Mobile payments system Square went down in Australia to end the week, and that was bad news for small businesses. Pickr’s editor Leigh Stark joined 3AW to talk what’s happening and what businesses can do.
Small businesses across Australia didn’t have the best of times getting customers to pay on Friday, September 8, as Square’s services went down nationwide. That meant cafes, hairdressers, and anyone who has largely moved on from cash had a time trying to get people to pay quickly using their phone and cards, which much of the nation uses now that cash is largely left behind.
So what could you do? Pickr editor Leigh Stark joined 3AW Afternoons with Jacqui Felgate to talk options and what was going on in the clip below.
