UPDATED: Square, the mobile payment acceptance tool, has gotten a big endorsement from the President of the United States. The Obama re-election campaign said today it is equipping staff, field organizers and volunteers with Square hardware to allow them to process campaign donations from their mobile phone.
The news, announced in Politico, marks the first time a national campaign has deployed Square. The rollout will take place at all levels of staff and should help cut down on the time it takes to process campaign donations.
Here’s what Square had to say about the news:
Whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, running for president or local assembly, Square makes it easier than ever for candidates, organizations and volunteers to fundraise for their cause.
