Square Makes Running My Business so Simple

5 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I am a big fan of any software that does a lot...and man Square Point of Sale does A LOT!!! It has seriously made running my business so much easier, and even kind of fun. I love how much I can customize it, how detailed I can get with it, but also how easy it is to create invoices and things on the fly. I can use it across multiple devices, making it useful ANYWHERE.

Pros:

I like how much I can customize it; that I can use it across all my devices; I can use it anywhere; it creates records for me, helps with taxes, saves client info. All that stuff that can fall between the cracks.

Cons:

I'll admit, I haven't come across anything that is a major flaw so far. Any complaint I have is the sort of thing I would encounter with any online POS and/or accounting software - things like the tediousness of entering product/service items to be saved and other repetitive tasks like that.

Simple and easy

5 last month New

Pros:

I like that this is so straight forward and easy. It’s very simple to use and they don’t try to hide a bunch of fees. So clean and simple!

Cons:

The only thing that’s sometimes a little frustrating is running reports, it won’t download as pdf. So I have to save it as an image.

Terrible service

1 2 months ago New

Comments: It’s been the worst experience ever. Would not recommend to anyone. It’s put me in a pinch trying to wait for the payment processing and ended with refunding the money because I was sick of waiting on customer service a week later and the refund will be another week and then processing payment with another company service qb. Payed for material and employees and all said and done this will be a 3-4 week process sense starting the job. As a small business this can make or break you.

Pros:

Nothing.. they hold onto your money if it’s a large amount for over 7 days. Their customer service sucks. It’s expensive for card processing.

Cons:

Everything.. I just signed up for quick books and it’s a way better platform and you can do bank transfers or card payments right from the invoice. Quickbooks is worth every dollar for there monthly service. It saves you money in the long run.

Best Choice, Hands Down

5 2 months ago

Comments: My experience has been really really good. This is an ideal product, designed simply to make life and business easier. And that's exactly what it does.

Pros:

The simple design and ease of use is my favorite! This made taking electronic payment so easy and effortless. Especially during a time where everyone was already stressed enough, contactless payments meant one less stress on everybody.

Cons:

I don't have anything negative to say about this product! It delivers, and for a fraction of what the competitors are charging. What's there not to like?

Super Simple and Works Great

5 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I've had a great experience. No matter where I am, I can make a sale. This option has truly changed how I sell and get paid. My life is a lot easier and I am making more money just by using Square.

Pros:

I had my account and POS device set up in minutes. Literally only took like 10-15 minutes total and I could accept payments anywhere.

Cons:

I do feel the customer service could be better. Maybe more direct customer service options to make it easier and more effective.
