Square is an easy and no-hassle POS. You get everything pretty much for free. Square will send you a free credit card reader, the app is free, and the service is low cost. The design and use of the app is one of the most user-friendly in this category of apps. You can create your own inventory to make adding items to the bill quick and easy. Universal support also enables iPad owners to take full advantage of this system. For swiped transactions there is a flat 2.75% taken out and for bigger businesses, you have a choice of a $275 monthly rate with no charges per swipe.
