Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Paypal Here

Do you have a small business that sometimes needs to take credit cards, but not quite enough to make it worthwhile to go through the hassle of getting a dedicated credit card machine?

PayPal today launched a new device, called PayPal Here, in the US, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong, that consists of a free, triangle shaped card reader and mobile phone application. The gadget connects into the top of iPhones and iPads allowing merchants to take payments on the go from any any of the four major credit cards (including American Express), PayPal accounts and even checks!

All card swipes have the same 2.7% rate with no hidden fees or commitments. Taking checks and issuing invoices are free of charge.

PayPal primary competitor in this space is Square. Their similar dongle charges 2.75% per swipe. Expect a bidding war.
