    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.

    Hands down - great experience

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I send invoices + reminders. I use card reader for in person music lessons and switched to online options with ecwid / wordpress site. Just allowed me to give customers options and convenience. They were happy and I looked professional.

    Pros

    I've always admired square for how clean and well designed everything their products are. They gets the job done and are a lot more user friendly than others were.

    Cons

    I haven't noticed anything. Have not honestly needed to contact support. I never used the banking ach option for my customers cause it seemed more complicated for them.

    Good product

    Reviewed a month ago

    Very good. I liked the way you could use it in store and in the field.

    Pros

    It is easy to use and operate. Payments are almost instant. Payouts are daily and on time. Dispute process is also easy to use and understand

    Cons

    Reports didn't differentiate between online payments and card swipes. Very hard to gage the business when its all lumped together. Should categorize them separately

    Square does not reimburse for manual credit card transactoins

    Reviewed a year 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...
