Pros

The super cheap and easy to use interface is awesome. Being able to carry a card reader at all times has improved the way I take deposits for gear rentals.
The compactness of it was definitely appreciated and it was nice to have one, easy to find location for all the important statistics.
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.

Pros

Great customer support, very easy to use brilliant for accountancy and amazing software.
After being held to one time only only for this call price and grand promises of excellent customer service.
Overall, the flexibility and customization is the best feature and the reason we stay. In addition, Epos is always updating and improving.

Cons

I had to sit with my bank to file a dispute with Square, put a hold on all charges by Square, and start using an entirely different payment processor just to avoid Square stealing my money.
A client purchased multiple packages totally thousands of dollars from my company, received the services, and then disputed the charges as 'unrecognized. I provided the following to square.
Square permits fraudulent chargebacks against your company.

Cons

Insistence that the problem was Xero for over a week was frustrating until eventually a functioning link was established to the API (not a Xero problem). Then the problems really started.
I have tried since December to get this account paused and stop being charged. I've been promised every single week since the first charge that they would "pause," and refund the charges.
I was warned by others and because of the price-point of their system I did not listen. Please don't make the same mistakes I've made.
