"Fast, efficient and affordable payment processing!"

What do you like best?

The ease of use, costs, and the ability to have money instantly deposited and available for use by using a linked debit card which contribute to the overall satisfaction with the Square payment processing system. The interface is easy and intuitive to use and offers a great many options for convenience and tracking your customer base as well as finances

What do you dislike?

I can't for the life of me figure out any negative aspects for this payment processing system--it just works and works great. Could be less fees when using the Instant transfer options. My only real concern would be security when using my mobile device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For a reliable and competitive payment processing system with no hassles, no hidden fees, and great customer service, Square cannot be beat! It has tools for tracking expenses as well as income and allows for other useful undertakings, such as email collections and mailings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Taking payments from customers who do not carry or wish to use cash. This allows payments to be made instantly on site using my phone or other device as well as using with our company mainframe to track collections, spending, customer database and even customer emails.

"Easy, seamless POS and payment processing in one"

What do you like best?

I love that Square is so easy to use that I can hand my POS to a friend who is helping with my business for a day, and not have to go through an entire training session for them to be able to assist me with sales. Deposit speed is awesome, and inventory options are plenty.

What do you dislike?

There are a few subtle nuances in item creation and inventory modifier sets that are less than intuitive but honestly I have very few complaints about Square.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely use the Square POS and item grid/inventory systems to make your life easier! Every business I've used Square with has benefitted from these aspects..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was previously using a system that did not provide good customer support, reliable hardware, or easy transfers to outside banks. Square fixed all of that for me and normally I don't even need support because it just works.

"A new way to process your online market."

What do you like best?

It is incredible the options for the methods of payment that this application has, its systems allows you to create a market online without worrying about having a buying problem in your section since it provides all the necessary tools as well as the Square Point for have payments by cards and the security to enter any personal data of yours is of very good quality.

What do you dislike?

Its configuration is somewhat arduous since it has many options and information to enter, the Square Point is somewhat limited and only accepts a card limit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a market, it would be very useful to have a record in the square system and to promote any visit to your store.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Take my market to the most modern networks and online market, commercialize in different areas without worrying about the transaction of my clients.

"Square Payment Processing"

What do you like best?

It provides an easy way to accept payment via credit cards online and in person. This way I can send an invoice out to a client and have them pay online.

What do you dislike?

The fees are not that great. Although it is only three percent plus extra depending on the payment type it still cuts into the gross of each business gross profit. If there was a way to make these fees lower that would be of great service to small business owners like myself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for an easy way to process payments quickly and effectively you have found your software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly convenient payment options to receive money in a variety of ways. Using the swipe option in person is pretty cool.

"Broaden your business by accepting Credit card payments"

What do you like best?

Easy and simple to use. Anybody at our company can process the transaction using simply an iPad or an iPhone

What do you dislike?

At times it is a bit complex to calculate the fees applied to each transaction ahead of the payment. Fees are different if the card is swiped in person or if the transaction is processed remotely. I wish this could be easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't have yet a method to process credit card payments, go for it. You have nothing to lose and it really can help your business to grow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we did not use square, the only way for our customers to purchase was to pay everything in advance. I think square gave us the opportunity to broaden our business and gain more customers.

"The best option in it's space"

What do you like best?

Having used multiple mobile POS payment processing systems, the simplicity and ease of use for square still hasn't been beat. The thing that isn't often praised but much criticized when it is bad is reliability, and this system is reliable. The customer support is also something you won't beat with competing options. Lastly, the software on both mobile and desktop is a seamless experience, cutting training needs.

What do you dislike?

The hardware itself for Square can occasionally act up, and the design of the card readers for mobile phones allow annoying, unhindered spin.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't lose the hardware and have to get a new one ;)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The integration of rewards programs and receipt management is far and away better with square than before.

"Process a better way to make payments and receive payments."

What do you like best?

Nice, reliable and efficient payment method through this platform, it is easy to integrate your sales systems as an online stock, you can pay from any mobile device and make easy and secure transactions between the same platform, your notification and registration tray is amazing.

What do you dislike?

When you acquire the method of sales systems through payments for this platform the commission charged for monthly sales is somewhat expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very reliable, easy to configure, attractive invoice presentation and effective in all payments, is very good service that you can raise for your stock on the internet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I greatly facilitate the payments of my services using this platform, incredibly expanded the way to promote and facilitate payment methods.

"Cool but Inconvenient at Times"

What do you like best?

I'm a fan of Square Cash. It 's my first choice over PayPal and Venmo. I'm a fan of a huge fan of the fact that it takes the money out of your account the second you send it. Just my personal preference for a payment app to do that.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a fan of having receiving money only on business days. Especially if people always wait until Friday to pay you. There's also sometimes this annoying thing, that I have yet to fix, where if you send or receive money, it says "pending". Leading you to believe that there's some issue. And when you look up what to do, you're told that the person receiving the money has to do something. I know that Square cash does request now, but every time it does that it appears to be a separate issue from the request thing. And I still don't know what to do when this happens. That's when I proceed to use PayPal or Venmo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sending and receiving payments.

"Square is readily available, but the underlying fees and require are bogus"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it was to get going with the company. Overall, support and legit customer service was average. I loved that I didn't need much to get going, and the square reader was free too. I loved that I didn't have to pay a huge cost for the phone attached card scanner with options to upgrade for very reasonable prices.

What do you dislike?

The underlying fees were out of control, and when it came to the swype for swype cost, out right outrageous. Along side of the over the top fees and inability to use amex unless I paid another additional tax per swype that's higher than the rest, I was also forced to pay an additional fee for this. Outside of the non sense high prices, I found it unfair and completely rude that they didn't mention out right that you would have to link an account that was subject for denial and or complete rejection. This part is where I began unsatisfied with this company. Sure, they will take your cash and process it but getting it back? No simple. The slow turn around on the cash pending was out of the question. I shouldn't have to wait a week to see my funds hit an account that they later rejected and held funds from. This was enough for me to drop the processing all together.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use a moble processing server to set my company a part from most, the convenience factor is high and the need for credit card processing is essential with my company.

"So easy"

What do you like best?

I have been using Square for years! I love it, It is so simple to scan credit cards from phone or ipad on the spot. No more sending bills for artwork or freelance jobs. And, it keeps everything organized. I also like knowing how much I have made from my artwork each month, It helps to keep things separate now and not rely on looking up transactions via several payment sites.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the little swipe scanner can be finicky, and once in a while if I am offline there are a few issues. But, it seems to be easy to void and start over.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's simple. Eliminates using paper or having to hand write receipts..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping all my payments in one place. It has allowed me to do direct transfer to a separate business account no longer mixing all my income in one place.

"Great for small businesses"

What do you like best?

I love that I can finally go to a farmers market without having to get cash out first. I also love that it will always email me my receipt.

What do you dislike?

The fee that it charges makes it not feesable for my company. As a user, the only issue I have is the awful feeling you have when you don't leave a tip.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you aren't using Square, then you are definitely overpaying for your payment services. Square makes it so easy to process and send money when needed. The soda shop I was working at definitely didn't use it to its full potential (running inventory reports and customer stats, etc), but it still helped us so much!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been able to support more small businesses because of Square. From new restaurants to door-to-door tamales salesmen, I am able to keep my money electronic.

"Ideal Payment Processing Solution For Small Business Owner"

What do you like best?

Fast and easy it was to set up a Square account. /you can do your inventory thru web and simply select the products that customers are purchasing from your store or market stand shelves for ease of use. Tax is configured on a separate screen prior to usage. When entering in an amount to charge, the square app calculates the tax automatically.

What do you dislike?

Accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express, however, if your card is issued by a foreign bank it won't work. There is also no alert when the transaction failed. Also it's bad for businesses with more than $17,647 in monthly transactions

Recommendations to others considering the product

Businesses that are just starting out, E-commerce credit card processing

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Square is the best payment processing solution for small business. The rates are minimal and there's no month to month charge.

"Easy to use, Secure, and Reliable"

What do you like best?

I love that we can take payments virtually anywhere using my phone or iPads with no monthly fees, no minimums and no statement fees.

What do you dislike?

Square can be quite expensive. Transaction fees tend to range between 2.75% and 3.5% with an additional 15-cent surcharge per transaction, making Square one of the most expensive payment processing systems for credit cards out there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall, easy to use, but you may want to check other companies that offer similar services with lower fees depending on the amount you want to spend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are our fundraising sales have increased due to the ability to take credit cards. Prior to having square we were only able to take cash payments.

"Great POS! Easy to use"

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use and user friendly interface. We are able to sell products in our cafe and update it at anytime. We can even have photos of each item so there’s no questions! Cannot day enough good about the benefits of square

What do you dislike?

My only issue with square would be the inventory side. It’s didficult to set up the exact amounts when dealing with care style orders. For example a bottle of syrup has about 24 oz. but it’s hard to break the bottle into 24 parts. We have had to come up with alternative ways to inventory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It’s quite simple. There are great features and you’re going to see a good ROI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to sell and keep great records on what is popular and what is not. It’s also a system that requires very little training to have someone accept payments. We’ve seen growth in sales and less waste or confusion about where product is going.

"Best Tool for Small Businesses!"

What do you like best?

I just really enjoy how easy it is to be able to select payments where ever as long as you have a mobile device to use the strip reader so I can get payment s from a client anywhere!

What do you dislike?

I haven't encountered anything I dislike squares functions and easy accessibility just makes the payment processes easier to keep track off.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Square is great for credit card processing to tracking sales, manage your business easily with the Square App! I highly recommend this product for any business .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Ideal Transaction Setup"

What do you like best?

This is the best payment setup for small business, loved by coffee shops, the essential minimalist store purchase interface. I remember when Square first came out and somehow got hidden behind PayPal, Apple Pay, Samsung, and a few others that don't offer near the streamlined process or the substantial format that's fair on fees and super easy to use. If you are trying to decide between Square and PayPal or some other competitor, do your homework and make sure you know what you need for your business - I would bet 98% of all users should end up with Square.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't really offer much for businesses to utilize their own rewards/perks setup thru the app or payments with customers. My local restaurants and shops have setup their own rewards system thru phone number but it is really awkward and lacks appeal. Square should setup shop for their own integrated rewards system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is most likely what you want! Do your research between other options but be aware Square is a fantastic platform used all over the nation because it works very well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Streamlining payments, transactions, offering customers the intuitive and smart platform ideal for everyday business without the hassle of complicated setup, high fees, awkward privacy issues, or PayPal/Apple Pay limits.

"Excellent for small business!"

What do you like best?

The square payment processing is so much better than other POS. There is no monthly fee, and the fee to use is competitive.

What do you dislike?

The dongle is easily misplaced if you are not organized. It may be helpful if there was another form, like blue tooth that could take payment. I am sure this would not be secure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IF you are mobile business, this is the POS for you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem that nearly everyone is paying with a card these days to receive points, miles, or perks. It is so nice not having to always take a check. You can also rest assured the payment wont bounce.

"Fast, Intuitive, Excellent reporting, low fees"

What do you like best?

It WORKS and it's EASY. I've tried other swipe processors and I ran into problems but no issues with Square. Great admin dashboard and very easy to sign up.

What do you dislike?

We've used their app, phone swipe at events and for online purchases and ran into no problems. Haven't used ALL the features they offer yet but what we've used we can't complain about.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Setting up a tent with products at local events requires a way for people to pay who don't have cash. Square is the best solution for us. Email the receipt and very happy customers.

"Portable way of processing payments!"

What do you like best?

Square has several devices that you can use. Ranging from a full POS system to a chip that can connect to your phone. Each way is an awesome way to collect payments!

What do you dislike?

The fees on this service it a little bit outraged. They can def afford to cut some of the cost. I am sure they know this because they lost a lot of customers this way!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Square is great but there are way more products out there that can achieve the same thing but for far less. I would definitely do the research and compare this service to other services. It just take patients and time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mobility payment processor. I have the ability to collect payment from anywhere and anytime. I love this convenience so much!

"Easy to use and great for a small business"

What do you like best?

I used square to accept payments from my client when I traveled to them for a demo. Very easy to use and no real learning curve. As long as you have the correct app set up you should be ready to go.

What do you dislike?

The square is a little inconvenient at times if you forget to take it out but that's about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for all business types but for those small businesses that want something reasonably priced and easy to start integrating immediately

"For Every Entrepeneur "

What do you like best?

Having the responsibility of facilitating programs in a variety of environments, Square Payments Processing makes receiving payments possible! Square Payments is intuitive, there's zero learning curve and the brand is recognizable- one that customers trust!

What do you dislike?

At times, the square can have trouble recognizing a card so you will have to manually enter the number.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Square Payments Processing is second to none. The ease of use and the efficiency of the product itself is truly a game-changer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The square is very easy to use and teach, so I don't physically need to be at all of my events- I can use interns to receive payments, and customers don't need to worry about paying beforehand. It's a pleasure to know that there are no extra fees!

What do you like best?

Square let’s you sell items to consumers, and use debit and credit cards no matter where you are. As long as you have an internet connection, you can make a sale.

What do you dislike?

There’s not much that I dislike about using square. It’s a great tool for our company to use while out in the field, trying to make sales.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Square let’s us make sales, and get paid while we are doing work in the field, and we have the accessibility to get paid at somebody’s house.

"a simple and effective method of payment"

What do you like best?

The quick and easy way to set up a Square account is easy, once you set up several service options in the application, simply click on a button to load the pre-set payment options

What do you dislike?

higher fees are paid to store customer cards on the other hand The emails that Square sends to customers were also less confidential, as they included the name of my company in the message.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One positive aspect of my colleagues who make use of it is that the customer service is excellent, attention should be paid to the disconnection of the data cable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For occasional payments if you do not want to store an archived customer card, since the rates are competitive for this type of payment.

"Square Payment Review"

What do you like best?

Great for e-commerce and small businesses. Offers competitive pricing compared to Stripe and PayPal. Plus, no monthly fees!

What do you dislike?

Seems it is best for smaller companies and I may run into larger issues as my company grows. I am also concerned about the security of the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider the long term goals of your company. It may be worth shelling out a little more for something you can keep in the long run. But still great even if you are just starting out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Serving as a POS system and offering payroll processing, I am able to spend much more time on the service I provide and managing my employees. This is crucial for my company!

"Really easy to use and carry around"

What do you like best?

Great that you can just bring it around the store and attach an iPhone to it. Pretty easy to use and understand, really easy to connect the credit card payments processor to it and fixes a lot of POS issues I had before.

What do you dislike?

A little hard to figure out how to use - basically have to teach yourself how to connect it and conduct payments

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really cuts down on frustrating old terminals in retail and paper receipts

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having to buy terminals from random companies, expensive processing terminals that break often, cutting down on costs, being able to more accurately track revenue and receipts and also cutting down on paper in the store

More free features would be a major plus.

I wish the fee was a little less. I have used other tools that aren't quite as mobile, but the fees were substantially less. then Square.

"Easy Peasy"

What do you like best?

I really like that you can tailor the payment methods any way you want. Also, it links to other software that allows for seamless bookkeeping.

What do you dislike?

Like any technology it can get a bit glitchy but it’s nothing a quick reboot won’t fix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows any form of payment in a quick and easy format. I can accept payment from pretty much any electronic device. A huge benefit I realize is the use of less paper because receipts can be emailed or texted.

"Hassle free plug and play payment processing system"

What do you like best?

Square is an excellent choice for someone who wants to hook up a payment system without any hassles, in no time. The onboarding process is really simple, and there are no maintenance/monthly fees. You can easily estimate what you are supposed to pay because of their flat rate pricing.

What do you dislike?

Pricing, that really is my main concern with Square. There are other players which do offer similar services at more economical rates.

"Aesthetically pleasing & easy to use "

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use on a tablet. Being able to save customers emails with their names adds a personable experience. You can also save customers orders & the ease of adding a tip is great.

With some cards, you’ll have to slide multiple times. On an occasion payments through Apple Pay aren’t as responsive.
