  • I love Square Point Of Sale!

    By Rozwita
    We are artists and have been doing art shows for over 40 years. We have used several different companies to process credit cards over the years and all of them have been complicated and expensive with a lot of paperwork and monthly fees until we discovered Square! It’s so easy with no monthly fees and you can do it anywhere! We recently opened a brick and mortar gallery in Inverness, Florida and bought their Point Of Sale system with iPad. I can keep track of inventory and sales and print reports. They allowed us to buy the register system with monthly payments and set up was super easy! I am about to add employees to it because they keep track of all that too! It also automatically adds sales tax if you want. Emails have always been a problem for us...keeping track and sending them. With Square, they keep track of customers and I can send out a campaign in a few minutes with their templates! I can see at a glance which emails worked and who responded. I can work with the 80/20 rule and concentrate on the 20% of customers that are repeat buyers and buy 80% of my products. We love it!
  • An excellent app and service

    To begin, we have been using Square for almost 4 years. Over that time we have integrated square more and more into our business. We are happy to report that this has been a great decision. The app is always being updated and keeps getting the features that we ask for. All you have to do is email or call and tell their customer service department what features you really want to see in the future. Then sure enough in a month or two the very thing you asked for is added in or has some beginning resemblance of what you had asked for. Do not be deterred by the negative reviews. Most of them are people who have decided that the review section for the app is the best wY to ask a question to the support staff. Or they may be engaged in some kind of shady business that is prohibited by square. On a different note their fees are strait forward and are completely out in the open compared to other merchant service companies. Overall I have been satisfied with the product and the support staff that make it keep working. Thanks square for making a POS that is easy and powerful. Cheers.
  • WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE

    By meggggggggaaaaannn
    My account was deactivated for something that I was wrongfully accused of doing. Someone filled a dispute saying they didn’t authorize the $200 transaction (2 months after the transaction) square TOOK $200 from my bank account and closed my account (that was only my second dispute in 2 years with them and the first dispute was settled in my favor). Here we are almost 4 months later after I started using another site for my business, and finally I get an email that says “the $200 dispute was decided in your favor” I thought... well finally. Makes sense because the idiot that did the dispute lives across country but claimed they never even made the payment (like how the heck could I make a payment on behalf of you when the invoice was sent to your email) but anyway they decided in my favor... YAY I GET MY $200 back! NOPE... WRONG... SORRY NOT TODAY... square then tells me I have to wait another minimum of 90- maximum of 180 days for the money to go back in my account!!! IM SOOO P*SSED OFF!!!! So there is literally $200 sitting in a square account no longer active and I just have to wait another 100+ days! Not happening. I contacted BBB and will be posting on every social media out there. They have the WORST customer service ever. If you even get the LEAST bit aggravated on a call with them, they just hang up.. DO NOT, I REPEAT DOOOOOONOOOOOOTTTT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE

    You deactivated my account saying it was suspicious activity on it the same day I opened it. I had ONE customer who swiped her card a couple times because square declined it for the whole amount..therfore she swiped for multiple small amounts to add up to the amount charged for the services. I believe this may have been the reason for the “suspicion alert” but no one called to speak with me on it, just instantly asked for documents that I don’t have on a “new” business! So because I didn’t have a tax ID, (however, I sent you guys my tax return instead, which obviously wasn’t good enough) you guys closed my acct, and either forced me to wait 120 days for my payment, or hassle my customer to refund her card and her bring me cash instead! It was very inconvenient to me and my customer, and it makes me look very unprofessional when I’m trying to build clientele! Because of this, I’m still yet to have received my payment Ive earned, from my services provided ! Also, you guys do not accept phone calls regarding issues like this, so instead of speaking directly to a live person to gain better understanding, it’s jusy a wait time hoping that you guys understand what actually happens, with results that are non negotiable, rather the service provider accepts it or not. Horrible experience and do not recommend this system to NOBODY!!!

    Granted I just started my own little business...but square allows me to be super mobile. I can go anywhere at any time and take payments! I get my money right away and I haven’t had any issues whatsoever. They included my own card reader for free, it arrived quickly and my customers just swipe and go! I love, love, love the ability to do this! I am horrible at maths and this includes all my sales tax, discounts, gift cards for my customers instantly..it allows me to be free of being stuck in one place. For anyone running a business that needs you to go to them I highly recommend Square Point of Sale! You can’t go wrong..and I’m grateful that they don’t charge a ton of money to do it. In my little business every cent counts and other services charge way more for smaller amounts charged. With Square I always know how much it’s going to be..no hidden fees or charges. Thank you Square! You’re an amazing tool for us that are just learning to be on our own and rockin it like a boss! Which I am, my own! I couldn’t do it without you.

    When I signed up for square the first thing it said to me was that i wouldn’t be able to accept payments? Which is the whole point of the app so why would this even be a thing? I tried everything on my own trying to figure why and how to fix this. I tried fixing my information thinking that i might have something in wrong. i thought that it might be my card swiper but when i logged in on another phone and tired there’s it was still the same problem. So finally i figure out how to contact square and talk to someone on the phone. The lady was so rude and couldn’t help me at all. I told her that I’d tried multiple times to edit my account information and she told me that since i had done that square won’t be able to fix the problem. To confirm i said so i won’t be able to ever use square and accept payments and she said that’s correct. I asked her if she could tell me why, or what i did that made my account do this and she couldn’t give me any explanation at all. When i got an email asking how my phone call was i told them this exact situation and said yes when it asked for a follow up call from someone else. It’s been three days and still no call. I won’t be using square ever again even if i could 🤣
  • Read the reviews!!!!!!

    I have had square for two years for my business. They are constantly changing their service and it gets messed up every time. Their instant deposit is a joke. For an extra 1% you can have instant deposit but what they don’t tell you is that you have to have at least a $1 in the account to have this happen then they say you will get the money deposited 2 working days later. Well that screwed my pay to my suppliers and employees. Thanks square for being greedy and a crap company! If you read the reviews, this company will only give you a link to talk to a human and/or have your issue resolved if you make a bad review. They have no customer service unless you complain. That is just bad business practices! This company just tries to hold your money as long as they can until you make a public complaint. Good thing they can’t pay to have bad complaints erased! It keeps the public informed! I’m sure now there will be a response after this review but that is just too little to late and you never see a change in a review afterwards. That should tell you something right there!

    I love this APP! I don't get the bad reviews. I have been using it for a year, and any minor problem I've had, they have addressed, promptly. Every update has only improved the APP. My money has been in my account within 24 hours, including Sunday sales. I used the traditional merchant account, for over 25 years, being gouged by outrageous fees. I tell everyone about Square. Don't be afraid to use it, it's awesome! And, as a side note, the little device is being sold by Radio Shack for $10. I guess this would be OK in an emergency. But why, when it's free from Square? Update: I’ve now used Square for over 5 years. I’ve only had good results. I’ve tried to switch to Flagship, which I though had better rates. Boy, was that a mistake. Their hidden fees added up fast. Fortunately, I didn’t deactivate Square during my trial run with Flagship. I’ll never stop using Square.
  • Simple

    The simplicity of square is what sells me. I have no previous use of any pos system and they seem very scary when purchasing one for he first time. I went to square as it seemed like a simple package deal no extra or hidden costs. Turns out it was the best move I’ve ever made for my business. Setting up the register for he first time was a breeze and adding items to ring up was as basic as it comes even I who’s never use one once before the square was rocking and rolling in minutes of setting it up. I don't do instant deposits so can’t comment on that side of square but I received all my CC transactions on time and never had any issues that weren’t resolved immediately. I also use square payroll that saves me time and fortune compare to Adp! User friendly and simple that’s what makes this work so well.

    I am a photographer at Middletown Photo Studio, Middletown NY. We have been using Square for 3 years. We have not had any problems getting the funds. We use Instant Deposit especially after weddings so we can pay our photographer assistants. You need about a minimum of $55 in transactions (enough to cover transaction fees) to use the Instant Deposit feature and you have a window between 3 minutes (time for transactions to sho up) and a couple of hours to use the instant deposit or else it will be too late and the funds will go into their regular system and you have to wait a day or two. If the transaction was for $35 then I can use my own credit card to add $20 to use the instant deposit and get it right back (after the 3 minutes it takes to show up).
