POS features limited with SumUp
You get a perfectly functioning app with SumUp – it’s just not as feature-rich as Square Point of Sale. There’s a user-friendly product catalogue in the SumUp app where you can enter product details and images, but you can add more attributes in Square’s product library.
Add several user accounts for a team of employees with both SumUp and Square, and send text and email receipts after payments or integrate with compatible receipt printers.
With Square, you can add timesheets and set advanced user permissions too, but this comes at a monthly cost. In fact, a lot of extra features are available with Square if you can afford it, such as gift cards, payroll and an appointment system for beauty salons, hairdressers and other service-oriented merchants. That being said, the free Square app already comes with a great deal of features and backend tools.
The SumUp app is efficient if you sell fairly straightforward products or services, and in-person only. Square can send invoices from the app and process keyed transactions, which SumUp does not.
