Great POS system for a great price

07/01/2017

Square is a great app with amazing features. It has a clean interface which helps a lot. When introducing Square to one of my clients they loved how easy it was to use the app with adding items to adding and rearranging items on the POS screen. The easy to use interface was great for them as they are older and they don't really understand technology but now they are waiting tables with their iPhones. They love using the Square Referral program to get free processing with their friends which make the experience a lot better. The cost of Square is also amazing with no monthly fees and the payment terminal. It's an amazing alternative to the banks. The only draw back is they haven't released Square Loyalty and Square Gift Cards in Australia so it is lacking some of the most important things a business needs to grow but they promise me that we should see some progress by the end of 2017.

Pros

Easy to use Great for all businesses Connects to Bluetooth recipt printers

Cons

Only works with Star printer not Epsom No Square loyalty or Gift Cards yet No offline more in Australia

Square is great for a small business

24/10/2016

My husband and I use square in our small retail store. We have used it for approximately 1.5 years now. It is a great all in one system - POS, inventory, sales tax management, etc. I would highly recommend to any small business owner.

Square Was an Awesome find for my Business!

06/04/2016

As a small business owner, I use Square when I am a vendor at markets so that customers are able to use a card when they do not have cash. Square is super straight forward, has an awesome app, and has a seamless checkout process. I have never had a problem with the App itself, nor processing an order. Customers always love that they can get their receipt emailed or texted to them, especially when at festival markets most vendors do not usually provide any receipts.

Pros

- The money processed through the App is sent to you within 2 business days. They say this to be safe I think, since I usually get my money into my account within 24 hours. - The app tracks all of your sales data and will give you a sales review. - When you sign up for an account, they provide you with a free card reader (as long as you have an official business number)
