A godsend for the restaurant industry.

Our customer used to sell physical gift cards through Costco and saw tens of thousands of dollars of cashflow and business through that channel. Covid 19 killed his physical gift card business. Not only did Square come to the rescue, it made online purchase a snap with their web portal and email fulfillment.

We were able to generate tens of thousands of dollars in gift card sales and put the whole process into play within minutes. It was literally a money machine during the Christmas Season.

Pros

We were able to implement a digital gift card program for our restaurant clients in minutes. We don't use Square for regular in-person credit card processing at all we simply set up the online digital gift cards in the weeks leading up to Christmas and generated tens of thousands of dollars in cash-flow for the client and guaranteed business in the weeks that would follow our Covid-19 holiday lockdown.

It is so fast and easy every consumer facing company should do it. Your customer gets their digital gift card immediately and the business gets cash in about 48 hours. They make it super-simple to track the cards and redeem outside of your POS and conventional payment processing system.

It doesn't matter who you use for your payment processing. It is simple and fast to add Square just for their digital gift cards.

Cons

Wish I had discovered how easy implementing a gift card program was sooner. There are no Cons as far as I'm concerned. It doesn't matter what POS or payment processor you use now. There is room to add Square for gift cards to any operation.

The percentage they charge for payment processing is twice what the mainstream processors charge, but there is ZERO cost associated with selling or redeeming the gift card so for many companies it works out to be much cheaper than other gift card programs.

About My Square Online Store

My overall experience has been adventurous being able too create an online store is not easy and for Square too provide that service with many helpful links and great customer service.

Pros

What I most like about this software is that I am able too include a sales link for my products on my Facebook Business page so that customers can click on the link and be taken too the product too purchase right away.

Cons

At this time I do not have anything to say on this matter.

Easy to use

It works for what I need it for. I just wish it was easier to get free fees.

Pros

I like that when you sign up, you receive a FREE card reader. This is really helpful to start out with.

Cons

Occasionally I have connectivity issues. If you don't have a chip reader, sometimes it's difficult because a lot of cards are starting to be chip only.

Too glitchy

Leaving after a month- completely ruined our holiday sales with all the issues customers were having with the site.

Pros

Fairly easy to set-up and sometimes has live phone supoort

Cons

Glitchy product- Horrible support. Ironically the free version is less glitchy- the more you try to use the extra features the more problems there are. Every time we would call we are told there is a known issue and there is nothing we can do about it. Website would just randomly change settings and we would have to start over. Horrible reporting that is completely unusable.
