Joining the Garage Sale Trail? It’s OK to Leave Your Cash at Home

This weekend, over 14,000 garage sales and stalls will attract 350,000 people buying and selling across Australia as part of the Garage Sale Trail — a national day of haggling over pre-loved goods. If you’re headed out on the Trail, there’s no need to hit the ATM or bring cash with you this year: Square has partnered with the Garage Sale Trail to bring card acceptance to as many garage sales as we can — so you can tap your card, tap your phone and spend up big at some of the year’s most quirkiest and fun garage sales.

With just a tap of your card, phone or Apple Watch, you can pay for everything from retro computers and technology, studio samples and seconds from some of your favourite magazines, or even just picking up a snack or two to help support the Yarra Primary School in their crusade to upgrade their school toilets! With almost 1.9 million items for sale this year, there’s definitely going to be something for everyone.

Bottom line: someone’s trash could be your newfound treasure, so get out into your local community and celebrate Garage Sales across Australia without the hassle of having to visit the bank and get cash out.

The Garage Sale Trail kicks off this Saturday 22 October across Australia. If you’re hosting an event and are not set up with the fastest way to get paid, make sure you jump online and order your Square contactless and chip reader today. If you’re shopping along the Trail—have fun out there.

The Bottom Line is brought to you by a global team of collaborators who believe that anyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy.
