Alternative, Creative Ways to Accept Credit for Sales

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX: Decided to stop stressing about using my Square contactless chip reader for the first time at my event tomorrow night, and instead to be creative about how I offer folks ways to pay by credit!

W
​ays to accept credit at gigs:

a) Paypal on the spot (using your or their phone or tablet, etc.)
b) Take now, pay later (Trade contact info, and later arrange payment)
c) Accept personal checks (Take contact info, etc.)
d) Accept EBT/SNAP: A featured poet once said she accepted food stamps for her chapbooks - after the gig they'd just go across the street and the buyer would buy a box of cereal or whatever. I loved that!​

(If you have any more ideas, please comment!)
