The future of transactions is online. Retailers and social media platforms are working closely to help users make seamless payments and maintain a smooth user journey and experience.
As US presidential elections are gearing up, Twitter could not let the opportunity pass by and has introduced a way to donate to politicians through tweets. This whole mechanism is brought to you with the help of Square payments – let’s just not forget that both companies share the same CEO, that is Jack Dorsey.
For the politicians that wish to participate in this scheme, signing up for donations via Twitter is easy. All the have to do is register their campaign through Square, verify it, and then communicate on a tweet their donation card that includes a “Contribute” button.
For users that want to contribute, all they have to do is own a Square account, connected with their Twitter one.
The benefits of this collaboration are quite obvious. First of all, Twitter attracts politicians on its platform, while Square gets to generate a substantial revenue, by withholding 1.9% out of each transaction.
We have the momentum. Let's keep it going! Contribute to our campaign today: http://t.co/LCtn5ZDFNu
