    Yes. Works awesome. Plugs right in. Sign with your finger.

    Between that and paypal its helped get some big jobs that customers could charge. It also let's them get their card perks.

    Looked into them...seems like they have a bunch of bad reviews, customer service seems lacking. We went with intuit (quickbooks) for CC processing costs a couple of bucks more but thought it was worth the peace of mind.

    Never had a problem even with a few large transactions. 24 hr or less turn around.

    I love using Square. I first used Intuit GoPayment but that has a weekly limit which I did not like.

    I've thought about it but worry about the fees. What are your terms for swipes and keyed entries?

    Think swipe was 2.75% and 3ish% for keyed. Them think there was another charge of like .15-.30 per entry?

    Do you set a minimum for card entries? Seems that a lot of per cut or under $100 entries would eat up profits. Or maybe you just offer card services and raise prices some?

    I probably raise prices on new jobs.
