Unsolicited Advice: Get Squared Away


Illustration: thinkstock

Plumbers, electricians, tub refinishers, handymen, I’ve learned a lot from you in this process (see story). Here’s some advice in return: Start taking credit cards. Many of you still don’t, as though it’s 1973 or something. There’s this thing called the Square. It plugs into your smart phone; with that, and an app, you can swipe a credit card anytime, anywhere. We want to pay you, we really do. Please make it easy. squareup.com
