    Works great for chip cards

    This Square reader works great for cards with a chip. The mag stripe reader was flimsy, difficult to keep it stable when swiping cards, had to retry swipes a number of times before it would work, and in some cases it never worked. A combined swipe and chip reader would be much better.....like the ones you get from banks.

    I bought the chip & swipe "Square" Card reader to take credit card payments. It is compact and easy to use and will really help my business by being able to take credit card payments on the go.

    The square reader is advertised as promised....3 different payment methods all in a tiny footprint. Traditional swipe, chip and contactless payments pretty much covers it all.

    This has a chip reader, tap to pay ability and comes with a separate square to swipe. This is a great investment if you have your own business.

    This product is great and very easy to use. My only complaint would be that the swipe reader it comes with must be plugged into a headphone jack, which isn't an option (without an adapter) for newer iPhones. I would up also purchasing the swipe reader with a lightning connection as well.

    The Bluetooth chip reader worked flawlessly at a major show, allowing us accept be the latest ( and most secure) chip cards with ease. The swipe reader allowed us to accommodate those whose banks or credit unions who still had not upgraded to the chip cards. Note that it's not actually necessary to buy the swipe reader separately, as one is included with the purchase of the chip reader.

    I use this when visiting clients. It is so fast to swipe the credit card through my Square and then they select either email or text receipt. And it's done in 15 seconds. I've used my Square for 3 years and never had any problems, I highly recommend it.

    Fees

    We love the fact you can accept payment from anywhere quickly. However, the fees are excessive. Also It costs more to hand key a card on Square then it does to swipe it. I'm saying I would recommend it, but be warned about credit card fees.

    I bought 4 of these Square Readers for my company because we have employees that sell product at events. They were previously forced to only deal in cash which cost us potential sales and increases the risk of cash being lost or stolen. The square readers can swipe, accept Apple Pay or Android Pay, and even read chips so the transactions are secure and less likely to result in subsequent chargebacks. The reporting is great because it shows all sales by each card reader - and you can enter All sales, not just credit card transactions. Highly recommend this product.

    I run a small vendor table about twice a year. Square gives me a point of sale system which is easy to use as well as inventory tracking. The Square contactless and chip reader allows me to be more modern than many brick and mortar stores taking chip cards, tap to pay as well as traditional swipe. Square associates e-mail addresses with CC numbers so that once someone has entered their information for a receipt, they can always get an e-mail receipt without having to re-enter information. I sometimes have to wake it up and there's no battery level indicator, but I'm managing despite those things.
