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.
The ease of use, the sleek feel, great customer service and great rates. I trust Square with my business and so should you.

Pros

Integration with stripe is great feature; also the commitment to upgrades is solid, so easy to get up and running with economical equipment.
Easy to use and excellent platform with great customer service, any time I have needed help they have been there for me.
I've been satisfied with this product immensely and highly recommend it to persons looking for something innovative, feature rich and easy to use.

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

I do have problems with the system maintaining accurate item counts. That's really my main complaint My item counts are always off.
If you are using it for the first time, you might have a little headache. No detail video tutorial on how to use the software.
The new pricing is a bit ridiculous to me, Year and every year the price seems to go up.

Great product!

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've used Square for our business' market event with great success. The addition of emailing the customer a receipt adds value, as I don't need to purchase a docket printer, and the customer will never lose the receipt (if they choose to get one). Savings all around. The charge on the contactless reader is exceptional, and very convenient that it does not require constant charge from a power source to work.

Pros

The entry price point is fantastic, as most small businesses need a point of sale system for electronic payments, but can't afford or warrant bulky bank owned EFTPOS systems. Square is an amazing alternative.

Cons

Not much to dislike here, having the contactless reader and the magnetic strip separate is a little annoying, but otherwise a great system.

The new way to handle Point of sale

Reviewed 3 years ago

We started using Square just for events then migrated to using it for all of our credit card transactions and now we use it for our entire point of sale.

Pros

The overall ease of use is great. But the real winner for our organization was that the merchant fees were so much more reasonable than our prior merchant. The ability to track inventory is also very helpful, and has simplified my life.

Cons

The void system being only for restaurant usage is a bit frustrating. The reporting system could also use more options for customization.

Square for Retail is a great point-of-sale resource. We have a sales team who travel all southeastern states selling products wholesale. Square for retail processes our transactions seamlessly. It also aids in keeping track of our inventories as well. Their reporting system is very detailed, which helps us with our audits.

At this point, we are free trialing this product with our outside sales reps and their bosses have reported that they are acclimating to the devices well. As a result, I cannot find anything to negate the effectiveness of this product's software.

Pros

Provides an easy solution that has many flexible point of sale options. Employees can easily login and conduct sales or clock in/out on the unit itself. Easy access to manage users and roles for permissions and other actions. Plenty of options for customer oriented actions such as customizable receipts and invoices. Very customizable and suitable for a wide variety of business types.

Cons

Customer service, while good, is sub-par compared to other industry offerings. Often, it takes longer support times and generic responses to get something settled. There's been a few times where I had to find a solution online myself because the official support took too long to get back to me. The hardware occasionally had problems such as not connecting to the main system or phone, or not accepting a charge for mobile devices.

Square Payments Processing is a good credit card processing system

Reviewed 4 years ago

Square is very convenient specially attending off-site events. We were able to get it up and going at any time. Other Points of Sales software is very clunky when it comes to a mobile application. Because of the versatility and ease of use, we do recommend it for small businesses.

Pros

Square is a payment processing system with supporting systems such as Point of Sale. We initially did the trial period to determine if it meets our requirements. It was very user-friendly and easy to use. The training was easy for the staff. If we had any issues, customer support from Square was always available. Sometimes we did have a short wait, but issues were always resolved.

Cons

Square didn't have a many features as other Point of Sales software. Reporting and analytics were pretty limited. The software did have some, but not as much as we needed. Support was available, but sometimes we had to wait to get help.

Square: Easy To Use Retail POS Portable System

Reviewed 2 years ago

When I first saw the “Square” over ten years ago, I was in disbelief that a small device could ever replace such a large device. I’m impressed and amazed at exactly how far this and other similar devices and software have come.

Pros

Square for Businesses accelerates the Small Business by conveniently placing everything at Your Fingertips. The Owner simply enters the products into the inventory portion of the system, via the barcode method or sku. This enables tracking and easy locating of individual products, as well as return mailing. This assists in accounting, creating a work schedule for busier days and payroll as well. Square connected to IPad as Point of Sale is everything one needs to conveniently run a connected business.

Cons

Square has been known to permit chargebacks too easily, without requiring authorization.

Vital for My Business

Reviewed 2 years ago

I would highly recommend Square for all your retail POS needs.

Pros

As a small business that travels from sale shows to sale shows, we cannot rely on a POS system that is wired in as we never know what type of venue we are in. Having the ability to charge customers via my phone has made business much easier. The incorporation of cash/check customers check out ability allows me to maintain inventory without the need to separately or manually change stock after the fact.

Cons

Not much, Square charges a small fee for each transaction but they need to make money so I totally understand. It is also a small amount.

Square for Outdoor Retail Transactions

Reviewed 4 years ago

Square is accessible with a low entry cost and it allows users to get into the point-of-sale with credit cards easily. Per transaction cost is expensive. Now that certain banks offer the same buffering that Square does (at one time, Square was one of only a few), I believe I would have been better off selecting a local bank to work with that has a lower per transaction fee. However, for me, the customer service really is the downfall of Square. While everything is working, all is good. Once a problem arises, it becomes dicey.

Pros

If you are in an outdoor recreational type of business, Square works well because it does not require internet to complete a transactions. It's buffering capabiity provides 72 hours of time between a transaction and when it must be connected to the internet to "send" the transaction . This allowed us work near a riverbank where internet was not available and still accept credit cards. This was hugely important.

Cons

On one occasion, we had a transaction which billed double on the customer's credit card yet we only received payment once. Her bank directed her to us. Square's customer service was dismal. I ended up just eating the $150 transaction vs. attempting to work with them. Had I used a local bank, I think this would have been resolved with much more ease.

There are some specific reports for retail that I'd like to be able to pull that it doesn't have the capability of.

Good POS for small retail businesses

Reviewed 4 years ago

Setup of the self-hosted version was simple enough. It's just a PHP app, as the name says. The online trial is a pretty good a feel for the system before purchase, so I would recommend that.

Pros

Easy to use web based front end and administration interfaces. Works well with touchscreens (capacitive or resistive) or mouse/keyboard. Option to be cloud or self-hosted.

Cons

In our case, it was not suitable for some use-cases, as it caters to retail environments and not hospitality (restaurant, bar, etc).

Absolutely Amazing Point of Sale

Reviewed 5 years ago

Phenomenal; and that's not hyperbolic at all. We are in the process of opening two more retail businesses and know for certain we will use PHP Point of Sale for each of them when we are ready to open. By far the easiest part of setting up a retail shop is dealing with the folks at PHP Point of Sale. Thank you for all the help getting started!

Pros

Support: Their support team is incredible! They go above and beyond what we expected. Ease of Setup: Our systems administrator said she loved getting this up and running and that getting set up with WooCommerce was simple. Ease of Use: Straight forward and well documented when you run into any snags. We had our Point of Sale up and running well before the slow credit card processing companies even thought about helping us.

Cons

Bitcoin Support: Quite literally the only negative I can think of is not being able to accept bitcoin payments (although, you can still tag them as cash sales if you prefer). It would just be nice to have that integrated natively, but it's really not a deal breaker.
