Easy access credit card processing for a reasonable rate.

2018-04-24

Easy access to affordable credit card processing.

Pros

Easy to use anywhere, any time. Payments post to my bank account quickly, and I love the instant deposit feature which allows for instant deposits of transactions over $50 into your bank account for an additional 1% fee.

Cons

I wish the iphone app hosted the Dashboard features so I didn't have to login online to access instant deposit and other specific information.

Easy to use and automated to free up my time.

2018-03-09

Pros

When I get a new client, I set them up on recurring payments 1 time, and I know payments will be deducted the same day each month.

Cons

There is a small fee for electronic payments and if you want to automate recurring payments, the fee is higher.

Excellent for 8 years

2018-05-02

The ability to always process credit and or debit cards

Pros

Ability to run valuable reports for business.

Cons

The square app takes a minute or two to secure a internet/wifi connection while some of the delay in connection is the internet carrier but some of the problem is the app doesnt always use the phones hotspot nor the data

I wouldn't have my small business without Square Payments Processing!

2018-05-21

Pros

trust the security of the credit card processing.

Cons

I sometimes have to go in and schedule separate invoices for the same client because I can't schedule on, say, the 20th of the month with payment due on the 30th.

Square is simple to integrate and works as advertised.

2018-04-05

Pros

The user interface is great, and I've had no problems with any transactions.

Cons

The only nitpick regarding square is maybe the pricing. It would be nice if the rates or the per transaction fee were lower, but I feel they are competitive.

Reliable payment processing is guaranteed with Square.

2018-04-01

Pros

Their fees are fair and consistent. The mobile payment processing is a breeze and the chip reader works every time.

Cons

Like I even need customer Service for major issues which rarely occur, but it is difficult to speak to someone when you need them most. Access to live Support would be a great peace of mind addition.

Very easy to use with little issues.

2018-02-14

Pros

Super easy to use, never a funding issue, low and consistent merchant service costs, customizable for your products or services.

Cons

The one time we contacted customer service, they were less than friendly or helpful. Fortunately, it's only been once that we've needed to call. On an iPad, the chip reader stops working if an update is needed.

We chose square over our local banking options due to the familiarity customers have with square.

2018-02-01

Easy to use solution for our business.

Pros

Square provides a great way to process credit card sales for our non-profit community theater.

Cons

It does require the purchase of a chip reader if you intend to take chip transactions. The payment processing is speedy and seemless.

Best CC solution for small business!

2017-12-11

Pros

Can set up monthly recurring payments with stored cards.

Cons

I guess the only gripe I can come up with is to use an iPad it works best with a square stand. I found it for the same price at best buy to get some rewards. The software is flawless in my eyes.
