“Is Square Really Free for Small Businesses”
Square Stand. You can use the Square Stand to turn an iPad into a stationary POS system that sits on the counter or at the checkout area. Instead of using the Square Reader to swipe credit cards, the Square Stand has a built-in reader that you can swivel to face you or your customer during a transaction. If you want to go back to mobile, just detach the iPad from the stand and attach the Square Reader to process credit cards from anywhere. The Square Stand costs $169 per terminal.
I sure need to get paid for my serves. Plus they are holding over $1000 in her account with the exact same thing happening. I wished I would have read reviews before I did this. I now use Paypal and tell all 300 reps to please use them instead. As we add reps I will continue to recommend Paypal. With Paypal, I have had no problems.
HORRIBLE! NO CREDIT LIMIT! JOKE! I JUST SIGNED UP AND RAN THE FIRST TRANSACTION OF MORE THAN $7,000.00. I RECEIVED EMAIL THAT I WILL RECEIVE CREDIT FOR $2,002 ONLY, THE BALANCE IN 30 DAYS. HOW AM I TO RUN A BUSINESS LIKE THIS!
I own a small detail shop. The amount of back office work square does for me is insane. I can see on my dash board anytime anywhere. The easy interface is easy for my staff to check out customers. I have the full set up, swivel iPad, chip reader, receipt ticket terminal, cash register. It looks clean and functions great. The marketing aspect is a great feature, keeping track of customers info and able to create a custom campaign. I just ordered custom gift cards, seemed a little steep but for it to look custom with my company logo makes me stand apart from my competitors. I have higher clientele so you get what you put into your business. (meaning price is worth it). Have read bad reviews about account holds on funds…. I run over $40K a month and haven’t had any issues as of yet. I have taken 2 small loans for some major upgrades for my business, that was again very easy and worth the cash flow. I have nothing bad to say about my POS system yet. I have had it in operation for approx. 9 months so far.
I have recommended Square Up to several people because I have had great success it. It is frustrating, however, when I can’t get an internet connection and have to manually enter the card number later. That is not Square Up’s fault.
Theory 3 “Inception Mindfuck”: just as easy as I came up with these two theories I now got you to ponder techniques what other exploits there might be. Even if none of these are easy to pull of or maybe even impossible, there are still doubts that have been implanted into your opinion.
Well they are also 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS SINCE THEY TOOK MY $20,000.00 ILLEGALLY AND COMMITTED FRAUD BY HOLDING MY MONEY IN ONE OF THEIR INTERNAL ACCOUNTS WITHOUT SENDING IT TO MR. JUSTIN RIVAS AS IT STATES ON MY CREDIT CARD STATEMENT!

I am a jewelry designer and I receive most of my orders over the phone after people have seen my work. My business is based onnthe word of mouth. I am small and I can easily go two months without a sale but when I do have a sale the sale amount can run between $300 to over $2000. My work is handmade. I had usually processed orders of $300 without problems but all of a sudden when I had 2 transactions after a month selling nothing Square put a 45 day hold on the totality of my sale. They then asked me for information such as invoices and purchase order. I am a very small business. I processed the sales and all that matters to me is that the customer has the funds as most of them are referrals. Despite all the information provided to square they deactivated my account and put a 45 day hold on the funds. Impossible to reach them by phone. The only option I was given was to reimburse the customer but what do I do when the customer is already in possession of the merchandise? For a simple and small business like mine Square has been a disaster!
I don’t think that’s correct. I was looking at the square website before finding this comparison, and it looks like they do have a customer support number and They do offer a POS system with invoicing. I don’t know if they’re GOOD, but the website says they offer them.
Customer feedback management: Here’s a cool feature. It’s called Square Feedback. This system prompts customers to leave feedback about their experience not on social media, but directly to you. This allows you to manage your reputation, quickly identify problems, and prevent public complaints from surfacing on the web. You also get access to details like purchase history, previous feedback, and average spending, all at no extra charge. You can also issue refunds or coupons from Square Feedback.
Close your bank account which they can access .They took money from my account without calling me or emailing me. They did not return the money for 2 years. There are several lawsuits against them .My attorney advised me to stay away from them. Several State Attorneys are investigating them for illegal practices..
Square up.com does not permit that, there is no way to speak to a human and such a business or site is simply open to fraud. Companies should not be allowed to function w/o any way of verifying who they are. It should be illegal, hence I consider Squareup and illegal, risky business enterprise.
