    One MAJOR downside of Square is that it doesn’t allow an authorization/hold on a card. Our company needs to run a refundable $200 damage authorization on every rental. The Square “community” forum has been requesting this feature for about 2 years, and it’s always “in the plans”. Hundreds of merchants from bars where people run a tab, to equipment or vacation rentals need this feature and are in search of a better solution. Square has tons of bells and whistles, but lack this seemingly basic function. 🙁

        If you wanted to expand the reveiw you could look at plugin/community app support. By this I mean the plugins available for example on WordPress for Stripe vs Square

        I found the article as I have a client who runs a campsite and wants a booking form using square in Canada, Installing WooCommerce and a plugin for square seems overkill for selling one thing on his site, other plugins fall short on support in CAN, found one but its USD and although we could change the plugin it gets very messy.

        Good article, I think for my Church donations on Sunday who is looking for an Electronic option we may lean towards Stripe.
