Incredibly easy to use - office electronics

Bought for an art show, the app was so easy to download and use. It was fast and efficient, and customers liked the accessibility of the point of sale. I was even able to email receipts and invoices. It was such a rescue.

Pros
  • Beautiful packaging
Cons
  • No instructions

Get the app first! in POS devices

works great but I didn't know you can get a free reader by downloading the app! Pooh. I think it's ok because it wasn't very expensive and now I have a sticker that says I can accept credit card payments ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Pros
  • dope
Cons
  • unreliable

Works great even with iPhone 7+ headphone jack

Works great I have an iPhone 7 plus so I had to use my little extra headphone jack (it's so annoying btw but it's on Apple not Square lol) , but everything worked fine. I swiped my own card to verify when setting up Square, it read my card perfectly, the transaction went smoothly.

Pros
  • Weight
Cons
  • Some difficulties

The little square is a game changer!

This is a lifesaver! Sure you can get a card reader from the company for free but I wanted two of these and couldn't find a better deal! I bought it for business reasons, but also used it at a flea market and it worked great (and made sales that wouldn't happen otherwise). Highly recommended!

Pros
  • Great for me
Cons
  • Ugly packaging

Never worked: Credit card reader

I really want to love this product as it has made my craft fairs so much easier but I have to say I don't really like the card reader itself. The app works great but the card reader never worked. Personally, I'd recommend just spending a little more money on a chip reader because, unlike a magnetic stripe reader, the chip reader works great and is really easy to use.

Pros
  • Few competitors
Cons
  • Very expensive

Read the fine print

This card reader isn't bad; However, it has some disadvantages. What kills me is that every time you want to transfer money to your bank they charge a small transfer fee and you have to spend an extra amount of money to speed up the money transfer process. Most people will see the low price and assume everything is going smoothly until you realize that giving a company a tool made for honest intentions is not a business, it's such a stupid business move (to put it to put it bluntly).

Pros
  • Free for educational purposes
Cons
  • Good

Convenient and easy to use

Both Square and the phone app are easy to use. I just used Square at an event and it allowed me to accept credit cards to make sales I would have otherwise missed. I like that it fits in my purse. Since I always carry a few copies of my book with me, I might use it one day. They make pouches for this, but I use the plastic container that comes with the extra gum (it's perfect: thin and strong).

Pros
  • Pleasant to use
Cons
  • Long delivery time

I was disappointed with the support system

I didn't like the fact that I was rejected and when I contacted the support team they couldn't give me a straight answer. I understand people get rejected, but at least I would find a reason why I. I've been told that for security reasons they can't figure out why, so I'm wondering what type of system they have? Why can't they just tell me why I got rejected? My dad did the same as me and got accepted so I don't understand why I got rejected and the support really doesn't help at all.

Pros
  • Elegant design
Cons
  • Boring packaging
