How Square Market Could Revolutionize Indie Shopping
In 2010, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey launched a second company called Square. Until now, it's been best known for a piece of hardware — a credit card reader that plugs into a smartphone or tablet. You've probably come across it at a local boutique or neighborhood coffee shop (or at Starbucks, for that matter — Square is the processor of all Starbucks’ credit and debit transactions in the United States). But this month, Square has expanded with the launch of Square Market, an online marketplace that might just revolutionize indie shopping.
