    Not a great buy

    • Written by from SARATOGA

    I would recommend buying the square register but would like to alert the prospective buyer on a few issues I have struggled with in the last few month of using the Square Register:

    - The first register I bought had some bugs as the square register/stand was unable to connect with the IPad. Since Square's customer service is almost non-existent, I wasted a lot of my time trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. In the end, I gave up and exchanged the stand. Thank you Apple for you no hassle return policy.

    - The next Square worked well with my ipad...no issues. I love the interface and customers really like my new register. However, I keep having some of these issues, on and off:

    * Printer stops working on and off and setting shows that printer is not connected. I have to either quit the square app and restart it or restart the ipad to make the printer show up again in the app.
    * Register end/start button disappears. Again, I have to force quit and restart to make it work again.
    * App freezes sometimes...have to restart.

    Other than that, everything is great!

    Up to the job !

    We have used the Square stand for almost a year now. It makes the iPad register much more professional looking, works well and has scanned over 10,000 transactions. The staff loves it. As a plus, it is Apple like in its design. Keeps the iPad charged and does what it is suppose to do. We got it when the price was $299 - at $99 it becomes essential equipment. I am getting a second one today.

    Love Square Stand! Bring back the lightning model please!

    Have been using square register since well before they offered the stand. Receipts printed over wifi and often had problems with our printer, now with everything running on USB we have 99.9% uptime. I also thought it was an oversight to not put a pin hole in to allow restarting the iPad without removing it from the stand, but apps can be quit by other methods.

    The USB hub does not work

    • Written by from Port Arthur

    I ordered this to make it easier to swipe credit cards for my small business. Everything worked great out of the box and a couple days later it didn't. The USB hub that supposed to charge the iPad, connect the printer and scanner just stopped charging. I think it is a defect with all the Square Stands. I went out and got another one and that one didn't charge either. Other than that the actual stand works. I just use the charger that came with the iPad, don't use the printer and charge the bar code scanner with it's own charger on the wall. I'm hoping for a better product soon but until then this will have to work.

    Looks great, works great!

    • Written by from Freeport

    If you use square register you'll love this. I have used it since it came out (it was $299 then, ouch) and it has worked fantastically since. It gets many comments from customers every day. It looks great, works great and I am buying two more and replacing all my old school registers.

    Embarrassing that apple promotes a product that ruins some iPad features

    • Written by from Kaunakakai

    The square stand completely blocks one of the two cameras. And even worse it blocks the sleep/awake button. What retailer wants to disassemble the square stand whenever an app freezes the iPad. How do you perform a hard reset when an app freezes your iPad? Yea apple, good job endorsing a product that makes the iPad less user friendly.
