    Default Using Square Device for Payment Processing?

    I've been setting up my website - revamping it from a standard HostGator one. I want more options than just Paypal (even if they can use a credit card through Paypal...maybe still avoid it).

    So in looking at my options - I'm wondering if there's a way to get the payment information and process it using the SquareUp Device that I use for purchases that occur in person?

    I've read a few things - but I'm not sure if there's an updated app/program that is approved to do this. I know the SquareUp company is okay with processing cards this way - I've checked on it. So I'm just wondering what that process would be to set that up.

    Or are there other CC processors out there that you can recommend that doesn't charge a monthly fee? Since we don't have much activity so far online (mostly in person) I don't want to be paying for something that's not being used.

    Thanks for any advice or help you can offer.

    I would also like to know about the possibility of using square as a credit card processor for a zencart site. I currently use a online merchant account and I know that is the safest way to go but lately the lack of sales and the monthly fees and extra fees they seem to always tack on have me looking for a less expensive option.

    It seems like that recently the zencart method of capturing CC information for offline processing is no longer up to par with the PCI guidelins. If that is the case is there any mod or way of collecting CC information for offline processing that is PCI accepted?

    I appreciate anyones thoughts on this :-)

    Just in case others are interested, the one way I found that you could collect cc info securely and process offline using something like square up would be to use a company like e-path .com .au. For a flat yearly fee they will collect the information for you securely and then you can process it offline. Does not help me as the yearly fee is a little more than what I pay for my current credit card merchant that uses authorize.net. So I will be staying with them for now and using the square up mobile processing for just that: "mobile processing" when I have a physical retail booth at an event.
