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

Makes for easy transfers in or out of my bank account and customer service is AMAZING. Customer Service is also available through chat, and I LOVE that.
I love Venmo and would recommend it to anyone who needs an easy way to send or request money. I have found it to be more user friendly than PayPal and other similar products.
The app is super easy to navigate and also is great for paying friends, because there is no fees like with paypal. The app is super inexpensive and an even be completely free if used a certain way.

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

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.
There is a potential of 'abuse' in that the transactions are irreversible. Also, the default setting is 'public.

Reviewed 4 years ago

It’s alright, I do still use it often. But clients try to use Venmo or Facebook pay more.

Pros

It was easy to use and had several options and customizations that you could use and add and I thought that was pretty cool.

Cons

It charges people a fee just to process through square and I think the fee dollar amount may be low but it still is taking away from what you earned.

Great CC processing

Reviewed 3 years ago

With Square I was able to open my inventory to more customers. Square seems to make my customers more comfortable than say PayPal or Venmo.

Pros

Square makes accepting credit and debit cards so easy! With either online or mobile you have the power to send invoices and collect payment.

Cons

Setup can get a little confusing. Also, make sure to turn off taxes if you do not collect sales tax.

Overall, we need the service and possibly need to update our equipment and account.

Pros

Square provides us an opportunity to process payments that are paid through credit cards or debit cards when individuals do not have cash or a payment app such as Venmo or Zelle.

Cons

We are hit with processing fees and often the system fails or goes off line, leaving processing times taking days to go through.

I like that it's super easy to set up. All you need is a phone or computer with a headphone jack, and you're good to go! Just download the app and start swiping!

Cons

I think what I like least is that it's still a physical square you swipe your card with. In the days where Venmo and Paypal do all online transactions, I think Square is a bit behind.

Simple and easy to use, great for a small company!

Reviewed 5 years ago

If you are starting a small business, square is simply a must. I can't help but wonder it's longevity with the rise of apps such as venmo, but for the time being I would highly recommend.

Pros

Initial set up was a snap and there was virtually no learning curve. The card reader was easy to use and made transactions extremely convenient. Works on both android and apple. Website was simple and made it very easy to customize receipts and other options.

Cons

Experienced lagging at times. Take care of the card reader as it is small and could get lost easily. I would recommend having a backup.

Great system I’ve used it as a business and a customer however not competitively priced

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall I’m happy with square I use it and Venmo/PayPal because it’s free also PayPal has the tools for shipping built into their system so I can easily use that. Another plus for PayPa is that it has email functions.

Pros

I love that the square POS it’s simple to process purchases and sales. Very user friendly easy to input items sku number and names and addresses and create invoices and receipts to be emailed or texted to customers.

Cons

Not competitively priced the fees are not as low as other point of sales. They have built a great name and can charge higher prices.

Great system for mobile consumers

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I like when pop-up companies that I purchase from have this option, it makes it easy and safe for me to make purchases without having to use a Venmo or cash app option that takes fees/percentages. I also like how they send details of purchases and receipts to me via mobile right away.

Cons

Because this system often heavily relies on internet service it takes a few tries for payments to go through, it can be slightly frustrating to have to swipe or tap my card multiple times and avoid repeat charges.

I LOVE SQUARE!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Square has made it super simple as a small business owner to get started and to keep track of my accounting.

Pros

I am a small business owner and square is so easy and affordable and it allows me to access all kinds of information about my business that I would have no idea that I needed until later when it was difficult to gather that information. Its affordable and is set up so I pay for my fees as I go with each transaction instead of a huge fee at the beginning or end of the month. It is also easy for me to...

Cons

I wish that I could somehow accept payments through Venmo as well as PayPal. I also sometimes have trouble syncing updates for products from my computer to my phone but not the other way around and I haven't quite figured out if I'm doing something wrong or not.

A nice app, but rarely used and so not useful

Reviewed 2 years ago

It was decent, when I used it. But it's a bit like a rental car offering stick shift--few people will use it, and even those that ask for it wouldn't be concerned if it wasn't available.

Pros

It works well, and has a reputation for being secure.

Cons

It's a nice app... but nice apps aren't useful if they're not widely known or used. PayPal, Zelle, Venmo--all of these are familiar to my customers. Square isn't, as even having it as an option can confuse people unfamiliar with it. I only offer it if asked... and that's rare.

Square is Great

Reviewed 8 months ago
Pros

I have been using Square since before Venmo and PayPal were a thing. I really liked being about to take customer cards. As Square grew, I enjoyed the new features, inventory, reports, etc. But I did mostly MLM businesses and I was not very good at them or at least I didn't have the right leadership that I needed. Now, as an emerging business owner, Square is a little bit much for what I need but I'm sure I'll use it more in the future when I need to expand my business.

Cons

In the beginning, Square was not as user friendly as it is now.

Square Point of Sale

Broadens Our Donation Horizons

Reviewed a year ago

Fundraising has changed drastically in the last decade. Not having the ability to accept mobile payments and donations was once an obstacle that made it more difficult for organizations such as ours to raise funds. Now, it has become an essential part of business. Square gives small organizations like ours the ability to utilize mobile payments at an affordable price with an easy-to-learn system.

Pros

We use Square at our office and when we make presentations offsite. At our office, Square replaced another point of sale device. I personally like Square more than our older device, but it's not life-changing. The biggest draw for us was Square's mobile payment system. We had consistently lost potential donations at offsite events because we had to take either cash or check, or have them call our office...

Cons

Using the Square device at our office is on par with other similar devices. There are no major shortcomings, there just isn't anything that stands out. However, the benefits of using it offsite were what drew us to Square in the first place. Since we are fully committed to Square offsite, it only made sense to utilize it onsite as well so our staff doesn't have to learn multiple software.

The easiest point of sale app on the market

Reviewed 8 months ago

Overall highly positive. Would recommend to anyone in need of a safe and convenient cash transfer and Point of Sale app.

Pros

Implementation was incredibly easy and most of my staff (and clients) are already familiar with the application. The credibility of any financial app is critical, so the security and financial insurance Venmo provides is what made the deal for my team.

Cons

There is no easy-to-use air-touch feature where two adjacent phones can automatically link for payment. However, this would just be a nice ancillary benefit and is not critical.

Overall, I love using Venmo. People can place orders over the phone, email, text and I can get payment. It's an excellent solution when my point of sale system isn't readily available.

Easy to use anywhere and extremely adaptable. Notes and memos help keep track of what money is going where for what reason. The personalization gives it a feeling of social media, which is fun.

Cons

I'm not sure I want everyone to be able to see what money is going where and why. It's possible to turn off that feature, but it took a little while to figure that out.

Easiest point of sale option for mobile users.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Very easy to set up, link with your bank, and start using. Being able to quickly disperse or request payments is a game-changer in this fast-paced, digital market. Everyone needs Venmo at least as an options for point of sale.

Cons

The only issue I have is that the dispute process for incorrect charges is a little clunky and long-winded. I think this has gotten better over the years and definitely doesn't deter me from recommending it.

Good Customer Support

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, my experience with Venmo has been positive. They have assisted me when I have needed it and appreciate their customer support.

Pros

This app has good customer support. The team is helpful in solving problems, but sometimes can be challenging to work around the email communication. This app is easy for use of payments to vendors and service industry workers. I appreciate the free deposits for 3-5 day delivery.

Cons

One con of this app is the fees that are inflicted when paying service workers or depositing money quickly. I understand the need for these fees though and appreciate that using the app in place of point of sale systems requires a service fee.

Finally Joined

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It took me a long time to join Venmo. I just didn't want another way to send people money....but I finally joined after needing to send money to someone who ONLY accepted Venmo. And I'm glad I did. It was so quick and easy and I could send money using email, phone number and other methods, too.

Cons

I've used Venmo a few times and have had a successful experience. Just be sure to check if you are sending to a friend or if this is a point of sale as fees will be charged for the latter.

Use it for my small business

Pros

I use this for our online small business. Venmo is easy to use for our customers online and in person. We use it as our point of sale platform. There is low fees and it easily connects with our business accounts. We haven't had any issues with Venmo.

Cons

I don't really have an issue with Venmo. Everything has been smooth sailing with Venmo as our POS for our small business.

I am using this primarily instead of PayPal, square or cash ap now

Pros

This product allows me the ability to collect payment and send appayments with great ease. I don't find some of the typical fees I found when using other patforms

Cons

The public knowledge of seeing when money is given. I know it. Can be turned off but I can't expect others to do that as well

The Best Digital Payment Software Available

Reviewed 5 years ago

My experience has been positive overall. I hate owing people money, so Venmo allows me to square up with them immediately. At this point, I get frustrated when people don't have the app. Everyone with a smartphone should have it by now.

Pros

Venmo is a secure way to easily exchange money between friends, family, coworkers, etc. I've never had any security issues with it. Making payments is fast and simple. My favorite feature is the ability to request money from someone. It's a friendly way to say "Pay me now!"

Cons

I think the user interface could use some improvement. It would be nice if I could just scroll through a list of friends as opposed to having to search for them. Maybe I'm just missing something. Seems like a pretty basic feature to not have.

Money

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall my experience has been helpful on collecting for items sold or to transfer money.

Pros

I like the ease of transferring money when needed and being able to collect money from the sale of products.

Cons

I don't like the notification process. I didn't know when a transfer was waiting for me to take action. Also I had people not confirm their transfers and had to get back with them.
