    Hey there I was wondering if anyone is currently using a cellular POS system. I do not have a brick and mortar location, I make my sales on the boardwalk and could process a lot more transactions if I had a cellular POS. The only one that I could find that I understood was Square, according to their website its just 2.75% per swipe.

    in the US they have Square, in Europe iZettle, and in Brazil 2Pay http://news.planobe.com/en/2pay All of them work in the same way, using a small device called card reader and an iPhone. And the prices are just like you mentioned before, in square's case the fee is 2.75% of the transaction amount. iZettle charges 2,75% + 0,20 e per transaction. And the price in 2pay's case is not announced yet.

    It seems pretty limited right now but it might be worthwhile to checkout the Google Wallet mobile service.  I am sure it will only get better and more flexible as time goes on.

    I also believe Amazon, Mastercard and Paypal all have some type of mobile POS systems.  One I have heard decent things about as well is:

    Obopay

    Let us know which you decide to go with and how it works out.  This is probably a huge part of the future of banking and selling and I know a lot of businesses that have had tons of success setting these type of capabilities up for their customers.

    Use Square...its too easy to get setup, plus its becoming quite popular so people are getting more familiar with the product.
