Fantastic POS system. I rarely use the app, but the POS system is fantastic. Transactions go through very quickly, it integrates with my e-commerce site, the money is in PayPal the next day, and then transfers to my bank within a day. Significantly cheaper than other POS systems with no monthly fees. I highly recommend it!

In a word: horrible. Despite having had to pay $80 for each reader, they barely work. Every single transaction requires the reader to reconnect with the app, a process that takes anywhere from 2-5 minutes. Other times a transaction will stop processing so the reader can reconnect again, causing the sale to have to be redone. This app and the overpriced readers are slow, cumbersome, and unreliable.

Used this card reader for the first time this weekend and it was seriously unreliable. It constantly disconnected from the app every time the device or my phone went to sleep, and it takes forever to reconnect. Customers aren't generally patient people, so this device hurt sales rather than helped. The only way I could keep the devices connected was to have them both plugged in to a backup battery so they would stay on and not go to sleep in-between sales. Pretty annoying overall.
