Pros
My overall experience has been great. I've only needed their customer service help once and they were awesome.
I can have access to my funds immediately for an additional fee, I can use it with my phone, they offered stock options when they first did an IPO, and I love the ease of use.
Implementing this with Squarespace and QuickBooks was super easy.
Cons
The worst part of Square Virtual Terminal is the Square part. Ive had horrible experience using Square in the past.
The transactions fees are a bit higher if you don't have the card present. Meaning if you take payment over the phone you will be charged a higher processing fee for that transaction.
The lack of features, cost and general lack of worth.

The BEST

Reviewed a year ago

Wonderful experience! I live this thing. I use it all the time and it’s the only thing I’ve ever used for my business. I’ve worked in the food industry for years before starting my own business and square is my favorite payment processing and terminal

Pros

The ease of use. I can be at home, at a market, at the studio and I can make seamless transactions anywhere with my cake business

Cons

No cons for the terminal itself. It’s not super expensive, but even if you’re just starting out they offer it on payment plans

Square for us is a dare

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have had a neutral experience with square, i had many problems that didn't meet our bussiness needs but they fixed everything and i returned everything and switched to paypal so i cant really complain to much

Pros

I liked their software easy to use and setup pos system and easy to program inventory and design

Cons

The hidden fees, expensive hardware, and non support for e-commerce solutions for online retail and non square customers. You must buy their expensive hardware and software monthly fees and maintenance fees and high transaction fees vs a standalone like paypal with no fees and all customers welcome

Great product, but needs work

Reviewed 2 years ago

I really like the product, ease of use, and portability, however, the connection issues are really a deterrent. Regarding online payments, I think the product is great for an e-commerce store. However, when you're at an event, whether it's on secured wi-fi or mobile data, the connection is really flakey.

Pros

The product is very easy to use and the interface is user-friendly. Square makes it very easy to accept payments in multiple formats including the chip-reader, swipe attachment, and the terminal.

Cons

I am constantly having issues with the connection and the card reader not working. I know Square has an option to accept payments when offline, but I don't have confidence in accepting high-dollar payments with this feature. I've been to several events where multiple vendors around me are also facing the same issue.

Easy to use and set up!

Reviewed 3 years ago

My overall experience has been great. I've only needed their customer service help once and they were awesome.

Pros

It's super convenient. I have clients all over the place and I go to them to create their fantastical portraits. I can take my virtual terminal anywhere and it works!

Cons

I haven't really found anything I don't like about this software. It does just what I need it to do and it works every time.
