Very Reliable

I have been using Square to accept payments for about 5 years. I have never had a problem. I have saved a ton of money that I used to pay to the credit card companies and the bank. I do mostly outdoor art shows and find this to very convenient. My money is the bank in two days but they do now have ways you can receive it immediately if you wish.

Square could not verify my identity

I tried countless times to get approved when signing up for Square but no matter what information I entered, ALL of which was correct, they said they were unable to verify my identity...... super frustrating, yet now the website has all my personal information... HMMMMMMM scam?

Don't use

It is a very unreliable system where the company can hold on your payment and not deposit it into your account. Please consider a reputable company to handle your payments.

great idea but square is awful

Cannot activate a square account. Tech support from square says too bad so sad. Only have one attempt to activate and if I didn;t fill in a spot that';s it. they can't reset.

Excellent The Only Way to Process CC

I've used one for years and now need a new one for location reasons. The fees are better compared to what pos percentages charge. and there is no commitment. Make sure you swipe the card on the proper side or it won't go through. The money is dropped into your account within 48 business hours and I love that. I've never had a problem and am sticking to it. You can even use the console on laptop and don't need a register. Excellent product.

Great Rate, and very good app support.

This product is amazing for anyone just starting out. With the 2.5% Collection rate its still better than some P.O.S Companies.

Works Great for Me

I have been using Square since January of 2013. I am still using the original reader that I received. I do have a couple of them, as I keep one in my mobile kit, and one in my office. It is fast, easy and convenient. I have also now included this for a non-profit I work with when fundraising at local fairs, trade shows and community booths at malls. Since introducing Square, my sales have increased by 40%. Funds are deposited within 3 business days. I recommend this product for the solopreneur and/or for small business. I have read another review on this site stating that it doesn't swipe properly...you can get another reader for free from Square, just ask.

Does Not Work Well

I have had three new Squares and none swipe the card properly. I have to do each transaction manually and the Square charges me a fortune! I think its a scam to get more money from you. These don't work!
