Betty's Speakeasy cupcake shop ditches cash register, card-swipe reader for iPad

PC World writes about Betty's Speakeasy in Philadelphia's Graduate Hospital neighborhood, which is employing the new Square Register app for iPad to replace its traditional card-processing service.
“Right now we’re paying $69 a month in merchant services to swipe credit cards,” Snow said. “We won’t pay that with Square. [The new iPad] pays for itself very quickly.”
Such stories are behind the growing market for iPhone- and iPad-based card-swiping systems like those offered by Square. PayPal recently announced that it is launching its own card reader and app for iOS; it joins a sector that also includes big players like VeriFone’s Payware and Intuit’s GoPayment. (That list doesn’t even include Google Wallet, which is currently compatible with only the Nexus S 4G Android phone.)
