Square is a good choice. I use PayPal simply because I had a PayPal account to start with. I have a couple of wireless card readers that I use often at shows and when taking payments for work, and I can send invoices that can be paid online using PayPal, or any major credit card. Square can do all of that as well. I think Square’s fee is about 0.1% lower than PayPal.

I do recommend getting a reader with a chip option if you plan to do POS activity. The little free swipe-type reader that Square and PayPal offer is crap. Nothing makes you look dumber than standing there in front of a customer and swiping a couple dozen times to get it to read the card. Square’s option is $49, I paid $25 for each of mine.
