I'll must say Squared kicked my butt more than once when it came to trying to sign up new merchants who needed only the ability to accept a few credit card transactions per month at a flat rate, no contract, no monthly minimum, etc.
FINALLY, I found the right competitive product for AAY Merchant Solutions to offer our merchants that runs circles around Square. It's Phone Swipe, and the flat rate is less than Square and we match all the other good stuff - no contract, free swiper, no setup fees, no monthly minimum, etc.
Square's biggest negative was NO customer support, none, nada, zip. If you had issues (or panic) about transactions or a delayed deposit, you were up a creek without a . . . just Google "Square Complaints" and you will read the horror stories.
The huge advantage we offer with Phone Swipe is telephone customer support and ME! Yes, you can actually call a real person with a concern or question - or just to chat. No additional charge!
If you or someone you know needs the ability to accept credit cards on the go, or infrequently, Phone Swipe is now The Answer. Please take a look at my web site: www.phoneswipe.com/?source=26958. You can call me (upper right-hand corner of web site) or order online.
