Upgrade Your Business with The Square for Magstripe Card Reader -My Review

This post contains Referral Links

At the beginning of 2021 I had started several businesses and needed a quick way to process payments, track payments and get my money back into my account to pay myself back. This was all made possible once I signed signed up with Square. It was the best thing I could have done for myself and the investment was well worth it. Even if you don’t need one for a business, it’s still good to have if you’re selling a car, or having a yard sale. It also makes for a good gift! Read some of the pros and cons below.


They give you one free!

Seriously! For free. I ended up with 2 because I have 2 different devices but the company will seriously send you a free card reader just for signing up. And signing up is super easy. They even let you choose how to display your name on your business card.

The Card.

A nice white, brand new and clean crisp business card. It’s a beauty right? I didn’t even know I was getting one and it made my life as an entrepreneur that much easier!

Apple and Android availability.

“With two versions of Square Reader for magstripe—one for a headset jack, the other a Lightning connector—you’re covered. Just pick the credit card reader that works for you.” -squareup.com

Fast Delivery.

Sign up online and receive in just days.(Unless something crazy is happening in the world and boats are floating in the Atlantic with all the inventory, I retract my statement). But really, mine took about 3 days.

Fast Setup.

Easy peasy. Just download the app and follow the steps. It will start working right away!

No contracts.

“Sign up for Square and we’ll drop your free card reader in the mail—no commitments or long-term contracts” – squareup.com

Fast Transfers.

Get paid fast, every time
“Access your money from Square sales instantly with Square Checking. Transfer money into an external bank account as soon as the next business day, or instantly for a fee”. – Squareup.com


“Send receipts via email or text message, or connect a receipt printer to a tablet. Your customers can even leave you private feedback directly through their digital receipt”. -(Squareup.com)

Zero Charging.

As long as your phone or electronic device is charged then you are good to go. Just plug the card reader into your phone, open the app, and get paid!



“Pay 2.6% + 10¢ per swipe for Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Get your money as fast as the next business day.” -Squareup.com

The fee’s. This one is a given. No one likes fees but they’re there for a reason. We all gotta get paid. Afterall, we’re all business people here right?

What do you use to process your business payments? Do you have Square also? Questions? Please comment and let us know what your experience as a business owner has been like before and after Square.
