Jack Dorsey’s mobile payment service Square is embracing New York Fashion Week with this new stylish credit card reader, TechCrunch reports.The new reader was created by fashion designer Vivienne Tam, who will be selling it on her website and retail stores for $10.

Although Square readers are normally free with an account, proceeds for Tam’s “Double Happiness” reader will go to the Happy Hearts Fund, an organisation that aids children affected by natural disasters.

Like all Square readers, the Double Happiness reader will work with any iOS or Android device that has a headphone jack.

You can order the new reader from Tam here, then download the Android or iOS app to get started.
