Pros: Square has been terrific. This and TouchBistro are very comparable. and I'm not sure which has the edge. They are both great.

Cons: There aren't any blatant negatives here. Sometimes the system goes a little slow but this also could be our Wifi's fault.

Pros: With Square it's easy and affordable for a small business to take credit cards and contactless forms of payment such as Apple and Google. As a healthcare provider, I can also take FSA and HSA cards. They're brilliant for having an offline mode of taking payments for when their servers or my wifi are down.

Cons: I honestly can't think of anything I don't like. I've never had an issue aside from their servers being down for part of a day, but I was still able to take payments in offline mode and was still paid on time.

Pros: Square is profoundly easy to use and has enabled my business transactions to flow fast and quickly. It also adds functionality that my clients want, like emailed receipts and easy refunds.

Cons: The ability to see certain reports, like daily deposits to a bank account, are lacking. And there is no option to do email invoices unless you're online.

Overall: Hands down the best credit card processing interface for small businesses.

Pros: I can use this with a handheld device or purchase the equipment and use for customers to scan their card or insert their cards that have chip readers. The payments are quick with little to no crashes in the system

Cons: I don't have any cons to report about this particular software due to never experiencing any problems since beginning to use this system over a year ago for my business

Overall: The biggest benefit I have for this system is the ease of use for patients and staff

Cons: The fees you pay when charging credit cards are quite high. I understand since everything else is free, that you pay more this way. But it is still a bit high.

Pros: It's simple to setup, simple to use and most importantly -- simple to train. It's so intuitive that the staff took to it in less than 5 minutes of training. Also, because their dedicated POS system "Square Register" is purpose built, we are able to use iphones and ipads to do tableside ordering which makes the workflow and throughput of the bar stools that much faster.

Cons: The reporting is not granular enough with time. You have to find out the hard way, when you want reporting from 9am on Monday through 2am on Tuesday, you have to run two separate reports. And to top it off, you have to learn the hard way that when you select an hour, it will show you everything through XX:59:59 of that hour, if you select the next hour, you're adding that hour's data to your report. They should offer software updates to improve reporting and maybe consider add-ons that are industry specific.

Overall: I can look at reporting from my house, most other POS systems don't allow for that. I can also add to and take from my inventory and item list, I don't have to be tied to my facility to make it work.

Pros: The ease of use is second to none. Also, the help docs really spoon-feed anything you may need to know.

Cons: I'm new to the software so It very well may exist but on the surface it didnt look like there was the ability to have multiple locations for the same store.

Overall: Gave us the ability to start selling in-person in next to no time at all.

Pros: Square does not require any monthly fees, charges a little over 2% for transactions, can deposit daily or within a business day, allows you to track reports and sales, is integrated with many apps like quickbooks and weebly, and has a great customer service team. You can use Square POS from your phone, tablet, or computer and it has the same interface across all platforms.

Cons: They have just recently fixed this. Previously Square appointments was not free with Square POS but it is now for individual users.

Pros: Square was our first software based program for our school auction when we only utilized iPads and paper/pencil for our check out. Square worked fairly well on the iPad. Attendees to the event appreciated the capability to sign and recieve a receipt immediately in their Email.

Cons: It was a little more difficult to enter items into the system though since there really wasn't an easy way to enter items in mass. We have since switched to a new software that takes Excel files and Google Sheets.

Cons: It has higher processing costs than most card systems out there. The attachment for swiping cards can also be hard to use if you don't have a super flat surface available.

Overall: It's made taking payments for an adult soccer league beyond easy and allows us to receive all payments before the league starts which is huge. .

Pros: The idea is the biggest pro about Square's Point of Sale System. It's an incredible idea to be able to plug a card reader into your phone and get paid. However, I have used this for a few years now and have had so many issues. They DO give the option, thankfully, to type in the card number manually, so the transactions will still work, it's just frustrating and often time-consuming.

Cons: The application is often finicky and will shut off sometimes in the middle of a transaction. The card reader has only worked for me a handful of times in the past three plus years I have used it. I can also hardly ever get a hold of the customer service representatives to get any type of help.

Pros: The Square was really easy and convenient to use. it provides many functions likes, it allowed you to create coupons, the reward programs and etc. Also, it's awesome that able to show the history of transactions.

Cons: what I like the least about the Square is that you have to manually apply the discount to an individual product. Also, the card reader machine always disconnect when transaction not make.

Overall: I think this software just brings business owner to another level of managing transactions and created convenience for the customers.

Pros: Easy to use - my favorite feature is the instant deposit option. For an additional 1% fee you can instantly deposit your transactions (over $50) into your bank account without waiting the normal time for it to clear and post to your account.

Cons: I wish it would allow instant deposit for balances under $50. I do not yet have a bluetooth card reader, and my plug in card reader will not fit in my iphone 6s without taking the case off of the phone. My case doesn't come off, so I end up paying a higher fee per transaction for manually entering the card information.

Overall: Ease of accepting credit card payments from clients anywhere, anytime.

Pros: It is user friendly, especially when the customer is waiting for you to process their sale. I also like that I can store standard invoices and I I must do is click on it and it is ready to go.

Cons: That I have to pay for it! I really do not have anything to say negative about it. It would be nice to use it without having a WiFi spot. It would be cool to just be able to tap a customers card without having to plug in the card reader.

Pros: I like the ability to track sales and collect customer information to reference at a later time and generate business leads. Having the FREE plug-in unit which is fee-free in the beginning for a period of time when using a referral code and having the ability to promote your referral code to continue to keep it fee-free for additional periods of time is wonderful for someone with a small business. The per transaction fee percentage is pretty comparable to other POS options as well. Being able to accept credit cards using a phone or tablet with the basic square plug-in reader is a game changer with direct sales where you don't have the luxury of brick-n-mortar conveniences that customers expect.

Cons: I haven't delved into all aspects of the capabilities of Square and haven't really found anything I don't like. I have used my phone as a mobile hotspot when WiFi wasn't available to continue the ability to use this product and avoid running on a data plan.

Pros: I am a freelance business, so whenever clients want to pay with credit card, I have Square as one my options. I also use an invoicing software that takes credit cards as well as an online website that run through a different system. Square was the first system I used when I first started out and it's a solid system, but I've found better alternatives throughout the years though I still use it occasionally. It's great for quick sales that don't require an invoice.

Pros
Quick POS capabilities
Ability to charge a "tax" that will essentially pass on credit card fees to the customer
Immediately emails receipt to customer so that I don't have to worry about it

Square is great for goods, while I would recommend Wave for services. It's more robust and you can pull lots of different reports related to accounting through Wave. The one thing about Square that does have Wave beat is the ability to add a "tax" that essentially passes on credit card processing fees to the customer. It's easy to do on Square, while in Wave I have to manually calculate the percentage and add it as another item.
Square also is portable and quick and you don't have to create an invoice for it if you don't need one, so that's also a plus.

Cons: No ability to create invoices for services.

I have the old Square attachment for my phone and it doesn't take the new chip cards. I have to purchase the new one in order to process those cards and that's kind of a nuisance.

Pros: Easy, and handy when you are on the go for your sales business. I helped my mom set hers up for he business, then realized I might need one myself. When I sell items of r business, or even if your friends need to pay you for something you bought, fastest way to get your money

Cons: My biggest concern was when business owners connected to outside wifi. With all the internet scams out there, I was concerned. In the end, there's not much to worry about with your credit card protection, etc.

Pros: We primarily use Square POS for events / fundraisers at the door when attendees may not have cash on hand. It has allowed us to take electronic payments, whereas before we could only accept cash or check. Of course there is a small fee, but every credit card transaction has a fee now. It accepts other cards besides the major ones like Visa and Mastercard, so that is nice too. The transactions are recorded in an easy to see list which makes viewing the history a breeze.

Cons: I usually get the card reader to read the card, but on the occasion that I have to type in the card number manually, it will charge a much higher transaction fee. The money takes a few days to transfer to your bank account as well.

Pros: The Square UI makes it extremely easy to manage products, customers, and payment, even on a mobile device. Categorizing items and prices is easy and intuitive and sending invoices is a quick and simple process. Being able to see basic transaction metrics at a glance takes guesswork out of your income stream.

Cons: I've found nearly no downsides to Square POS. The one confusing occurrence on my Android device is that pressing the Back button on my phone after sending an online invoice takes me back into editing the invoice instead of back to the home screen. Doing this without realizing has left me confused and unsure of whether I've sent invoices a time or two.

Pros: I helped a buddy of mine when he mixed his eCommerce business with a brick and mortar presence. When it came to a point of sale system, he was going to over-complicate matters. I sold him on Square, since we both see it everywhere, then he was off. His card reader arrived less than a week after signing up and he was literally accepting payments within minutes.

Cons: I have nothing to report. Once, the reader was malfunctioning but a replacement was sent out immediately upon connecting with support.

Very easy to set up and start using.

Pros: The web app and the phone app of this program work well for keeping client records, charging clients, and sending receipts. I run a small counseling practice and Square helps to manage the books for me!

Cons: The only con I would list is the cost of saving a CC in the system and charging it weekly. It's much cheaper to have clients bring the CC to session and charge live.

Pros: It's easy to use and Square (squareup.com) supports countries outside the USA unlike Intuit Payments. It charges fees which I can add in a surcharge to have our clients pay.

You can also grab a card scanner to charge anyone including yourself. If you need to grab some quick cash off of a credit card without paying for the higher cash-advance fees, you can do that. (Think about it for contingency funds, not for frivolous spending. It beats defaulting on loans if your business starts to flounder.)

Cons: I can't think of anything. I'm not sure if they show you how much you get after fees, as I use Square so seldomly, but that could be useful.

Overall: I especially like the card scanner.

Cons: It is a little pricey to set up as you have to buy an ipad and the Square setup. Also, the transaction rates are a tad high but totally worth it for the cool looking easy set up.

Cons: I guess the worst thing is the charges per transaction but that's the price to pay for the convenience i guess. Also if they one day get rid of the card reader and just have touch through your phone device would be the most ideal.

Pros: We started using the little white dongle initially and the Square system is familiar to customers. Signing on the device with their fingers has become second nature. Being a smaller merchant, having the familiar experience helps.

Cons: The cost is appropriate to smaller businesses however as your business grows there are several merchant service companies who can beat the price after fees. If you see yourself growing take a look at other options as the flat rate we were being offered was starting to feel expensive.

The ability to transfer money to your bank account the same day for a low fee is quite convenient. I appreciate the sales graphs and ease of use when at shows, we can quickly check it customers and send reciepts. It's great that inventory can also be updated to reflect recent sales through the Woocommerce integration feature.

Pros: I love that it is simple to use! I use it on my phone, so I click the app, insert my card reader, and I'm ready to go! I mostly have return customers, and I can set them up in the system, and then easily choose them when they make a purchase, and send them an electronic receipt. Or I can email them an invoice, and they can pay that way, and I don't even have to handle their card at all. It keeps track of sales, best-selling items, most frequent payment types, and probably a lot more I haven't learned yet!

Cons: There are so many features that I don't know how to use yet. It's a good thing to have so many features, but I feel like the tutorial left me wanting more. (I tend to learn better one-on-one with people than through a tutorial, so this may just be a downside to me)

Pros: So the first thing about this POS system is that it so user friendly and easy to use!
When I first though about using a POS system I was worried about having to learn about accounting and such, (Was cash only) and it was so straight forward as far as the fees .
There was no hard intimidating arithmetic involved in the process, that for whatever reason I expected....
So this has been great to help INCREASE sales because well most pepole these days dont carry cash, so vendors need to get with the times.
I also like it includes tipping, and sending them and email so that helps build your emailing list up too. so lots of pros here, Also to I find the Square system super pretty!

Cons: I really cant think of any cons, but the thing that I like the least as a consumer is the cost , LOL It would be nice if it was cheaper, maybe they can offer different plans for smaller or larger companies? Which they don't, so I suppose that can be a con for you.

Overall: It gave my business a really nice boost in revenue that i didn't realize i was loosing all along.

Pros: I like that I am able to add pictures of my items for easy visual location in the system. It is easy to add items and remove them.

Cons: The inventory system we use is not compatible with Square which makes it very hard to do inventory. When I called and asked for this issue to be resolved I was told it was being "worked on," but it never got resolved even a year later. The system can be slow to transition between tabs. Also, getting a hold of customer service can be difficult because you need a customer code and this can be hard to locate for other employees. We also had issues when Square has signed us out, and my staff could not use the device code to log back in, I had to give them my username and password to get signed back in.

Pros: It's so easy to use and access from multiple devices. I love that I can quickly find my sales reports and see how many transactions were made.

Cons: The only thing I dislike about this app is that the tax can be an exorbitant. Unfortunately the system takes a fairly high percentage out of the overall sales.

Pros: I like that it's simple and easy. I don't have to buy or rent system or pay monthly or annual fees. No hidden fees and report system makes it easier to track my incomes

Cons: I guess the fees are little high, but all the functions they have it's well worth it. I don't care for all the emails I get for marketing

Overall: I benefited gaining organization and POS system perfect for my small business

Great way to accept payments.

Pros: Very easy to use and small enough to put in your pocket. Just put the dongle on my phone, swipe the card and done. Great!

Cons: I wish that they offered the chip reader as the free option. Now a days just about every card has a chip reader. Still not bad even if you have to buy the add on.

Overall: Easy way to accept payment from clients at the job site.

Pros: Very easy to setup

Affordable processing

Good invoicing system

Very easy to customize

Simple

Pretty design makes it easy to use all day

Cons: TERRIBLE at handling shifts and tips, even if you use their payroll or timeclock add ons.

Payroll and timeclock addons are very expensive

Did I mention tip handling? If you don't have employee management on and you have multiple shift workers sharing a register and pooled tips it turns into a Custom Report nightmare.

Overall: Square POS enabled us to add a POS to replace our old cash register for the minimum expense. Much more affordable than competing products but also has far fewer features and poor support for tip handling.

Perfect for Small Businesses, Food Trucks, P2P sales!

Pros: It is the most user-friendly POS I've worked with. My mother in law, who is not tech savvy at all, had no issues working it to help check out customers at my wife's boutique.

Cons: The phone reader is a little fragile. I've never had one break, but it's often crossed my mind what I'd do in the event that it broke.

I use this for my direct sales business.

Cons: The application software on IOS could be more user friendly. It can be a challenge to navigate at first.

Pros: I loved how easy it was to set up a point-of-sale system that runs straight from my phone, allowing me to easily create custom automatic prices.

Cons: My main issue with Square point of sale is that if you try to enter in a price (without the automatic prices), you're likely going to pay more transaction fees.

Overall: Square Point of Sale has given me the confidence and ease of taking credit cards.

Pros: I love the simplicity of the system. Everything is right on an ipad and not only does it look simple and elegant, it functions that way too! It's super easy to set up all of your products, and customer's find it extremely easy to use and most of them are familiar with it as Square POS is all over the place!

Cons: Transaction fees are a bit pricey, and there is the initial purchase investment of the equipment. But overall, it's a great system.

Pros: I love that it is so simple, and that it can remember donors/customers for next time. I love that someone can walk up and say they want to donate, and hand me their card and then we're done. Very efficient for events, and user friendly with my iphone and ipad!

Overall: I would love for there to be an easier way to capture the donor's info so that I can receipt them from my CRM, not from Square so I can capture their info.

Pros: It's easy to use and keeps all the information about our customers in one place. Plus it's used all over and feels natural to use on both sides of the transaction.

Cons: If I had to say something negative, I guess I wish the information stored was more intuitive to browse and compile.

Overall: It's great for seeing what others think.

Pros: Squares software is so easy to use and very user friendly. It is low cost and nothing to get started. Their swipe readers are free and who can beat that? No contracts or annual fees, either!

Cons: The software for new technology is a bit high priced. They also need to make signage bigger for larger retail spaces

Overall: It has made credit card processing painless

Pros: I use Square as one of my main invoicing tools. They have a very user friendly back end and I can quickly manage money and invoices. They have a a lot of great features that I love within the invoicing system. They keep making it better, Any issues I have had their customer support was great in amending quickly

Cons: It is way too easy to accidentally signup for their add on features. I wish they would have a confirm button before they automatically enroll you into one of their add on they you accidentally click on.
