Been using square (squareup.com) for over a year for my business and personal use. It works great. The swiping dongles are free, or $1, i don't remember which. I have a few that I keep in my car and business partner's car so we always have one available.
Once you have your account activated, you can even run cards without swiping them, although it is about a 1/2% higher fee.

Also, my customers love when they get to sign on my phone with their finger, and I email them a receipt with a picture and geolocation tag of where the transaction took place.

You can buy a Square reader in places like the Apple Store, BestBuy, RadioShack, etc., for about $10. You'll have to pay tax, but the box includes a $10 credit for your account.

You can also request they send you one for free.

Works good. Have used it a few times and have had no issues.

Square is 2.75% flat.

Intuit Swipe appears to be 2.7%, but 3.7% if you manually enter it (type in the card number instead of swiping). They do have a "high volume" account that has a lower percentage rate, but a monthly fee.

A buddy of mine, who owns a cigar shop that I frequent, has square and he loves it. I've been able to watch the shop for him a few times and use it myself, and it's so simple to use.
