Re: SQUARE - anecdotal story

It seems that square is introducing a more full fledged Point-of-Sale system called Square REgister, not just an iPad or iPhone. For this new POS system, the fee is 2.5% + $0.10 per transaction instead of the 2.75% fee on the iPad/iPhone.

Re: Square: One user's review

At our bookstore, we use Square as a "dumb" credit card pad and just enter the total, but we have a dedicated POS system specifically for books. Square would be totally unsuitable as a POS in that situation.

Regarding the [more]

Re: Square: One user's review

There definitely is an art (science?) to setting up the square POS when you have a large item selection with many modifiers.

I could very well see that if the system is not setup with forethought, it would be difficult to use.

Re: SQ: Sticky services

Another thought just occurred to me:

Why is it on ME to remind my renters that THEY owe me rent?

With square, this is literally automated: On the 1st, the rent is collected with nobody's (me or renter) involvement.

Now, [more]

Re: SQ: Sticky services

Hi PuddinHead42,

I actually use Venmo to pay my daughter's shared utilities to her roommate.
I personally don't care for it as it operates very much in a social media manner:

Re: SQ: Sticky services

I keep finding new ways to use Square in my businesses.

Latest one is collecting rent from people renting office space.

That's a lot of land to acquire...

I would assume they have to acquire the land upfront. Wonder if that was inventory that was already on the books last Quarter or is this something that will show up on the balance sheet this [more]

Re: SQ: customer retention

I run 3 different businesses (soon to add a 4th), all but one of them uses square and some extras:

Retail Business
We use square as our credit card processor (and remote Point-of-Sale when selling out of the shop)
This is probably [more]

Re: LGIH today

I've decided to sell some LGIH as it was in need of rebalancing anyway.

I fully expect the stock will take a hit over the next 6 - 9 months.

We experienced a hurricane last year in SC and while no loss of life, there was quite a [more]

Re: sensible

Jean est la personne qui était à la cinéma

Noun gender strikes again!
Cinéma is a masculine noun. cinémathèque (which no one uses) would be feminine.

Thus the above should be: Jean est la [more]
