Do you take credit cards with your phone? as you know there the square and pay pal to and most likely there other type of gear for your smart phone to take credit cards if you have some kind of business. As of right now I have the pay pal thing that goes in to my phone so I can take credit card as you know I am trying to get my food cat open. I will not take credit cards for every day business . but say I have a private part kind of like catering then I use the credit card device on my phone I will require a mini deposit for just stetting up my food cart. OK If you have a business do you take credit cards by phone?

I have been thinking about getting the PayPal device for taking credit cards by phone or tablet but haven't yet.

It's way too easy to end up with chargebacks for fraudulent transactions when you take them by phone. At least with PayPal you have some sort of protection. I'd rather use it than take them directly over the phone just to avoid having someone try to get their money back after the fact.
