"Square for Retail has been amazing!!"

Comments: Square for Retail does just about everything I need to do to get paid more easily

Pros: Square for Retail is very simple to use, with very low fees to use it. There is no monthly charge, just pay a fee with each transaction. You can even sign up for a business card linked directly to your Square Account, so you don't have to complicate things with a transfer

Cons: There really isn't anything bad to say about Square for Retail. You can easily make invoices, recurring payments, even create links for donations to your company.

"Great Point of sale system"

Comments: Awesome and after using two other point of sale systems we have had no issues with the system going down. Very reliable.

Pros: Easy to use! Download the App and get setup. I just recently bought their Square Register and it is awesome. Customer service will help you get the right APP for your business.

Cons: Been using their credit card device for well over a year and have never had any issues. There isn’t one thing i don’t like.

"Easy solution for taking payment"

Comments: Square has made it so easy to run the retail side of my business along with saving me a ton of money on fees my old bank charged for credit card processing.

Pros: In the past I've used traditional forms of credit card accepting machines and software provided by my bank. Very expensive and cumbersome. Square has made accepting credit cards cost effective and very easy. The retail setup has made keeping inventory easy along with sorting out sales taxes. The advantage of using AP on phone when not in store is extremely helpful and again very easy to use.

Cons: No real cons, If I were to get picky I'd say initial set up takes a bit of time but nothing really worth complaining about.

"Less features than free version"

Pros: The new inventory management could have been a great feature. However, it eliminates the ability to enter inventory manually. It has the ability to process returns, however eliminates the ability to use other functions available in the free version.

Cons: The retail version has less features than the free version. Inventory can only be uploaded and can not be entered manually. The upload feature does include field matching, so it is a very, very laborious to convert from another system. Customer service is virtually non existent and not available on the weekends. We use have two square stands in our retail store. We love the current square system and were excited about the retail version and willing to pay the fee for both registers. We are looking for a more robust inventory system and POS and were excited about continuing with square. The new Square App does not come close to other POS systems . Very disappointing. I hope square improves this software before we select an alternative.

"Great for startup"

Comments: Works efficiently for us. Some features would be nice but good for what we. We’d

Pros: Very easy to use, straight forward, efficient

Cons: There are some things that could be streamlined better. Photos for different variations would be nice. It would be great if square would sync with websites like square space for inventory
