Pros: I love how easy it is to create an invoice in my web browser OR in my smartphone app. I also love the fact that customer/vendors can now opt to save client payment information securely on their systems to make payments faster and easier. I definitely get paid faster, on average, by using Square Invoices.

Cons: Payments made using their Invoices system are exempt from the instant deposit feature, according to their user terms. So if a client pays their bill by way of an invoice, I can't use the instant deposit feature - I have to wait until the next deposit cycle. I would also really like some better and further customization on invoice creation.

Overall: Faster and easier payments from customers.

Pros: Its easy to download and use no matter where you are. It extends the capabilities and allows you to sell no matter where you are.

Cons: There was a weird bug when I used where the items were not actually showing up but for the most part it was great.

Overall: Allowed us to pull off sales at an event without a hitch! So great to be able to offer sales immediately.

Pros: With this tool, you can keep track of what you have earned vs what you are waiting to get paid for/outstanding invoices. Helps you keep track of how much you are bringing up by different time frames.

Overall: Was able to keep track of my invoices with ease, just the cost was more than what I get with my package with Wix.

Overall a great software that is extremely user friendly.

Pros: What I like most is how simple and straight forward the user face is to use for myself as a business owner to send invoices and for my customers to pay with.

Cons: What I like least about this software is its reporting. It is very minimal and not accurate. It is nearly impossible to a report for specific days and get correct totals. It should be as easy as "how much money did we make yesterday" but Square Invoicing does not have the feature.

Pros: I've used square invoices to bill subtenants. It offers the ability to set up auto pay which has been helpful.

Cons: I wish it offered more features like auto reminders on unpaid invoices and wish it was a little more user friendly when setting up the recurring payment option.

Overall: Was able to automatically charge my subtenant's cc for his monthly rent charge.

Comments: One of my main reasons to begin using Square at my company was to be able to send invoices that can be paid online by my customers. Square Invoices makes that so easy¿especially now if the customer has a recurring invoice, they can save their card to use next time. I can't recommend it highly enough, it is just so easy to use, customize, send out and above all, extremely easy for customers to pay and receive a receipt automatically.

So far, the best I've found

Pros: I can customize how my invoices look and how they are worded.

Cons: No complaints so far now.

Overall: I really appreciate Square having invoices that are customizable and attractive to the customers. They just recently added a few new features to the invoices that I have wanted for almost 2 years, so I am thrilled to see the nice changes made to make it even better.

Recommendations to other buyers: Easy to use and looks great. Customers can pay easily. It's a win/win.

Pros: Easy to use. Can you either on desktop or mobile. Quick, fast and functionality is stellar.

Cons: No way to 'pre-schedule' invoices to go out automatically on a certain date. No way to schedule recurring invoices. Wish the system automatically numbered your invoices and allowed you to put them into pre-designed categories.

Wish there were more options for designs, but the current version is fine

Overall: These are great. Wish there were a few more options, but for ease of use, value, and functionality, these are fantastic.

Comments: I've been using Square invoices since they launched. I run a product-based business and using the invoice feature at wholesale trade shows has been amazing! I use the program on my iPad so I can quickly scroll through products with a buyer and select the items for their order. Since a lot of wholesale orders are not paid upfront, I can send the invoice in an email to be paid at a later date. I can easily edit the orders after the show and send reminders as the due date approaches.
On the buyer's end, the process is really simple. They receive an email with the itemized order and your customized note. With a click on the "Pay" button, they can quickly enter their payment information and submit--no need to sign in or create an account.
I loved that the processing rate for invoices was the same as running a credit card in person, but unfortunately, the rate increased in fall 2016. Because of that change, I direct customers to place orders through my online store instead, but I still can't beat the ease of use in the busy trade show setting, so I will continue to use invoices for that.

I love it, it works great

Pros: It's very easy to use and functional. There are lots of other great tools we're not even using yet. Great reporting too.

Cons: I wish the charge for allowing a customer to save their credit card info wasn't so high.

Overall: We've tried several invoicing platforms and Square is really the easiest to use and implement. It remembers customer and their contact info and sends them simple and attractive invoices that are easy to pay. You can also schedule future invoices to go out automatically and that interface is easy and intuitive.

Overall: As a therapist with many young adult clients from out of state, Square invoicing allows me to bill my client's parents and keep track of payments with ease. My only complaint is the higher cost Square charges for invoices and card on file, but with the ease of use it is worth it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Auto-reminder for unpaid invoices could be a helpful option

Pros: Ease of use and organization.

Cons: - Doesn't allow me to delete erroneous / stopped recurring billings in the system, so every day I have to see them and can't get rid of them.
- I wish it had a "chasing" feature so if someone misses recurring payments, the system would automatically send reminders every X days until it is paid.

Overall: So far it does everything as advertised. Makes our recurring billing a breeze, as we had been waiting for this feature for the past 4 years and finally its HERE!!!!

Cons: Not always as flexible as I would like but it is getting better in that area too. Sometimes it is not obvious to the client that receives the emailed invoice template, where to click to enter credit card payments.

Overall: Square services have become the lifeline of my small business revenue stream. I've been using Square for over 4 years and it has evolved into a slick, easy-to-use and indispensable tool!

Pros: The ability to save customers, chose to send now or later, picking the due date those are all nice.

Cons: If I could add new items from the invoice page that would be extremely helpful! Also the mobile version of adding invoices from my phone is a pain and doing it from my iPad isn't easy either.

Overall: I love this feature. It makes my life so much easier! The cost of it is not to high but completely worth the money.

Pros: Love the online invoicing capabilities it has so far.
Love the phone app so far.

Cons: Relationship between app and online web access need major connection improvements.
Editing capabilities of the line item in invoice statement need to be editable.........

Overall: There are several features I need to make my business effort easier. I certainly need to spend less time with collecting money than I do making it.

Recommendations to other buyers: 1) Fix the issue when I want to edit a line in the invoice. Currently it will wipe out the entire line and I have to start over. Bad! Need to be able to edit current line item in invoice if I make a mistake. 2) I have invoices with a bad email address. Invoice is still pending. I want to be able to edit the email address even after it has been sent to a customer. If I edit it in the Library, it should update on the invoices that are not closed out. 3) Worst, worst, worst. Need this ASAP. When I invoice a customer and they show up with a credit Card in hand, I have no way of calling up their invoice and using that to charge their purchase. I need this badly. Currently I have to: a) look up their invoice total on my email. b) open app and type in value for purchase. c) open website on my laptop and mark item as paid by credit card. This should be a one step process, open app and look up customer invoice outstanding, selecting it and process the charge amount.

Nice add on and easy to use!

Pros: If you follow good business practices and keep good documentation Square will back you up in case of charge back attempts. Money is deposited into your checking account quickly.

Cons: Received notice that invoice rates will go up in September to the same rates charged by Paypal.

Overall: I have been using Square invoices to collect payments for my online jewelry business since they were made available. I find Square to be so dependable that I dropped my individual merchant account and Paypal, using Square exclusively.

Pros: Ease of use! Love that the invoicing allows you to set dates finances are due, the analytics are seamless, and it tracks customers emails for you allowing you the added bonus and ability to reach out to customers if you wish. Love this Software!

Cons: All credit information is keyed in by customer - resulting in higher fee's.

If you do find an error with the invoice, any changes are automatically emailed to the customer. I feel this could be annoying to customers receiving multiple unnecessary emails. There should be an option to prevent this from being automatically sent.

Overall: Square is invaluable to the operation of my business. Their invoicing system allows me to accept custom orders and delegate perfectly
