PricingAccording to a blog post, you can pay $275 a month, up to $250,000 a year in revenue. Above that rate, it's a flat rate of $1 per transaction, plus the old 2.75 percent fee. You'll also pay the 2.75 percent on any purchase above $400.
Crunching the NumbersHow good of a deal is it? The math suggests if you're pulling over $10,000 per month in swipes, you should go for the flat rate. Although if you expect to get above $250,000, you may want to reconsider.
The flat fees and the regular 2.75 percent fees are both, of course, a departure from the usual 3 to 4 percent small businesses frequently pay credit-card processing companies, as well as a departure from the guesstimates required in picking a payments processor.

“With one monthly price, merchants know that the sales they’ve processed in a day is the same amount deposited in the bank,” says Square co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey in a statement.
