    We use Square at our small food cooperative. It’s fine, but it does have two major drawbacks. First, Square does not process EBT or Vision cards (used for SNAP, previously called “food stamps”). Second, Square’s inventory system does not allow decimal entry, only whole numbers. This would be a deal-breaker if we were not assured that the ability to enter decimal inventory (such as for bulk items or meats sold by the pound) is a feature that will be available soon.
    Square, if you’re listening, please allow decimal inventory and process EBT cards. It’s so important for grocery stores. Thank you!
