      Phenominal Product - Amazed

      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!

      Great reader and App, changed our business

      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.

      Works great on iPhone 8+ with dongle

      So I wasn’t sure if this would work for me . I have a iPhone 8+ which doesn’t have a headphone jack . The iPhone 8 comes with lighting headphones with a dongle to connect older headphones to lighting. So I used that dongle and it works . Set up is easy and quick and the small cut square takes is not bad . I used this for a garage sale and it helped me sell big ticket items . The app works well too and it only takes a few days to get transactions. The only issue is swiping with credit card is not straight forward, my customers didn’t know which way worked . It should have some icon or direction pointing the way . We figured it all out and it was all good . I definitely would recommend this to everyone who does garage sales or business digitally .

      I needed something to help me with sales at an event. The Square was recommended and I found it at the local Best Buy. I purchased it for about $8, but with the perk of a $10 deposit from Square to my bank account. The installation was simple and it worked at my event on my Android phone. I could not, however, get it to work on my HP tablet. I don't know why, but I think it had to do with HP and proprietary rights to their apps, because I could not download the app. I'm not sure why and was in too big of a hurry to explore with HP. As it turned out I only needed the square for two transactions. I was grateful to have it and was not bothered by the percentage they earned on my sales. I'm hoping that for my next event I find a way to get it to work on my HP device.

      Best Way To Accept Payment

      I am the PTO President for my daughters elementary school. Last year we had numerous family members asking if we accepted credit/debit card payments so they were able to purchase our shirts. I had to turn away hundreds of dollars because we only had the capability to accept cash or check. After reviewing the details on the Square Device, I knew it would be the perfect fit for us. We used it, for the first time, at our kindergarten through 2nd grade open house event last week and it worked miracles! We were able to sell over $50 in Just credit card sales! That may not seem like a lot to some, but we are the most poverty stricken school in our district, so being able to sell over $25 at one of our events, is a big deal for us. I highly recommend the Square device. It is so easy to use.

      The Square - Card Reader - White, was purchased in an emergency situation as my old square unit was discovered to be old, outdated, and no longer worked for processing cards with the Square service. Best Buy was able to supply me with this newly updated model for a cheap price so I didn't have to wait 4-6 weeks for Square to send me the free one. PROS - Quick setup - Easy usage - Updated to current Square technology requirements CONS - Does not accept RFID Chips, Cards must still have Magnetic Strip to work - Not compatible with iPhone 7 or above unless you have an adapter due to the 3.5mm headphone jack requirement, but works well with the adapter - Not free like when ordering from Square directly, however it is a quick and cheap alternative if you need it faster than waiting for shipping from Square

      Working well and helps with sales

      I really did not want to have to take credit cards and mess with card readers or a processing company. But after reading reviews and talking to a few people that were using square, I decided to give it a try. The company reimbursed me for the purchase of the reader and even offered to waive fees for the first $1000 so I really had nothing to lose. The first day I had multiple sales that may not have happened if I didn't except credit cards. Excepting the cards was very easy to do on my smart phone and the company made the deposits of the funds in about 24 hours. So far I'm very pleased that I purchased and signed up for Square.

      Great product for quick transactions

      Square is great for small stands and is really easy to setup and use. You just go through the app on your phone and you can setup a username and password. You can also input menu items so you don't have to type in the price for each transaction. I found it easier to have multiple card readers going to help with efficiency. The problems with it are it doesn't always read on the first try so you have to swipe multiple times and it requires a checking account. The multiple swipes won't charge customer's cards, but it just gets customers concerned about that. As far as the checking account thing goes, I hate giving my account number and I don't understand why the only way to get my money is through direct deposit on a checking account. All in all it is a great cheap alternative to merchant services and traditional card machines.
