"Perfect Sales App for Trade Show"

What do you like best?

Square is a great app, easy to install and use during a trade show. You can add any products you want and make different discounts. When you place an order, cash out products, you can use it easily for credit card payment. You can easily see the different invoices, transactions you made daily, weekly, monthly etc.. It is also great to make different reports regarding the sales, items sold, customers payments etc...

What do you dislike?

This app only works with a WiFi connection. Without that, you can still use it and charge different credit card but you may take the risk that the credit card is invalid, and have declined credit card and payments. You need a fast WiFi connection to use without any problems. Sometimes, it could be kinda slow..

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this sales app if you need an easy app to make different credit card payments for any shows, event , b2b or b2c. You can transfer all products or services you need and add any discounts you wish related to any specials.

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

With Square Point of Sale, you can charge all the different credit card and make different payments for any events, shows. You can easily add any products you wish and add different discounts if you offer different specials. It is simple to use, secure for valid credit card and avoid declined ones. You can after make some different reports and track all your sales and do same sales analysis..

"Very simple all in one point of sale software."

What do you like best?

Can use the all in one set up on an ipad available from them or make your own set up with an ipad.. Also can be run straight from your phone. Can be used on the go and as a locked down set up. Low fees and instant deposits are available. It really is perfect for the solo business owner. Would be perfect for one location restraunts, retail stores, farmers markets, artist booths, taxi cabs, even delivery places taking payment upon delivery.

What do you dislike?

I could see needing some more advanced options in a more complicated business. Also some of the more advanced software programs charge higher fees but can do more advanced things like payroll and taxes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

perfect for small businesses such as one location stores, restaurants, farmers market booths, taxi cabs, etc

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

Easy all in one solution to bookeeping and the taking of credit cards and cash for small businesses in a much cheaper starting point that some of the legacy options.

What Retail POS solution do you use?

"Square Point of Sale "

What do you like best?

I like how I can customize it to best suit my business & the needs! It allows for modifications and adaptations that can be used when I need them and how I need them.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to go back, after a sale has been completed, and add a customer name to that sale. It would be very convenient to do when it was forgotten to be added prior to completion of sale.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a convenient and fairly affordable device that is reliable, this is a great payment solution to consider!

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

We are able to take more payments and added a new payment method! This has provided convenience to our clients! Now we can use our tablet for a point of sale at events and still use our point of sale via the virtual terminal on our desktop/laptop computer!

"Perfect for the Little Guys"

What do you like best?

I love that I have a free swiper and that I can charge cards. As a small time author, this is a HUGE step forward for my business and brand; I don't have to ask for Cash.

What do you dislike?

Lack of features and options for buyers. Also, there seems to be a lack of extra functionality for the sellers (such as setting it up to apply coupons when someone buys Item A and Item B Only)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn how to really use all the tools at your disposal. Make sure you set up an inventory for counting purposes and make sure you keep it all organized.

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

I needed to sell books, and cash is a rarity these days. Having a tiny reader is a godsend.

"Best payment processor for traveling entreprenuer"

What do you like best?

It is so quick and easy to use! If you have your phone with you (and you always do), and WiFi or cell signal, you can take credit card payments.

What do you dislike?

If I had to pick something I don’t like, it would be the fees involved. It really adds up and eats into the profit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fast payment, easy to use, great for on-the-go or traveling businesses.

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

Only brick and mortar stores used to have the technology to run credit cards. If you were a small business conducting sales outside of a storefront, you would have to tell people, “sorry, I can’t take cards.” Being able to take the number one form of payment, whoever and wherever you are, has immensely helped small businesses.

"An Integrated POS System that allow our business to be open 24/7"

What do you like best?

Integrates with our online scheduler and booking system, Acuity. I like there new invoice deposit feature. Customers can save their card for future payments and share feedback on their transaction.

What do you dislike?

I wish they would allow us to run more than one loyalty program at one time. Clients can dispute transactions and if their bank does not agree with you, they will not provide you for a service rendered. For example we had a customer come to our business in 2017. He booked our venue to celebrate their child's birthday. We ordered pizza and cupcakes from an outside vendor, provided out of pocket purchases (party goods) and paid staff to work his party. After the party he complained and ended up getting a free party. we were left with the full $800 bill, this just didn't seem fair at all, in anyway shape or form.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you heard about Square from someone else, they do offer a referral credit. Refer them if they inadvertently referred you. I saw it at another business and didn't realize they had a referral code to share with me, for when I signed up. The cashier could have easily told me more about it for the company's benefit.

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

Because it integrates with our scheduling system, Acuity - we can accept payments 24/7.

"Great Point of Sale System "

What do you like best?

I love the user friendly application, and the set up of the dashboard. Square makes our business run a lot smoother. The amount of information I can find, including customer trends,Sales trends, customer information, and inventory tracking makes our sales team way more efficient.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to be able to add items to a larger category and then add them in like subcategories. If you run a business that has ice cream in one part and then something like candy in another part you can only set up your dashboard for square to show the items in the same layout on the grid on each iPad

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

We’ve really been able to get inventory tracking and sales trends figure it out through this.These features have been beneficial because we don’t have as much product waste

"Great Point of Sale System"

What do you like best?

The ease of all the tools, I also like how I can also use the PoS on any device, so even If I am traveling I can still make a sale from the use of my phone.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the basic online store would allow you to import shipping rates or at least be able to make weight based or order based shipping. Currently I can opt to have a Flat-Rate Shipping charge per order, or have a shipping charge on each product. So if someone makes a small order, its still quite a charge, but if they make a big order I feel like I am losing on shipping costs.

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

I use it as an online store as well as in a retail location. This allows us to collect sales online.

"Great aid for small businesses"

What do you like best?

Square is a fast, easy way to use credit cards in a mobile environment, such as artists' markets, and easily transfers customer money to my bank account. Plus, it's pretty widely used, so customers trust it.

What do you dislike?

You get the simple scanner for free, but it's pretty flimsy, so you really want to buy one of the nicer ones.

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

As an artist, I attend a lot of festivals and markets, and increasingly, people don't have cash or checks available. Square has solved that problem; it's fast and easy, and that appeals to customers.

"Works great for accepting credit cards"

What do you like best?

I have one vendor who pays me by a new credit card per job every time so square has a customisable menu where I click on that vendor an the amount to charge is automatically entered.

What do you dislike?

When inputting credit cards manually square charges a higher percentage rate then a swipe transaction.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check the transaction percentage rate and any other fees and choose the best rate with no fees.

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

Being able to take payment by cash, debit or credit card.

"Square POS from a Small Business Owner."

What do you like best?

I like that it is readily accessible anywhere in the major stores if I need another reader. I like the ease of use in setting up the Inventory and Sales entries. I like the fact that its compact and plugs into your cellphone or tablet and the apps dont take up alot of space. Square also sends really cool stuff to put up to show that you are a accepted credit card merchant.

What do you dislike?

Fee is really, REALLY high at 2.9% per swipe. Could stand to be a little bit lower to compete with other providers. The one thing other that I dont like is there is no strap to keep a hold of it. It is VERY easy to lose if your using just the credit card reader.

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

Im not really having any problems with this, the benefit I have realized is that if there is a payment that needs to be made on the road, that I can have it nearby and I can immediately take a payment if needed.

"Business owner"

What do you like best?

Square POS is easy to use on many different devices. The reports are clear and easy to comprehend.

What do you dislike?

On a mobile device when you need to delete a payment this can be difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Square POS has been a very positive experience for me. I recommend it as it is user friendly, and consistently developing without leaving you feeling like you have to upgrade to the next best model.

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

Having multiple employees who work separate hours using POS gives me the opportunity to have my business bring in income at all hours, and my employees can take payment whenever they need to, not being tied to any one location or docking device.

"Self Employeed Stylist"

What do you like best?

Everything! The fees are low, it offers instant deposit, and I like not having to worry about receipts or any papers for that matter. With previous systems I had to remember to hit settlement, or wait for the papers to print out, etc and that was a hassle.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far! I haven't had any issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

your first square is free, they offer loans after so long, and the customer service is great. 10/10 would recommend!

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

Again, it's nice not having to print out reports or hit settlement at the end of the day. Faster than other systems and more user friendly.

"My use of square."

What do you like best?

The price. I got a free credit card reader and the app was a free download.

What do you dislike?

That it doesn’t have its own website abilities. You have to download other assisting apps for that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your starting up, this is a wonderful way to start it will compliment your business with style and ease.

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

To be able to make sales anywhere I’m at.

"I used Square POS at my retail job and it did the bare minimum."

What do you like best?

The visual interface of Square POS was nice. When you were checking a customer out you could easily see the product and select it.

What do you dislike?

As the store I worked at started to sell a wider variety of products it was difficult to locate these within Square. I had to try to search key words and sometimes had a lot of trouble locating the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is great if you don't have a lot of products in your store.

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

I could usually quickly check out my customers and didn't have to bother with barcodes and sku's.

"Great software that makes running your business a breeze."

What do you like best?

Very nice interface that is simple for anyone to use. Deposits are quick and convenient.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike, this software is very robust and easy to use. However, the online store could be more customizable

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use and integrate. Quick deposits and simple invoicing.

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

Automatically creates a directory of customers during each sale. Invoicing is integrated and as easy as plugging in a few questions.

"Ease of Use and Instant Profits"

What do you like best?

The Square was very much easy to use when conducting transactions at Pike Place Market. It made the cash based system we had much easier while I was working for one of the local farms.

What do you dislike?

What I disliked about the Squar system is that there is not just a specific connection for Apple Devices like an iPhone. I had to work with using a dongle which I can hardly ever find.

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

The business problems that this is solving is that it’s allowed for a larger customer market by getting people who don’t usually carry cash.

"Square Review"

What do you like best?

Square works great for small businesses like me. Its convenient and mobile that I can use the POS anywhere at any time.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, the only this I would change with Square are their % fees that they take per transaction. Besides that, Square is amazing!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great Point of Sales System! Would recommend to any small business.

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

Square solved my problems of not having to use a bulky cash register. I can easily do point of sales and transaction with ease.

"User friendly "

What do you like best?

Looking at it the first time, it is pretty easy to use, the friendly user interface accompanied by titles and pictures for each square shaped button on the POS.

What do you dislike?

Nothing.. SQUARE POS is a really great product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fees are reasonable but looking over time, they seem crazy.

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

Squares fees are a little hefty over time. Customers ask for a receipt and I constantly have to tell them they have to have it emailed or messaged to them from the POS.

"not to square to use square"

What do you like best?

I love being able to accept payments anywhere that I have internet. I can accept payments in the office or out on location.

What do you dislike?

I disliked that I had to spend money on a chip reader, the one included should have had that option. With out the cheap reader you leave yourself open to chargebacks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool for anyone that is accepting payments. there is a credit card fee for accepting payments but its a flat rate. With a regular system the amount you pay varies depending on what kind of reward credit card the customer is using.

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

the ability to accept payments anywhere you have internet.

I dont understand why all vendors use this! I love how simple it is, and all the options it gives me such as tipping, and organzing. Ive never felt more organized in our sales.

What do you dislike?

it is pricey. I would think theres a way to create a cheaper system and would like to see it happen.

"User Friendly!"

What do you like best?

I like that Square POS makes it feel like you are in control of your business. Utilizing Square allows for payment anytime and anywhere you are. As a consumer, I also feel like I trust Square and I know there isn't any funny business with my cash as a spender.

What do you dislike?

I have no issues with the square app. Any issues typically arise from the vendor.

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

Square allows for ease of checkout when there is not a physical POS system in place. Square serves the same purpose without clumsy installation and is essentially fool-proof.

"Simply Effective "

What do you like best?

Square PoS is simple & user friendly. Using this layout on an iPad and adding different types of items, sales, discounts, & so on is quick & easy.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that sticks out that I don't like- the percentage of sales that are taken are lower than most banks and other services, but combined with the price of operation, it can seem a bit excessive. The chip reader is the most frequent accessory to malfunction.

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

Sales, refunds, giftcards, tracking revenue.
