Square may have pioneered the credit card-swiping mobile payments, but Intuit beat it to the punch in Canada. Yep, their GoPayment is now live in the country allowing anyone to accept card payments with nothing but their iPhone — with BlackBerry and Android versions in development as we speak.
The device itself is free and you’ll be paying a small percentage only when accepting payments: 3.3% if you manually enter digits or 2.7% per swipe. Moreover, there are no setup fees, monthly minimums, or any kind of commitments; as soon you want to stop using GoPayment, you’re free to do so.
When it comes to compatible credit cards, Intuit’s service works with Visa and MasterCard, and we’re guessing AMEX will be added at some point in the future.
