I own a restaurant and a beauty salon, Square (one flat fee of 2.75%) had solved a lot of problems for me. No more paper rolls or running out of paper during a transaction, no more chasing down a pen for customers to sign the receipt, no more worrying about missing a tip or doing batching/settlement at the end of day, and no more keeping

+1 - Item arrived on time, and not damaged+1 - Item was as described+1 - Item functions as described, was easy to pair and use for our requirements-1 - The USB cable is fixed to the device, and cannot be removed apart from cutting it-1 - Mounting your Reader in this blocks the pairing button, which is a hassle if it doesn't automatically

It bothers me that this always has a cord hanging from it. If I can charge it and process payments remotely, it shouldn't have the cord permanently attached. That should be removable. I bought the docking station so I could have it sit on a tabletop, rather than having the square reader just sitting out. It makes it look kind of official

I have both a traditional merchant account with a large bank, and a Square account because my business travels and sometimes a phone line is unavailable for my Verifone machines. Up until this Square register purchase, my staff were using Square phone readers (the plug in kind) on their cell phones where traditional phone lines were

Works great - but I didn’t know if you download the app you can get a free reader!!! Ugh. It’s okay I guess because this wasn’t super expensive and now I have another on hand and another sticker saying I can accept credit card payments

This card reader is not bad; however, it comes with some drawbacks, what kills it for me is there is a small transfer fee everytime you wanna transfer money to your bank and you have to spend an additional amount of money to expedite the process of transferring the money. Most people will see the low price and assume it'll be smooth

It works well, but there's a few changes I think it needs.1)I'd really like a way for the power cord to drop through the center (into a hole I can drill into my counter). Customers constantly yank on the power cord thinking there's a stylus at the end of it. Try as I might, I haven't yet found a good way to hide the cord while still

Great product, my 20+ employees love it! I can't believe Clover didn't think of this from the start, really silly considering how often customers need to enter their PIN #s for their debit cards! It's got a nearly flawless design and swivels smoothly, being able to screw the clover mini into the base and the base into my handmade wooden

By RFH
We been using this swivel for a year now. The swivel mechanics work nicely. My biggest complaint is how it deals with the power cord that leads to the Clover itself. Before I bought it, I fully thought the cord would lead up through the center of the stand and that the swivel would have a stop one way or the other to prevent the cord

This is a simple product that does exactly what is claimed. The info on the magstripe of a swiped card is entered into your computer exactly as though you typed it on the keyboard. It works out of the box with nothing special needed. If you were entering information based on this, you would need to make sure the computer is ready to

Works great and does exactly what it's meant to do.I purchased a handful of $50 USB card swipe devices from another vendor, the $50 ones are a bit better built, heavier plastic, and heavier-duty cable. They also allow the card to be swiped in either direction. But for the cost savings, this one reads credit cards perfectly every time.

If you're unfortunate enough to be using Quickbooks, this little item can save you about $600. QB doesn't provide credit card swiping equipment except for use on a phone or tablet. If you are using a computer, they charge large amounts for it and this inexpensive card reader works just as well. Worked the first time as soon as I plugged

I bought this unit to replace an old PS-2 based reader that had gone kaput. I wanted a reader that could be easily reprogrammed such that my existing software (which I developed myself) would continue to parse the resulting information correctly.

Roomy little case. I purchased it for my Square Terminal. It just arrived but I've been able to pack up the Terminal along with a spare roll of register tape.

BEWARE: The product works as it should, but when you try to get your rebate through Paypal, someone has already used it. They don't tell you that up front. They're either used or more likely, they buy them for retail and use the number to get their money back with the rebate from Paypal and then sell the readers for a discount on Amazon.
