What is Square Payments?

Square Payments is an online payment processing solution which integrates with Square hardware and POS software to allow businesses to accept various payment types. Businesses can use Square Payments to make transactions from any location, deposit payments from all major credit cards, send invoices, store payment details for recurring customers, sell through e-commerce platforms, and more through integration with other Square tools and third party applications.

Key benefits of using Square Payments

  • Integrate with Square Invoices to send invoices from laptops or mobile devices directly to customers’ email inboxes and provide clients with a button to pay online or in person with credit and debit card processing.

  • Ensure payments are processed accurately and securely with automated features such as dispute management, PCI compliance management, fraud monitoring, chargeback protection, and more.

  • Integrate with third party e-commerce platforms such as BigCommerce, Weebly, Wix, WooCommerce, Ecwid, and more through the Square App Marketplace to sell online and process payments.

    Pros
    I love the simplicity of the software. I love being able to accept credit card or debit card payments directly on my phone with the small noninvasive card reader that i attach to my phone.
    I love this software, our employees love it too because it gives them better tips at the end of the day.
    Simple reporting is my favorite feature, especially compared to other platforms. Helping my clients with meaningful reporting without having to modify the data is super convenient.
    Cons
    I do not think I have have anything I do not like about square payments. I guess if you put in the wrong email that can be annoying but that more user error.
    I had to walk around & often ended up some distance away from the customer. It was awkward because I had to have their card with me & this probably made the customer feel uneasy.
    It also bothered me that they charge more to type in the card numbers when you’re unable to swipe the card in person.

    Couldn’t run my business without it.

    Reviewed 10 months ago

    I have loved using Square and have become a loyal customer. Their customer service has been excellent and I’ve never had any major issues and things run smoothly throughout my sales processes.

    Pros

    I love that it’s so easy to use and integrate into my business. Selling cbd, it was difficult to find a legitimate payment processor and square has delivered on all aspects.

    Cons

    I wish it would integrate directly with Shopify.

    Square does not reimburse for manual credit card transactoins

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    When it works it's okay and you get payments quickly.

    Cons

    When the card reader doesn't work, which can happen for multiple reasons (no wifi, the card's strip is worn out, the reader is worn out, etc.) Square has instructions on their Support page to enter the credit card information manually. I encountered this situation at my last show with 100% of my credit card sales, followed Square's instructions from their Support page, and received an "Approved" response...

    Dependable, secure, and easy to use

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    I’ve used square since I started my business over 12 years ago and it has been completely seamless I. How it’s evolved over the years and Good Morning they Ed added features that make sense and make my life easier.

    Pros

    I love how intuitive the backend office is to navigate

    Cons

    I least like that when using square through third party apps like Acuity, my clients don’t have the ability to add tips to their payment. I have to open the app separately and bill their card on file that way for them to add tips.
