Straight to the point, good all round

Superb, no issues or anything that would make me want to use a contending product.

Pros

Very simple to use, very clear, lots of features available provided in an easy to configure way

Cons

Payments to the account could be made a bit faster, especially as some vendors now offer much faster payment times

Square ease of use

Overall Square has been one of my favorite POS systems to use - its easy to use, transactions are quick and they take all forms of payment.

Pros

Square POS is by far one of the easiest forms of registers out there for use with both cash and credit card transactions. Transaction time is also very quick which allows customers to move though lines fast and with ease.

Cons

Sometimes finding the "correct" report for accounting/transaction purposes is difficult. There are many reports to choose from and at times it gets overwhelming to find the report that will give you the information needed for your accounting data transfer

Really good solution, payments and backoffice

The overall experience is very good. I manage moe than 8 locations with bothe in person and online sales easily from the same dashboard.
Things just work.

Pros

That it is an all-in-one solution. It covers your whole business (with some caveats) but if you have a retails store it's all that you need.
For restaurants they're missing some features, but working on them.

Cons

That you can clearly tell it's built for retail. If you're a restaurant user some things don't work out.
Also the online store, they need to put that thing on a diet.

Square Point of Sale Review

Pros

It is very simple and easy software that anyone is able to use.

Cons

The most annoying thing about it is to change the way the checkout looks, you must use an ipad and there is not a computer friendly option.
