Hi, I am a 9 year old, currently reviewing on my iPad. I just have lots to say. One, I love Square for how simple it is. It lies literally just a few buttons and done! Second, I need money. I’ve opened countless house businesses, and I’ve literally made no money from them. Then when I opened this store, (without Square, of course.)my business was… let’s just say not great. Then I saw a Square ad on one of my tv’s. After that, I knew what I had to do. We went to Target, then we brought two readers: a contactless and chip, then it came with the other one, which was a mag stripe reader. We installed the app on my iPad, logged in, started it up, and tested it. Well what dy’a know, it worked! Then as I kept upgrading, liked how I got up and put my store on wheels, then I added more options like an Apple Genius Bar, then, you won’t believe this, but last time I checked, I made 30 dollars. 30. DOLLARS. *waits for about 10 seconds* then I started with the business and Square made it impossible to resist. My dad loves paying with his Apple Cash Card, His American Express Card, so that got him. And well… yeah. So I’m very, very grateful to have Square, and… I learned a lesson: when you don’t know, ask tv!

Great app for small business, okay for friend to friend

I absolutely love this app and I would recommend it to anyone who has a small business or more. It does a great job of organizing the transactions that take place throughout the business day, week, month, year, what have you, as well as helping to keep your books straight for tax purposes. The only thing I would complain about, and it is just due to my impatience, is the mere fact that the availability of funds from time of transaction to the time in which that money is accessible seems, to me, a little excessive. Now, yes. I understand that it’s electronic communication and banks have to talk with other banks to make sure the funds are transferred to the correct account from the correct account; so on and so forth but it just still seems to drag on. Especially when you’re in need of said funds immediately. This leads me to my last point with regard to the slow availability times. What is the point of an instant transfer if the money in which you will be transferring is tied up in limbo? Seems to me if it is only that easy to do an instant transfer in which you require a fee to use, why can we not access our incoming monies just as quickly considering a fee per transaction anyway. Well, there you have it. An honest review from a loyal and honest customer. Hope that it may help to improve the already seamless work flow SquareApp provides as well as to help a new comer decide whether this product is right for them!

Withholding my money for 90 days without explanation

I know many people that use square and like it my experience wasn’t so good I got everything all set up no problem, took my first payment than after that I couldn’t transfer my money. I received a notification saying that I had more setup that needed to be done so I went through the 11 step set up questions/ info that they asked for shortly after that I received an email said that my setup was submitted successfully and it would take 2 days to review. 4 hours later (on a Sunday) I received an email saying that my account was deactivated with no explanation why, so I called them the next day to try to figure out why and all they could tell me is they couldn’t support my business. I did some research to see if anyone else had this issue and apparently it fairly common. So I called again the next day to try to get it figured out and get my money that they are holding and got the run around I ended up talking with someone in account services and she couldn’t tell my why it was deactivated, they only thing she would say is I could refund the payment and ask for a check from the customer (who requested payment by credit card) she repeated herself 4 times and than hung up the phone on me while I was asking her a question. I would recommend that NOBODY use square due to this customer service or lack of service now I have to wait 90 days to get paid when I was depending on this money to continue doing business
