Quick & easy!

I’ve used various card machines including contracted machines and payg. Square has won the payg hands down for my business. As a small business I can not afford to wait 7 days for money to be deposited, square is in there the next day at no extra cost, of course if you need transactions to be deposited same day then the option of paying extra % is there, great!
The software itself is excellent, I originally purchased the reader & dock only to find out you cannot purchase the stand separately, so I’ve ended up re-purchasing the whole kit - square you need to give the option of the stand to be purchased separately (my only gripe)!

Do not waste your time using square. I initially signed up was allowed to take payment. In which I received a few days later. I then attempted to take another customer payment which declined first time. My customer sent me new details which again square accepted. A day later received an email asking to submit documents. And until I do so my money will be held. Why was this process introduced for the sign up page, instead you have me use the app take payment then hold it. I then submitted the docs and rang customer service I explained that this process is all wrong. And told her I would leave. Then next day I received an email saying your accounts been deactivated as they won’t be able to assist my business needs. What business needs do I have that is difficult? All you do is provide means for customers to make paymet. I then called again and spoke to by a really rude customer service agent. I expressed how this is delaying me paying my staff all they said was we will release the funds to you in 90 DAYS. I asked them why criteria do you need for you to be accepted my square she then said I can’t discuss that as it’s security issue. So I then asked if one of my documents was not sufficient why not let me re upload it. She said I can’t do anything else for you and hanged up the phone mid convo. How disgusting I’m a young male with a start up company and currently employ 40 plus people but yet your service can’t help me.

Used a few times now 👍

I have used this reader for a few months now and have to say it’s not failed once. I use it as a mobile caterer and the reader connects every time and the battery life is fantastic.

Only one thing I would like added to the app is the option for cash back. We go to many festivals and offering cash back would be a big advantage and would increase sales which in turn increases Squares revenue.

Would recommend to all.
