Square is a fintech company that provides a variety of services and tools aimed at simplifying payment processing, business management, and financial transactions for both businesses and individuals. Established in 2009 by Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey, Square has emerged as a significant player in the payment and commerce sector.
Born with a clear objective to address common challenges in the payment experience, Square has introduced an array of features, hardware, and platforms to streamline payment collection processes without the need for extensive technical setups.
Among the numerous offerings from Square, one particularly intriguing feature stands out, and that’s what we’ll be delving into in today’s article: Square Feedback.
What is Square Feedback?
Square Feedback is a customer feedback system provided by Square, aimed at facilitating direct and private communication between businesses and their customers. This system empowers businesses to gather valuable insights and opinions from customers, resolve issues privately, and improve their services based on real-time feedback.
Key Features and Functionalities
Private Customer Interaction: Square Feedback provides a confidential avenue for businesses to communicate directly with customers. This allows businesses to address concerns, resolve issues, and receive feedback in a discrete manner.
Feedback Collection Through Digital Receipts: Customers can conveniently provide feedback directly through their digital receipts, offering an easy and immediate way to share their experiences with the business.
Issue Resolution and Loyalty Building: Square Feedback efficiently handles negative experiences. Businesses have the option to offer refunds or provide coupons to unsatisfied customers, preventing public negative feedback and fostering customer loyalty.
Remote Management: The system offers remote access to customer feedback data, enabling businesses to monitor their performance and engage with customers from anywhere using the Square Dashboard or Point of Sale app.
Square Feedback is available as a complimentary feature within Square Point of Sale, making it easily accessible to businesses without incurring extra costs.
While not as robust as a customer experience management software, it effectively covers a significant aspect of the customer journey for any business: the point of sale.

We have taken a fictional and common grocery store and mapped out some of the common touchpoints in such an establishment. Of course, the Point of Sale is one of the most critical touchpoints, and this is where Square Feedback comes into play.
Tools like this allow you to gauge the satisfaction level of your users, not only at this specific touchpoint but also to evaluate other aspects of your company to enhance and deliver incredible customer service to your users.
In this example, the satisfaction level is reflected in the “Experience” row in a linear format, ranging from Satisfied to Dissatisfied based on the collected responses. This data is of paramount importance, and collecting information with platforms like Square Feedback is essential to gaining a better understanding of what is happening with your audience and the satisfaction level among your clients and users.
