Buy Mobile Gift Cards With Square Wallet For The Holiday Season Today (Video)

A new version of the Square Wallet app, which works with Apple Inc.  iPhone and iPad as well as devices running Google Inc.’s software, lets users buy and redeem mobile gift cards in amounts from $10 to $1,000. Square enables retailers to accept payments with a device that plugs into a smartphone or tablet.

Mobile Gift cards are Square’s latest effort to convince customers to choose its fledgling service over PayPal Here, a mobile card reader that also works with smartphones and tablets. Square’s gift certificates may help the company gain share in the market for mobile payments, which Juniper Research estimates may top $170 billion in transactions by 2015, up from about $60 billion last year.
