Pros

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

LK

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.

MC

Mike C.

The compactness of it was definitely appreciated and it was nice to have one, easy to find location for all the important statistics.

Pros

Price look up and price change is easy. This product is really good and affordable, I already have 3 stores, I am using same Product for My all business.

AP

Andy P.

The integration between QuickBooks POS and QuickBooks itself is, as one should expect, outstanding. Both programs work exceptionally well together and make accounting very streamlined.

KH

Kevin H.

This software is full-featured and really does a great job of keeping track of everything going on in your store. From inventory to sales, the information is there and easy to access.

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.

MA

Melanie A.

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.

Melanie A.

Square permits fraudulent chargebacks against your company.

Cons

It regularly freezes up and I have to back out of they system and restart the program which is embarrassing and unprofessional when ringing up customers. Beware and do not purchase this version.

I have had nothing but problems. The first day we set it up there was an error and there continues to be same error message even though i have spent numerous hours on phone with customer service.

Lisa M.

Sometimes the shortcuts are not obvious, so I end up entering wrong numbers in wrong places. It is a little too quick for me.
