Horribly Misleading

Bergyswife · 6 months ago

I ordered this for a business so my husband can do the transactions on the spot. Come to find out it is not compatible with his iPhone. It does not tell you this in the details. It is very very misleading to get you to buy this product. And then let it go to waste and not use it. I guess as long as they got the money for it all is good. I had to go to Amazon and repurchase the one that is compatible with his phone. No absolutely not expensive to do this but that is not the point!!! Y'all watch out when you order this, make sure your phone is compatible if you have an iPhone

works when i need it

The email I received touting this device clearly indicated the square reader would be compatible with my cell phone. It wasn't.

Frequently asked questions

RedxtacNov 0, 2019

I had a Square Card reader and unfortunately it has been misplaced. I am ordering a new one but wanted to ask is there any other way to accept payment from my clients at this time? Am I able to manually put in customers credit/debit card information?

VZBV - 2 years

Yes, you are able to manually process credit card payments from the Square Card app. Go to the Square App, enter the amount, click charge, and click manual entry to enter the credit card information. - Tamara

Does this device need internet connection or will it work with only cell phone coverage I.e, Verizon?

Square - 1 years

The Square app requires an internet connection at all times to function properly. This can be either a WiFi connection or a data service on your mobile device (such as 3G, 4G or EDGE).

do you need an adapter for the jack if you have an iphone xs max?

Square - 1 years

Hi, Christina! You will need an adapter if you purchase the Magstripe with Headphone Jack for your iPhone. However; you could consider getting either the Magstripe with Lightning Connector that is designed for iPhones, or the Contactless and Chip Reader which will pair over Bluetooth to your phone as well.

Will this work with a 7 plus also because I see the jack is round?

VZBV - 4 years

That is a great question. This would depend on the current card reader you have. If the Square Credit Card reader has a jack you can use it with your phone. I hope this helps. - Jasper

Is this also read chip or do you just swipe? It seems like chip is the direction many are going

VZBV - 4 years

Thank you for reaching out to us, JPHorse. For this specific, model you would only need to swipe the credit card. - Tabitha
