I seemed to have more luck when I tried to do a faster swipe vs. a slower one.
Do you mean 15 to 20 swipes to go through? I never try that many. I give it a few swipes and if it doesn't take I just punch everything in. Otherwise I think the customers get nervous to see you swiping repeatedly - worried it's charging multiple times, etc.
Most customers think it's pretty cool, and I've had some comment that they prefer that to a vendor writing down their cc#.
Yep my customers like that I don't have to write their CC info down too... I love my square!
