Re: occasional payments offline

taking payments in person is as easy as installing an app on your phone.  if it is going to just be a couple payments you can just type in the card numbers, but if it will be many payments I would recommend getting the $49 NFC contactless Chip reader.


most any iPhone or iPad made in the last 4 or 5 years will work, Android support is a little more sporadic due to the fractured OS adoption and use and hardware diversity of the platform but most of the big brand late models will be ok.  check compatibility here.  https://squareup.com/help/us/en/article/3887-devices-compatible-with-the-square-magstripe-and-chip-c...
