“Square Cc Reader Reviews for Farmers Markets”
I have been using square for my small contracting business for about 4 years. Their deposit schedule was no problem and all was good. In late September 2014 I ran a customers credit card for $100. After a week with no deposit into my account, I contacted square and they wanted further information to verify I had a legitimate business. (There was never a warning of change of policy, they accepted the funds from my customer and would not give them to me until I provided the required information. They held my money “hostage”) I filled out the form with my business name and company tax ID # and attempted to submit it, but it would not submit because they also “required” an image of my LLC with my tax documentation AND an image the invoice! That’s none of their business! They accused me of being high risk and deactivated my account.
“When we started two years ago, I had a list of about 20 things Square couldn’t do. You don’t know what you need until you’re actually doing it. It couldn’t split checks, it couldn’t distinguish between to-go and in-house orders,” Kulp said. “I was about to leave Square. I talked to them, they asked me for one more chance, and talked about the roadmap. They’ve added 19 of the 20 things I wanted two years ago.”

This may also be “S Voice” or “Talkback” on your device. If that doesn’t do the trick, turn off Mono Audio from your device settings.

If i had not sent them a email asking where my money was, I would have never know where it was or when I would get it. This scam of a company are obviously investing the funds they hold and make interest on OUR money, do we get any of that?
An excellent place to stop right after arriving in Seattle! It was convenient and quick, and the food was good (we had the catfish and fries). It’s nothing fancy, but it does the job. The guy at the counter was super nice, too.
I was wondering if you could provide a bit of advice? What risk would we be classified as? Do you know of any programs that are low cost and set up for appointment booking, online ordering, and non-profit organizations? Preferably one that offers an online store capability??
We are in the same boat, out first transaction was 5k, no problem, several days later 10k. It’s was never deposited to our account. I called and they said I had to add more info such as 3 recent bank statements, government issued papers, invoice reciept, we sent all that they asked for, later that day I checked and said account deactivated. We were confused so I called and the idiot on the phone said the code number was wrong, and my account showed only 1.00. I have no idea what they have done with our 10k but I finally called back and talk to Jordan and he said he could see my money and it saus pending deposit but he couldn’t transfer me to the risk department that is handling this. They will call. He said worse case scenario it could take 90 days for them to send me a check. I’m advising my customer to file fraud claims with them because I can’t release his product to him until I have his funds. Once this is over I will NEVER us or NEVER refer square to anyone. My company handles over 500K a year and they could have made alot just off my fees. I have no idea why they would do this to a legit business. The longer they hold our funds the more interest they are collecting of our funds they are holding.
By comparison, we let one of their competitors (Momentum) talk us into switching to their 4-year contract and it’s been a nightmare! They couldn’t get their swiper to work with our Android and sent us second unit. It didn’t work either. Then they threatened to charge us “up to” $1,925.00 for the non-working unit if we didn’t return it. That $1,925 unit looked just like the $10 unit from Square and served the same function! We returned both of their units and cancelled the contract within our “free look” period. Six weeks later we are trying to get them to close our account and stop drafting punitive fees from our checking account.
I have been using SquareUp in all my small business and have no problem at all. I am very happy with the 2.75% charges compare to what I was paying with all the charges around 4.65% and above. I have calculated very carefully what I was paying with Bank Of America, PNC merchant services. Even though there is no customer service to speak with I am happy to save money with no problem with deposits which I see in my account the very next morning.
The company’s GoPayment system offers two payment schemes. Under one, there is no up-front fee. Charges are 2.75 percent per swiped transaction. If you enter the card manually, the charge is 3.75 percent with no 15 cent charge. That means on manual transactions up to $60, Intuit is less expensive than Square or PayPal. Over $60 and it’s more expensive.
Square automatically deposits funds to your linked bank account within 1-2 business days. Instant Deposit is available for a 1% fee of the deposit amount. Learn about your deposit options with Square.

When it comes to the digital universe, PayPal has some distinct advantages — and not only because it’s been around the longest. Its convenience factor alone carries a lot of weight: “I use PayPal as my payment portal because it integrates easily with my website,” explains Shilonda Downing, founder of Virtual Work Team. “The benefits of PayPal are two fold: our clients who want to use their PayPal balance to pay us can do so with ease, and the funds in my PayPal account can be easily transferred to other business accounts.” Tim Thoelecke Jr., president of InOut Labs, a wellness testing firm that operates in both retail and commercial markets, had similar thoughts: “PayPal integrates with both my accounting software, Xero, and our e-commerce business. Workflow and avoiding double entry are important to me.”
Did it take you a while for your first payments to enter your bank account? Mine was under $100 and while the transaction fees came out immediately, I’m wondering if it takes up to 30 days for the actual deposit to take place?
This company is deceptive and crooked to make such determination without any type of guidance regarding the decision making process. My company is a corporation that has a EIN and a location and still Square considers the company to be high risk! Bull! I say class action suit!
When you sign up for Square, you’re shipped a free mobile magstripe credit card reader. Square has an EMV-compliant mobile card reader as well as a reader that can accept magstripe, EMV and contactless payments that use NFC technology, like Apple Pay. You have to pay for the advanced units, but the equipment is competitively priced. After you order the EMV-ready card readers, Square assumes the EMV liability for any fraudulent charges that occur using the old swiper until you receive your EMV-compliant equipment. In addition to card readers, Square also offers equipment that allows your iPad to double as a POS system.
