Pros

The greatest benefit that came from this software, for me, is the ability to conduct business, specifically, complete a payment transaction, no matter where you are located.
Square is an awesome piece of software to use. The retail side has great capabilities for sales, inventory, gift cards, rewards, and much much more.
Square is very simple to learn and use as an end user, and it has gain a lot of popularity recently, customers feel more and more comfortable with this system.

Pros

I love the simplicity of the software. I love being able to accept credit card or debit card payments directly on my phone with the small noninvasive card reader that i attach to my phone.
I love this software, our employees love it too because it gives them better tips at the end of the day.
Simple reporting is my favorite feature, especially compared to other platforms. Helping my clients with meaningful reporting without having to modify the data is super convenient.

Cons

If I am to complain about something I would complain about the percentage I am giving back to square but that it the cost of doing business.
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.
I dislike that it fails sometimes and it is not accessible at many different vendors and restaurants.

Cons

I do not think I have have anything I do not like about square payments. I guess if you put in the wrong email that can be annoying but that more user error.
I had to walk around & often ended up some distance away from the customer. It was awkward because I had to have their card with me & this probably made the customer feel uneasy.
It also bothered me that they charge more to type in the card numbers when you’re unable to swipe the card in person.

Love Love Square

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, I prefer square any day over stripe and PayPal payments.

Pros

Love live square. Love that it can be used for both in store and online payments. It sync with my quickbooks which saves me a whole lot of time. It gives detail daily reports which includes best seller of the day, number of sales, number of products sold and what type of product sold, taxes paid, types of payment the customers used, plus it syncs with my online store inventory. Square gives you all the detail info you never realized you need till you need it all in one place. So easy to use and tailored for retailers. Love the Apple Pay feature too.

Cons

My big con with square integration is it doesn’t sync well with bigcommerce. By that I mean, my online sales gets imported as a custom order so there is no itemized list of what the customers bought. Also with bigcommerce, there is no way for me to take Apple Pay or other digital wallet payments. Square does have digital wallet payment options with their square space shopping cart. Fingers crossed they will fix this custom import stuff soon.

I like that our techs can use it to get payments from customers over the road. I like that it emails the receipts.

The square box itself can be touch sometimes with certain cards but it might be the fault of the card itself and not the software.

easy way to get payments

Reviewed 5 years ago

I've been using Square for several years now, to take client payments. I do a lot of in-person sales (photography), and easily take payments with the Square app on my phone and the plug-in card swiper. But Square also allows me to take payments over the phone, where the card isn't present.

Pros

Square is SO easy to use to take payments, even if the card isn't in hand.

Cons

I haven't found anything I don't like. It's comparable with similar options as far as pricing goes.

Pros

I think square makes payment collection for small businesses a breeze. As a user, I have always found it easy to make payments through Square.

Cons

I think the price point can be a bit high for small businesses that could utilize this service the most. Possibly implementing a tiered pricing structure that would be more attainable for small business with no/fewer employees could be a thought.

Love using Square to process credit card payments!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Square allows us to process credit card payments and send invoices. It is highly recommended. The fee for processing is nominal and the payments are processed quickly.

Pros

Square is very valuable for small businesses to process credit card payments. It is very easy to use and to create and send invoices. Square notifies you via email when an invoice has been paid and payments are processed quickly. I highly recommend Square for those needing to process credit card payments. The fee is nominal and it is a wonderful source!

Cons

There is nothing negative with Square. I never had a bad experience or issue. You can either swipe a card with the square reader or send an invoice to be paid electronically. It is very convenient.

Square simplifies life...when it works.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Square enables me to easily accept payments from clients who wish to use credit cards.

Pros

I use Square to accept payments from clients who opt to use a credit card. It is convenient and almost all clients are familiar with and comfortable using it. I appreciate the feature of being able to store credit card numbers in the event of no-shows as clients have agreed to pay if less than 24 hours notice is given for a cancellation. I also appreciate the flexibility of saving multiple items/services to accommodate different individual rates, types of sessions and workshops.

Cons

I've found the relationship between my phone and chip reader to be tenuous at times. On multiple occasions, I have found them no longer communicating when I try to process a payment, which requires extra time to get them synched again. As a counselor, it's also disappointing/problematic that Square denies clients' health benefit cards.

Square Payments is best but not for everyone

Pros

There is no doubt that they are one of the best amount other competitors. For Example:1. Fast Payments processing 2. Integration with websites and online stores.3. Listing products in your inventory 4. Invoices creation And many more, indeed its best but not all of us.

Cons

The worst thing about square Payments is that they are not made for small businesses. I remember when my uncle applied for square Payments but they rejected and closed my uncle account saying that they won’t support his business.Short story is that if your business has good worthiness then you can use square, otherwise stay away.

More than just collecting payments

Reviewed 4 years ago

It helps us collect payments and track valuable data. Big step up from our old cash register. I would recommend it.

Pros

Square came with an app that creates a point of sale system where our list of items for sale are added to a client's bill with the touch on the screen.

Cons

I think the percentage collected on transactions is high for smaller operations with a brick and mortar structure like ours. It seems acceptable for operations with low overhead costs (online businesses with minimal inventory).

Great for Processing Payments at Events

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Square payments work consistently and have a nice simple user interface. It's much easier to train staff in on Square Payments mobile app than on many other point of sale software options available.

Cons

We no longer use Square payments. Instead, we use Shopify's payment processing because it is naturally tied into our inventory system. We may use Square again in the future for one-off events where products are not included in our online inventory system.

Square payments for your on the go processing needs

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've had a great overall experience with Square Payments Processing so far in my personal and business dealings. It works great and is easy to use.

Pros

Square Payments Processing makes point of sale extremely easy when out and about. It allows small to large businesses many options in the payment sector.

Cons

I dislike the cost per transaction that Square Payments Processing charges. I wish it were cheaper per transaction or there was an option to subscribe monthly with a fee instead of per transaction costs.

Square Cash the best

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use Square almost everyday. Its pretty much essential for my business now.

Pros

I Love the Point of sale features also that you can get free equipment to use for check outs. I prefer Square over Paypal anyday.

Cons

what i didn't like was the fact that it takes a couple days for the transaction to process. It would help out if they did same day processing.

Square Still Best

Reviewed 5 years ago

Everything goes smoothly and I’ve little issues of any kind. Square stays on top of it consistently.

Pros

There is diversity of rather easy to use accessories. They are sleek looking and hold their battery charge or are rather functional. Square also seems to be the universal “go to” for point of sale.

Cons

The charge per purchase that goes to square seemed to be higher than others. I looked around at better deals so to speak but I still landed on square because, we’ll, it’s just better than anything else I’ve seen, even tho it’s a little more pricy.

Square Makes Entrepreneurship Easy

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Square offered a point of sale device as a promotion for a while. This plugged right into a cell phone and allows small business owners to manage services and goods in a matter of minutes. Location verification is also used in receipt generation and is supposed to prevent fraud (I believe). Note, although I selected square for use, I did so on a personal level for myself, not for my company. Square (or at least the mobile Point of sale products) would not be helpful to a company with more than 10 employees or more than one to two locations in my opinion.

Cons

Square makes business easy but it doesn’t seem to offer much support to ASPIRING business owners or people with little experience.

Best POS for High Volume Transactions

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, Square keeps winning our business for it's ease of use, reliability, and transparency in costs.

Pros

No per swipe fees and a flat rate fee make Square the most transparent point of sale software of the market. Accepting payments is easy and straightforward. After 10 years of use, we have shopped around and can't find a better, easier to learn interface than the Square system for our high volume storefronts.

Cons

Integration with other software could be better, such as with Quickbooks online. Support has never been great but has improved over the last 3 years.

Must-have tool for my handmade business

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use the Square swiper to process sales at my local farmer's market AND for online sales via my online WooCommerce shop. I choose Square for the lower processing fees and because the point of sale app is so easy to use. The integration with WooCommerce generally works well with only a few glitches here and there. I definitely prefer my customers use Square versus PayPal. Much nice tracking and reporting with Square.

Pros

I use the Square swiper to process sales at my local farmer's market -- always works. Very reliable! I also have Square integrated into my shop website (WooCommerce) to process purchases. Fairly easy to set up. Also like that the processing fee has remained low.

Cons

The WooCommerce-Square integration can be somewhat finicky at times. Probably about a 95% uptime rate -- but once in a while a transaction will not go through. Usually a quick reconnect but can be frustrating. Not sure if the issue is with Square or WooCommerce, though -- they blame each other. ;)
