Square’s let you securely wire money via its (cringe-inducingly named) $Cashtags for a bit now, but the feature’s gotten a little more streamlined as of late. Now, you can specify a dollar amount for payments by appending the ‘tags with a number. For example: cash.me/$RED/5 is a $5 donation toward AIDS research, as the payment company cleverly pointed out in its announcement tweet. Whether or not your pursuits are as noble are entirely up to you.
You can now add a number to the end of any $Cashtag to lock in a dollar amount. And you will. Oh yes you will. http://t.co/uLfqCvKfQ1
