First and foremost,  make sure you're well versed and fluent using Square.

I do very few Square transactions (most of mine are online), and it's important to not bog down the transaction trying to figure out my own gear! 

I always go through the swipe,  chip and tap processes before a show.  Good stuff Square,  thanks.

Treat customers as guests, and the way you would want to be treated.

Re: Tell Us Your Favorite Customer Service Tip

When taking cash or check for an invoice, mark the invoice as paid the moment you recieve funds.

 

 

Detail: Even if the customer is still present with you, this will help keep your accounting tidy, and keep your customer confident in your dealings. Invoices marked paid at a later date, days, weeks, or months after recieving can cause confusion, and in worst case scenarios disputes.

Re: Tell Us Your Favorite Customer Service Tip

I've been in my freelance business on and off for a few decades now.  I love the Square “Point of Sale” app and functionality!  My suggestion is to add the % cost of transferring your customer payments to your bank INTO the invoice amount you are charging them.  I don't know about anyone else but it drives me crazy that my numbers don't match my records; I feel like I am missing hard earned income.  It is what it is, so work it in; you earned it. :)
