Square Point of Sale is a polished POS system that’s fully sufficient for many small businesses.
It includes essential features for running a shop, café, professional service or any other business that doesn’t need something highly specialised. If you do eventually need more detailed tools, the available POS upgrades and partner apps will likely meet those needs – prices of which will vary.
In this COVID-19 era, Square has also done a lot to integrate online payments and ordering features with the app so those who need to balance online and in-person payments can manage with Square alone.
A thing to consider is whether you want to use Square Reader for face-to-face payments, as this will be the only compatible card machine. The payment flow with this machine is super smooth for contactless, but needs a little getting used to with the on-screen PIN entry.
Overall, we think Square Point of Sale is excellent value for small businesses who want to get started quickly without complicated pricing or a contract to commit to.
