How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

PC Mag says:

Square lets you easily accept credit card payments on lots of mobile devices, and the experience is top-notch—for buyers and sellers alike.
