Square Reviews

Reviews from entrepreneurs, publications and regular people.

From Whole Foods to one-of-a-kind boutiques, Square supports businesses of all types and sizes. Read what they have to say.

Processing pricing couldn’t be more straightforward.

Here it is: Swipe, insert or tap? 2.65%. Taking payments over the phone? 3.4% + 15¢. Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t have any hidden fees, contracts that lock you in or other secret charges.

'Funds from swiped and non-swiped payments will arrive in Square customers’ bank accounts within two working days'.

'Square encrypts the track data at the reader and it can’t be decrypted by the device it is attached to. This means that there is no way to steal the track data'.


'Square’s new reader brings "heightened" benefits of data protection and security'.

We’re serious about security.

We encrypt a transaction the moment it’s received and it’s encrypted on our servers regardless of where it takes place—even on a public network. Square is PCI compliant and doesn’t store credit card data on your mobile device after a payment is processed.
