Mikal vs Square - are they kidding?

Posted on April 16, 2021 at 12:25 AM

Mikal Salon and Spa Software comparison with Square

 

First Mikal gives you 2 competing credit card companies to get the best rates. Square is 2.5 to 2.9 percent plus a trans fee with no discounts.

Charge it Pro and Xcharge are from 1.3 to 2.1 percent with some other fees – but our salons say it is cheaper.

 

Now for the software

Square does not have Employee goals, employee retention tracking, employee sales analysis except very basic sales reports.

Square does not have inventory purchase orders, auto min/max or package sales and tracking.

Square does not book with prototypes or multi room/service/staff
