There’s a lot to think about when you start a business — naming, choosing a location (or if you’re online, building a site), determining a business structure, obtaining licenses, registering for taxes. And there’s even more to think about once you’re running it — inventory, payroll, marketing, etc.
But the most important thing to get in order when you run a business is payments. After all, even if you started a business to fulfill a passion, you still want to get paid.
So put this at the top of your list: You need to determine what kind of payments you are going to accept, how you accept those payments, and how you manage those payments.
If it sounds like a lot, don’t worry, we have you covered.
Dave Talach, Square’s head of payment products, recently joined Mark Vega, program manager at BusinessBlocks, for a discussion that covers everything you need to know about payments, including how to get started with a payment system that will grow with your business.
