  • A: It should work on any phone that has a port that will fit the reader. You have to download the app because that’s how your financial transactions happen. Yes it takes debit and credit cards. Not chips though. That’s a different kind of reader. This one is just a swiper.

Regarding your question about the Square Credit Card Reader for iPhone, iPad and Android: There is a a Lightning Adapter available from SquareUp which lets you connect the Square Reader to your device via the Lightning port.

Easy to use once I purchased an adapter for my phone. My newer phone does not have the 3.5mm jack and only a usb-c port but an adapter did the trick. I like the ease of use in being able to take cards for purchases with just my phone. After setting up and account and downloading the app to my phone, I was quickly able to make a charge and swipe a card for payment. There are different fees to be aware of when utilizing the square device and app.

Square Credit Card Magstripe Reader with Aux Connector is a must have for any small business owner. It makes payments so much easier to process and much simpler. It's pretty much a plug and play device. It's super easy to set up and simple to use. The directions are straightforward and easy to understand.

The perfect Square Credit Card Magstripe Reader with Aux connecter fits perfectly for my Android phone. Simply plug it into your devices headset jack or lightning connector to start accepting payments. This device helped me accept debt/ credit sale that would have walked away if I accepted cash only. Overall the Square helped me double my gross intake in the long run.

This card reader is a great way to take credit card payments. It’s a reliable way to get paid! I don’t like that there is a transfer fee to put the money into your bank account. Overall, it works well.

Hey! Thanks so much for the review. You can transfer money for free to your bank account using our standard transfer option. It will take 1-2 business days to arrive in your bank account and will be free of fees. Check out the details here: https://squ.re/transferoptions

I have been trying to find a better way to collect payment for tutoring. I was using an online app, but this hindered people who did not use those apps. I have used this before as a customer, but never as seller. I found this so easy to use. It worked directly with my phone and I can just swipe the customers card. I knew there would be a fee with this program, but there are with most programs. I asked how my customer felt about using this instead, and they felt it was more secure than using an online app. I am excited to continue to use the square and feel more secure with my transactions.

For anyone with a small business or even just starting out in business this is an easy to use appliance you use with your phone to process credit card payments. The Square platform is pretty easy to set up, has great reporting features and the credit card reader is small, convenient and so worth the cost.

This little device works well, is very convenient and very easy to use as long as you have a phone that has a port to plug it into. The updated iPhones have eliminated the headphone port, so this accessory would be useless.

Hi! Thanks so much for the review. We do sell a magstripe reader with a lightning adapter for iPhones and you can always use a 3rd party adapter to help connect your current magstripe reader to your phone if you don't want to get a new reader.

This little card reader comes in handy when I’m doing trade shows or flea markets and I have to take card payments. It does need to have a connector that allows you to use it with your lightning charger if you have a newer iPhone.

Need an aux port

Drp630 - 2 years ago
I'm angry with myself for choosing this product. The description clearly says "aux" but I failed to consider that none of our phones have aux ports anymore. I was able to test it out with our ipad and it works as expected. I had never been on the receiving end of a Square transaction but it's not hard. The package includes instructions for what you need to do with your device and it comes with a sticker for your business door or register showing that Square is accepted. I wish I could use it on my Pixel 4 or I would give this 5 stars.

It did not read most of 30+ credit cards we tried, so we had to return it. Ordered another one at a higher price at Target, but then it was no longer available.

Sorry you had these issues with your magstripe reader. We'd recommend this troubleshooting for it: squ.re/apptrouble if you're ever having trouble with it in the future.

Such a greatly needed technology--I just wish it was more consistent. I had to enter most card numbers manually and this is the second Square I have used over the years. Great price so I guess you get what you pay for.
