Pros

Overall Square for Retail is a quality option to have at your disposal. I think it represents the best product of its kind; plus the company sends a Square reader to you for free.
I started my business last year and square has been fantastic to use for pop up's. Processing payments is a breeze and I have had very small issues that were resolved quickly and with ease.
You can create a personalized customer file for each customer and track their sales. I have square loyalty which lets you set up a customer loyalty program to reward regular customers.

Cons

Otherwise, you'll be charged more. I know that's just how POS systems are... but it's too bad we are charged a percentage of every purchase to simply use their product, given it's not their money.
Probably not at fault of the application, but sometimes would have to reconnect or close/reopen if internet connection was lagging. This could have led to customer upset in speedy checkout.
Sometimes the card reader would take a few swipes to actually read the card, and customers would kinda worry I was charging them more than once.
