T-Mobile Says It's Hip to Use Square
T-Mobile USA today announced that it will support the Square mobile payment service for its small business customers. With Square, small businesses can accept credit card payments nearly anywhere in the U.S. at any time. Square will allow small businesses to avoid setting up and/or paying for standard credit card payment systems and services. They need only be subscribed to one of T-Mobile USA's small business plans. T-Mobile believes that by supporting Square, it will give its customers a chance to grow their businesses by keeping operating costs low. T-Mobile USA is also part of the Isis joint venture with AT&T and Verizon Wireless, which will eventually bring near-field communications mobile payments to cell phones.
