User Friendly Set Up

I actually completed my site, have it up and running and am making sales! It’s a huge accomplishment to have been able to get this done! Square made it easy to navigate and was there for me when I had questions. They did not ignore my issues and kept in touch until things were fixed.

PROS

This is the mist user friendly software I have found. I have tried others and given up. But I completed my website on Square!

CONS

I’d like more creative options. To be able to soften edges of photos, create different shaped photos. More fonts to choose from and colors. Ability to make sections smaller and move wording around in more of the free space.

Reason for choosing Square Online

I have used square for sales on my phone and found it a great interface. Once building my site all the others were difficult to navigate.

Reasons for switching to Square Online

I had a really hard time navigating Shopify. It was not user friendly and frustrated the heck out of me.

Has some great features, but also plenty of glitches

Overall, Square Online has improved a lot since we started using it at the end of 2019. We love the delivery and curbside pickup features. There are still improvements that could be made, like setting up a subscription program to encourage recurring orders. Most of the features are pretty basic (customer loyalty program, 'similar items', etc.) - we wish there was more ability to customize features so they better meet our needs.

PROS

Creating our website through Square Online was pretty easy, especially for someone without a background in web design. The inventory management features and integration with Square POS is great!

CONS

Just beware, there seem to be a lot of bugs with Square Online and getting ahold of customer service via phone is not easy. You have to jump through several hoops before they will give you a phone number to call. This can be very frustrating when the website is having an issue that needs immediate attention. Once you do get ahold of customer service, if your issue is not deemed 'high priority' it can take them weeks/months to fix it, if they ever do at all.

Reasons for switching to Square Online

We signed up for Square Online when Square became our payment processor.

Square Online from a Salon's Perspective: A Mixed Bag

PROS

Square Online has been a boon for our salon's transaction management and e-commerce. Its user-friendly interface allowed us to quickly adapt, facilitating smooth credit card payments for our customers. The platform's robust analytics have been key in overseeing profits and tax, offering clear insights that guide our business decisions. Additionally, the seamless integration with Square's ecosystem streamlines operations, from inventory management to customer payments, enhancing overall efficiency and the customer payment experience.

CONS

However, Square Online isn't without its drawbacks. Customization of the online store is somewhat limited, posing challenges for salons looking to create a unique online presence. While it performs well for basic e-commerce needs, those requiring deeper customization or unique branding might find it lacking.
