Like I said before, it's great to use when you have to manage multiple warehouses, multiple stores or multiple websites, or all of the above and you need to keep an up to date inventory for all locations. Once learned it will make anyone's job much easier to do each day.

Square

Square for Retail is simple, easy to account for, and serves most purposes that a business like ours needs. There are very few drawbacks once it's up and running. For a company like ours who wants to emphasize experience from the time the customer walks in the door to the time they walk out, and where cost is important, Square for Retail provides an awesome interface for the customer, with attractive, easy to use terminals, and a very accessible price point where we can get set up with a clean, attractive, and functional point of sale system while starting up. We have no intentions of moving away from Square for Retail as long as it maintains its quality and support.

  • This may just be me, but I want some additional customizations for our biggest annual fundraiser, so that we can differentiate between donations, chance drawings, etc.

      It's been so long since we actually chose this program, I am not sure of the competitors out now. I started using it a couple years ago, but our company has used it for maybe 10 years now? We plan on reviewing other systems next year, so I will know more then.

      Square

      Stripe is more suited for internet or online order forms and businesses for which it integrates. It works well and same as Square with similar fees. Stripe however does not send a physical card reader by default and is not as large of a company. We chose Square due to the integrations it offers, ease of use, and familiarity clients have with existing card readers to make them more comfortable.
