I have a high volume business that's I use square for. I like this POS system because it is user-friendly and very easy to teach my staff. My dislike is the cost/ transAction. Yes, the equipment is free when you start, but the percentage charge per transaction is much higher than other companies so it's not the cheapest option.

Pros

Ease of use, electronic receipts

Cons

High processing fees

Advice to Others

If your business grows is under a year, this would be a good system for you. If you're grossing over that and the cost will add up.

I love my Square app and card reader. I use it all the time. It's incredibly convenient. There are many great uses, too. If you're in business and your job takes you away from a traditional office, you can use Square to take payment on site. Take payments, get signatures, email or text receipts. It's also great in social settings. You never have to get stuck paying the dinner bill again because you're friends didn't bring cash. Money is almost always in my account by the next business day.

The SquareRegister POS provides a very simple, plug and go solution for setting up and using a cash register. It is very straightforward in setting up inventory, items, and employees. As a fast-paced, men's barber shop, we need sales transactions to be quick and easy, and SquareRegister POS delivers! Since management is off-site, we rely on excellent Dashboard reporting to keep us informed for remote management. The Employee Management modules to allow us to easily track sales by the employee (barber) for payroll purposes. The transparency of real-time credit card fees is another key component to running a small, growing business with no surprises!

Pros

We like the real-time look into the day's activity. With the Employee management module, it allows us to easily determine if we are over/under staffed at any point in our day. Being able to track the sales by year/month/week/day, we can more confidently create future staffing plans. The Sales Trend reporting provides a comparison to the previous day/week/month/year. Having the detail reporting from the Dashboard takes away the perceived notion of the health of my business and replaces it with factual data.

Cons

1. There is no 'Void' sale, only a 'Refund', so cashier errors are not accounted for. The sales that are 'refunded' show in my Gross Sales.
2. To track Sales per Employee (with Employee Management), each Employee has to log on and bring up his/her own sale. If 2 or more employees should get credit for the items one customer buys, then each sale/employee must be rung up separately (logging on) and the customer's card swiped (read) multiple times.

As a small business we chose not to take credit or debit cards. However, in today's "card" carrying society, very often customers don't have a way of paying. We chose Square over having monthly fees and a physical terminal. It's quick, easy and has a lot of customers thanking us for the convenience it provides!

I use this product 6 days a week for our small business. Its always available. I did not rate the customer service, the reason is because I have never needed them. I can only imagine, its like their product and would be excellent.

Pros

I like the ease of use. It always works. The value to me is not available anywhere else. I have convinced many to try this POS.

Cons

The only negative for me, is not being able to enter sales through my pc and further to print the receipts on my shop printer.

Advice to Others

Check around, no bank pos, no internet pos other than Square can offer their rate, their inventory tracking, their ease of use. None, you check and then come back and get Square register.

I think square has Jedi mind tricks because months ago when I initially went to their website. The following week I received square POS promo in the mail to check them out. At the time didn't need it but recently did business for a booth and we used the square on the go POS. A family member wanted me to help them at an exhibition so we decided to utilize square for the whole weekend. It was quick easy and pretty fast even the setup was fairly simple. I definitely recommend them if you are a merchant that has to conduct business at exhibitions or trade shows!

Square is easy to install, and super compact. It doesn't require a lot of prep-work or know-how, and does as is needed.

Likes Least

The POS system lacks detail and efficiency in reporting and inventory capabilities

Recommendations

I think it all depends on how big retail sales factor into your business needs. I think Square is more for one-off uses as opposed to a big conglomerate

Ease of use, Customization capabilities - with icons for your most used products, ability to import your customer details and one set charge for all card types. We upgraded from a basic card swipe device and small printed receipt with higher charges. Much faster than our previous process and much more professional in appearance and use.

Likes Least

Certain reports are not available unless you pay an additional monthly charge for the "Directory Pro" product. Example: I would like to look at what a particular customer purchased for the year. This level of detail is available with the "Directory Pro" product. This is not obvious until you have a login. I was not aware of this but to be fair - I did not think of it till after we had integrated the product into our business. It already works better for us than what we had been using.

Recommendations

Square offers a one month free trial. If you have a tablet and a sales desk - definitely give it a try. It took me several hours to set up the icons for our most sold products - but wow does it ever make the process flow.
