How to accept Bitcoin payments:
Purchase an iPad
[Square might help a merchant with this part, and the base.]
Purchase an iPad stand (which has a swivel base)
From an iPad download the iOS version of My Wallet from BlockChain.info/wallet:
(and click "View download instructions)
Download Square Register app:
Ring up sale and accept cash, credit card, or bitcoin.
When ready for payment, tap Charge. The following is displayed:
For bitcoin payments, use the Blockchain for iOS app to convert the USD price into an amount of Bitcoins.
- [Blockchain for iOS and Android does this for USD. Also http://Preev.com
will work for other currencies.]
From the Blockchain/wallet My Wallet website click Receive Payment and enter the amount of BTC to accept. This will show the QR Code.
Swivel the iPad stand so customer can scan the QR code with their mobile
Swivel back and watch for Payment details to show the payment received (a few seconds in most instances)
On Square Register app, enter the USD amount and tap Tender.
Print a receipt for customer. Print a second receipt and write down amount of BTC payment for reconciling by back office.
Say thank you to customer.
And perhaps a thank you to Square for the free, advanced point-of-sale app:
