The only thing that has ever been slightly frustrating is the traditional card reader being sensitive when swiping cards. Sometimes I'll have to try 3-4 times to get it to register.

My only real complaint is that when I have an urgent call because a customer is waiting, I can never get through to someone right away. It can take some time for someone to get back with me.

We have been told that this is due to us using First Nashville, but it is hard to believe that a processor of this size is not set up in your system for this to be handled.

Make Sales From Anywhere

Reviewed 2 years ago

Square is really the only POS that allows you to enter product price by weight with decimals. For this reason alone, I have stuck with Square POS.

Pros

I use square POS when selling at Farmers Markets. Square makes it easy to collect payments from any location as long as you have internet/wifi. I also like that I can charge customers by weight (oz, lb, etc) instead of just single (whole) unit price.

Cons

Finding products in the interface is not as seamless as other POS systems I have used. For example, shopify pos has a great interface showing product images, etc for POS. I wish Square would update their interface.

It is a great POS and any retailers needs a POS so it is a good option.

Pros

It is easy to use and they are always updating and adding more features. Great option for most retail applications.

Easy POS to use but very basic

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

This software is super easy to use but lacks the sophistication that a retail shop needs. Simple software that anyone can learn.

Cons

If you need something to track inventory and help with POs / ROs and other more sophisticated POS features there are definitely better options out there.

Worth the rate, time, perfect for small buisness

Reviewed 3 years ago

This is a wonderful POS system for small businesses. Their rate is very low and there is no monthly cost on top of it (unlike other POS systems). You will also get access to other software and service through square at a reduced rate from other similar systems, making this a perfect set up for small businesses.

Pros

Square POS is the best option for small business. In the end, you will be paying less for this we service than with with POS systems, including the cost of you register system. POS gives you so much and access to so much more for such little cost.

Cons

I have currently had no issues with Swuare POS.

Definitely a must have for new shops!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Where to start?! Square makes the ability to receive payments seamlessly effortless. The Point of Sale system is hands-down one of the best, if not the best in the market. One of my favorite aspects about the POS is there is no long contracts and all one needs is internet access. The Square software includes everything a shop owner needs - inventory, discounts, employee management, etc, while the POS handles the exchange of funds.

Cons

There is not really a con to the Square POS system. I have referred many of my clients to use Square POS and they are all satisfied.
