Pros: Work well overall and features are being added over time. System is stable and is fully configurable online and in app.

Cons: How the software is used can be obtuse at times. Often have to search online for how to configure a particular option. Once I know where it is it's "intuitive" but some configuration options are not where I'd expect to find them. Missing a number of esoteric features that other solutions include.

Overall: Sales tracking and credit card payments.

Very user friendly and easy to set up

Pros: Square POS is awesome because it is customizable. You can edit your products and discounts offered so easily. We have multiple locations and we can have individual sale screens set up according to the location, which makes this software amazing.

Cons: The only issue I have with Square POS is that you cannot access everything from the app. For certain tasks you need to return to a computer

Overall: Super easy for all of our team to learn and use. It also allows us to take credit cards when we normally would not be able to.

Comments: Charging customers is super easy. I paid for the card chip reader which I thought was a little expensive, but everything else so far has been easy sailing. Not the cheapest POS out there, but it suits our needs for mobile card processing with receipts and tracking.

Pros: Great process - easy to use software - extremely helpful

Overall: We hosted an adoption fundraising banquet to bring home our daughter. We used square readers and Square point of Sale so we could process credit cards. WOW! It was awesome. The fees weren't too bad and the card readers came quickly in the mail. They were easy to set up and use and we had no problems with them. The point of sale worked perfectly, we entered the amount of the sale on our tablets or phones and then processed the credit cards. The money went right into our adoption bank account, so it really was a seamless process. We would definitely use them again.

Comments: This has to be the most convenient way to accept payment for small businesses. I just started a small business and being able to accept credit cards without all the other hassles was a huge relief. The app is really easy to use and its free to register, and the money goes right into your account. Would definitely recommend this product.

Pros: Easy to use
Great for all businesses
Connects to Bluetooth recipt printers

Cons: Only works with Star printer not Epsom
No Square loyalty or Gift Cards yet
No offline more in Australia

Overall: Square is a great app with amazing features. It has a clean interface which helps a lot.

When introducing Square to one of my clients they loved how easy it was to use the app with adding items to adding and rearranging items on the POS screen. The easy to use interface was great for them as they are older and they don't really understand technology but now they are waiting tables with their iPhones. They love using the Square Referral program to get free processing with their friends which make the experience a lot better.

The cost of Square is also amazing with no monthly fees and the payment terminal. It's an amazing alternative to the banks.

The only draw back is they haven't released Square Loyalty and Square Gift Cards in Australia so it is lacking some of the most important things a business needs to grow but they promise me that we should see some progress by the end of 2017.

I love this app

Pros: Cost! Features!

Cons: Online Sales portal is a bit clunky and difficult to configure

Overall: This software is amazing for startups and small vendors that don't want a full-on contract like craft shows and contractors. Also great for one or two time events that you don't want to go through the whole contracting process for another payment processor.

Comments: I would say this system offers great features and they are always updating things on their system. everything you can set up from an iPad and is very quick to use. it is a bit pricey of a %, but if you look at it overall with all the things you get, it is not too bad.

Comments: My husband and I use square in our small retail store. We have used it for approximately 1.5 years now. It is a great all in one system - POS, inventory, sales tax management, etc. I would highly recommend to any small business owner.
