Why Not Use Square?
Square processing is great for many businesses, especially those processing under $2,000 per month. After that point, Square can be much more expensive as the volume processes per month increase. While square doesn’t have a monthly fee, they do have a flat-rate pricing plan that ends up costing a lot of money as the business grows. To help you visualize – every card run has a different rate. Debit cards are 0.05% which is very low. On the other hand, business credit cards are very expensive up to 2.9%. Square charges you a flat rate equal to that of expensive credit cards – for every transaction! The chart below shows the difference between our pricing model – “interchange plus”, and Square’s very expensive “flat rate” pricing model. The infographic below will help you to understand why it is so much more expensive.
