    First Square has been great. Woocommerce has been good. Putting the two together has made me wish I had never even wanted to try this. Our website has around 650 items and growing. We divide these into a hierarchy for organization and ease of shopping. Trying to bring these into square it dumps everything into the top level of the hierarchy, which just makes it a mess to do inventory. It also brought in all of the categories even if we don’t have items synced from them, and never will. The official Woocommerce answer was to simplify the website into only a few categories, or search through a long list of companies that may or may not be able to write a “custom script” that works the way that this should. On top of all of that they actually suggested that I delete all of the items from our site and re-sync from square. We would have lost every product description since those don’t seem to sync between the two either! I don’t even want to know what that would do to the 1000’s of images we have for these products. If you only need to use Square to take payment on your site, this will work. If you have an actual store and want to use any of the other great features that Square offers, plan to sync all of the info manually, because this just won’t work for you.

    product sync is atrocious, mostly fails, sometimes creates multiple items in square. even when it does work it doesn’t sync tax rate, or all attributes.

    Version 2.1.0 causes an error across most popular mobile devices. Tested in Browserstack on all latest iPhone models back to iPhone 7. Tested on Smasung S10 as well. Huge issue, losing massive sales because of this error. Reverted back to version 2.0.8 of this plugin and the issue went away. Please fix as soon as possible, this release is faulty.

    The plugin does not work as expected with products that have multiple options. For example, suppose (in Square terms) you have an option “Color” with values “Red|Blue” and another option “Size” with values “Large|Small”. I would expect this to correspond directly to a “Color” attribute and a “Size” attribute in WooCommerce. What actually happens is you get an attribute named “Attribute” that has the values “Red, Large | Red, Small | Blue, Large | Blue, Small”. What would be individual dropdowns in the Square Online site builder becomes a single dropdown in WooCommerce.

    For card payments on your website this works fine. If you’re thinking of using it to sync between your online and bricks and mortar store – forget it! Square seems like a fantastic platform. I would LOVE to use it for my shop as the user interface and hardware all look super cool. I was even eagerly eyeing up the top=of-the-range Square Register. But it is BADLY let down by this integration. Initially syncing the two platforms is like pulling teeth – very painful! Our online store isn’t even that large with just 178 items. But it takes forever and you end up with duplicates in square and variations created for simple products. Even though it was meant to be syncing inventory it managed to add over 120 of one product somehow! I have never spent so long to try and get an integration to work. Contacted support a couple of times who were OK but suggested I disable all the plugins to see if it’s that or maybe it’s the theme. But when the sync works so well between Woo and another inventory I was using I don’t want to go through the rigmarole of disabling plug ins and I;m definitely not changing my theme! I mean, how hard can it be to sync 178 products with just the name, image, quantity on hand and price? It can’t be rocket science and unfortunately this plugin can’t get those basics right. So, the upshot is, if you’re just looking to use this plugin as a payment gateway then go for it. But if you want it to sync products between your online store and physical outlet do yourself a favour and steer well clear.

    I have just recently experienced the fatal message "09-09-2020 @ 10:55:48 - Payment nonce is missing" with no remediation help in sight.

    Inventory tracking is a nightmare. It seems to have a mind of its own and only wants to sync certain things at certain times. I have it set to sync every hour but even that isn't enough. There have been several times where the inventory wasn't accurate and we sold things on our site that weren't available.

    Full of bugs and unreliable. I now actively advice my web customers to NEVER use Square as a payment processor with WooCommerce. The plugin is developed by a third party who cannot keep up with the number of serious order stopping bugs being reported. This is resulting in businesses losing orders and is resulting in customer frustration. Sort out the glaring problems with the plugin. Or WooCommerce - STEP IN - Ban Square from WooCommerce until the bugs are fixed. It's how Apple and other app stores work!

    awful and services, a product that drops out at any given moment, and is a nightmare to try and resync and bring back up

    rather than supporting your company, they feel the need to just ban your account without any assistance or help

    WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

    Total waste of time. No way to connect with Square. Look at the reviews for this in the WordPress repository. 1.6 stars as of today.

    So incredibly complicated….though I prefer Square, they are not serious about help for getting their stuff on websites. The stripe option from woo is far easier and can be modified to show additional fields at checkout. Pay Pal plug-ins work great also. Square needs to get in game!
