My clients couldn't even ask for a refund. All they could do was dispute the charges that were on hold and if they did that it would hurt my account and my credit.
One of its best features is how well it integrates with other systems. It's been an industry standard for years and is a safe bet when your payment processor needs to play nice with other programs.

I have just started using this software and I love it. I visited a store and the owner introduced me to this software to gain reward points after shopping to get exclusive content.
The Shopify integration does not work either, and for me failed at the first hurdle, (I have now been waiting 14 days for a fix).

Love the software and so does our staff. Expansion options were a major consideration as we have more takeout locations opening so this was a winning solution for us.
I've been trying to set up online ordering for weeks now. It's been counting a lot of problems because of the basic lack of customer support.

For example, today is a Friday and there have been 2 MAJOR OUTAGES in one day. Ultimately, this results in a terrible customer experience and literally costs thousands of dollars over time.
This POS system is terrible for retail shops doing anything more than a standard sale. It's unintuitive, confusing, easy to make errors and very frustrating.

Probably the worst over customer experience I have had across any industry. And this is not after one bad experience, this is spanning 3+ years.
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.

It is still hard to find our business even with the exact handle and there is no way to retract a payment if sent to wrong person. That's a little nerve racking if a client gets our @name wrong.
I understand from security reasons, but it is annoying. Apparently it is possible now, but has been a pain to figure out.
