Features & Functionality


4.5 / 5


  • "I like how easy it is to create a great looking online storefront. Clean and simple design options, easy to add/delete items, keep track of inventory, and an endless list of benefits."

  • "Other Points of Sales software is very clunky when it comes to a mobile application. Because of the versatility and ease of use, we do recommend it for small businesses."

Value for Money


4.5 / 5


  • "Square for retail is easy to use and relatively competitive in pricing. Back when I had inventory, Square made it easy to manage that."

  • "Its nice to have, but other companies have POS for om hand sales as well. Their prices are a bit too much for a small business such as myself."


4.2 / 5


  • "Good value for the money. Reports are nice and easy to read and filter."

  • "Overal it was good, I think for a small business that's trying to save on expenses and monthly costs - it's a viable option."
