One of the reasons we can recommend Square to any small business owner is because you can try it out for free—only paying when you process transactions. Square offers well-designed processing and point-of-sale solutions that would be worth using even if they weren’t free.
The worst thing that can happen with Square is finding out it doesn’t offer what you need and then hopping over to another solution. What Square does offer, however, is a way to turn your computer into a virtual terminal.
It’s easy to key in payments from your computer, but with Square, you can also send invoices, swipe cards on a mobile reader, or set up a whole storefront with Square terminals. Square makes it easy to take your virtual terminal baseline and grow from there, accepting payments however they may come.
That’s why we highly recommend Square. It may not have the pricing structure to be competitive in the long-run, but it’s a great place to get started.
