Great for entrepreneurs

It is very easy to use and convenient for my customers

Pros

The ease of use for this product is amazing. I love how you can make a sale with the virtual terminal by either swiping a card or sending an invoice.

Cons

The fees per use can be cumbersome. However all pay portals have some sort of fee to use their product.

Small little POS at your finger tips

Its what we needed in a pinch to get sales orders working on the field at events. It worked well for conferences and venues.

Pros

It was easy to setup and start using when you need it. You connect it to your phone and use it as a normal POS you would in a store

Cons

Support isn't always easy to get a hold of and it wouldn't integrate it with our system. This is more for small business use and not for tracking and reporting on analytics.

Great app for small business with HIGH processing fees

Pros

I like that I can do manual entry, take payments over the phone, and process almost any type of credit card a client has.

Cons

The fees are so high. Absolutely ridiculous when other companies offer funds transfer and payment options for a fraction of the service fee. I've had to start adding service fees to client bills who choose to pay with Square.

Alternatives Considered

Apple Pay and Google Pay

I liked the option that Square could work for almost anyone.

Proud to be a Square

Pros

What I found to be the most beneficial of aspects of this software and accessories is the fact that it incorporates everything essential to successfully implementing a source of income for your business that is highly adaptable to various situations. Essentially, a POS that is direct banking as well, and at it's best, in my opinion.

Cons

Initially, and for the general entirety, I have been completely satisfied with all aspects of this software, it has become an asset and even more so a staple in regards to my business functioning at an efficient level.
