Angie's List And Square Working Together To Bring Mobile Payments, Improved Business Relationships To Local Marketplace

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angie's List, the national consumer review service, is working with Square, the payment innovator that is making commerce easy for everyone, to enable mobile payments in the field, as part of its services offered via the Angie's List Business Center mobile app.

The Angie's List Business Center app allows companies to seamlessly accept payments in the field, track e-commerce purchases, create invoices, and respond to member reviews as soon as they appear online. Merchants will also have access to free analytics reports, which can be used to make important business decisions.

"Working with Square will help provide happier transactions for our members and service companies," said Angie's List Founder Angie Hicks. "We're excited to work with Square because they understand what small businesses need to succeed." Hicks said Angie's List will continue to look for ways to further expand convenience to its members and the service professionals they review.

"Whether on site or at a customer's home, people will now have a fast, reliable way to accept payments. With Square, Angie's List businesses can focus their time and energy on what really matters—doing great work," said Square co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey. "We're proud to work with Angie's List to make life easier for businesses of all sizes." Square offers a free credit card reader that allows anyone to accept credit cards anywhere, with one simple, low transaction rate of 2.75 percent per swipe, with no hidden fees. Funds from swiped payments are typically available the next business day, eliminating the wait for cash flow.

The Angie's List Business Center mobile app is currently available on iOS.

Angie's List helps consumers have happy transactions with local service professionals in more than 550 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. More than 1.7 million paid households use Angie's List to gain unlimited access to local ratings, exclusive discounts, the Angie's List magazine, and the Angie's List complaint resolution service.

Square is making commerce easy for everyone. Square Reader enables anyone to accept credit cards anywhere, anytime at one simple rate. Square Register serves as a full point-of-sale system for businesses to accept payments, track inventory, and share menu and location information. Square Wallet, available in the US, is the most seamless way to pay, enabling individuals to pay with their names at their favorite local businesses, discover new ones nearby, explore menu listings, and store receipts. Founded in 2009, and headquartered in San Francisco, Square is currently available in the U.S. and Canada. More information is available at .
