Square is awesome for accepting credit cards for small transactions.

The flat 2.75% rate is very favorable for say, a $5 transaction (coffee and muffin), when compared to 2-3% plus a $0.30 per transaction fee for "normal" card processing.

Rural people of moderate means are less likely to blow extra cash on overpriced, coal powered cars than are smug, overpaid urban snobs.
