Pros

Great customer support, very easy to use brilliant for accountancy and amazing software.
After being held to one time only only for this call price and grand promises of excellent customer service.
Overall, the flexibility and customization is the best feature and the reason we stay. In addition, Epos is always updating and improving.

Pros

I love how they offer the CRM tool and even more I love how easy is to create a website for your restaurant with them.
What I like the most about square processing payments is that it makes it very easy to restore that customer's information such as email, phone number and past transaction history and payments.
You will read that this product is all in one, and it really is. It is great for small businesses.

Cons

Insistence that the problem was Xero for over a week was frustrating until eventually a functioning link was established to the API (not a Xero problem). Then the problems really started.
I have tried since December to get this account paused and stop being charged. I've been promised every single week since the first charge that they would "pause," and refund the charges.
I was warned by others and because of the price-point of their system I did not listen. Please don't make the same mistakes I've made.

Cons

Beyond that steer clear if you are a restaurant. The convenient tech on the backend does not justify to the awful day-today, and utterly useless reporting.
Not a software, but a very minor inconvenience with the round jack. The reader would occasionally turn during a card swipe, causing a read error.
The back of house reporting is a disaster. Ve never worked with a more complicated, obtuse, confusing reporting function.
