Phenominal Product - Amazed
Posted by: 4REs from: Old Bridge, NJ on
I'm stunned at how well this product works. First, they refund the $10 investment 24 hours after you purchase this product. It links directly to a bank account and allows you to charge credit cards with a reasonable fee (don't forget you are not paying anything for the account and there are no monthly fees).
The device itself is small enough to fit in a pocket and pull out when you need to run a card.
There is a bit of a trick to get it to swipe - you swipe and pull up at the last bit - almost 30 degrees - works everytime.
We are using this at a charity event - first time we are able to accept credit cards instead of checks/cash - people love it.
The receipt is either Emailed or TXT to the purcahser - they not only get a full receipt but a copy of their signature and a GPS location / Map. More than anyone would need - plus, if there is fraud, you'd know where the person was.
Can't say enough about this product, great job!

Not only is it amazing that the card reader is free after using a redemption code from square, but it is also incredibly convenient. It is a perfect size, I can easily take it off and put it in my pocket when not in use. Also, the app is incredibly easy and fun to use. People are always amazed when I process a transaction from my phone.

If I could give Square a negative...I would
Posted by: Lrc2424 from: Turlock, CA on
The reader is easy to use and seems ultra convenient...until you have a problem. Then you are screwed because you are on your own. There is no listed phone number for customer service and email response takes forever. I had a card repeatedly decline, but charged my customer's account every time. To resolve it, we had to have the customer's bank refuse the charges. Completely horrible.

Love this little gadget. It's easy to use and very fast to enter the information and swipe the card. Payment is made very promptly within a couple of business days, and there are no monthly charges --only the 2.75% fee. Made my on the go business much easier.

So easy to use
Posted by: wazher from: Texas on
This card reader is super easy to use. Just download the app off of android or App Store and fill out the requirements for Square Inc. Then plug and get swipping! Square Inc will refund the money you pay for the Square and then even send you a second free card reader for free!

Great reader and App, changed our business
Posted by: spqr05 from: Santa Monica, CA on
I purchased an iPad and square reader to replace my old wireless terminal for my mobile business. I wanted to use the iPad as it would be a multipurpose device and is state of the art. I loved everything it worked great for my mobile business, I loved that there was no monthly fee as I was not accepting too many credit card charges. If you pay $50 a month to take credit cards this has no monthly cost so it's great and easy to use, plus has more features.
Only draw back is we had to take the case off to use the card reader, this was fine until we dropped and broke the screen. We had the Best Buy warranty protection so this was not a problem. However, to solve this no one would help. Very poor customer service / lack their of.
To solve this we found a special cable called "CellPay audio extension cable otterbox compatible". If you have a case and the 3.5 male reader doesn't fit in the audio jack then this is the solution.

Great Stocking Stuffer
Posted by: Twinny from: Mesa, AZ on
This was a "stocking stuffer" gift for our Daughter for Christmas. She loves it and uses it regularly to receive customer payments by credit card when she's out of the office.

I love being able to take credit cards on the go! The money has always deposited correctly.
