very rare for me to talk about my personal experience with software

For the many years, I have used PayPal for my payments both as a merchant and a buyer, the new development on PayPal-Checkout has given me a true and new experience. As a frequent shopper with PayPal set as my payment option, using PayPal-Checkout have given me choice, control and freedom for easy payment. When I visit most of my shopping sites, I realized the situation was the same and the payment process completed in minutes and in very easy steps.

Pros

. It's very rare for me to talk about my personal experience with software but for PayPal-Checkout it will be an injustice if I maintain the silence. What I enjoyed most. The fact that I didn't have to get back to my PayPal account in order to initiate payment securely was a life-changing experience for me. All the necessary steps for the PayPal-Checkout are automated and I don't have to provide the information manually whenever I need to make payment. A secure connection is offered and the billing information together with shipping automatically generated at a click of a button. What a nice experience? Thanks to technology. I already had a PayPal account at the time I discovered about the PayPal-Checkout making me enjoy an easy time to make all my payment. The software is very greats since it doesn't transfer any cost to the buyer when used for making payment hence very cost effective. When I first interacted with the platform and I was able to receive all the information including the payment transaction ID which proved it was now more real to me. Since I use the same software to receive payment, the steps to enable my API setting and access were very easy when I created my online store. The checkout option supports may merchants and I was able to receive payment and notifications at the right time.

Cons

Some of the limitations. No perfect platform can be without a few loopholes and this is some of the disadvantages I have experience when using PayPal-Checkout sing. You must have a PayPal account to enjoy convince caused, the connection can be affected by slow internet connection and inability to pay merchants without ready APIs. In my opinion, PayPal-Checkout is the greatest move that has happened in our time hence we must embrace it.

Works great on our business website

Very good experience! We’ve been using PayPal Checkout for our website online gift certificate purchases and it’s worked great. Easy to implement and use.

Pros

We use this software each year on our website in order to sell gift certificates for our services over the holidays. It works great for us! Our staff gets instant notification of payment and we’re able to deliver the gift certificates to our clients.

Cons

The transition fees are a bit high, it would be great if the rates were a bit more competitive, but it’s still within a reasonable range.

Reasons for Choosing PayPal Commerce Platform

Again, it’s a trusted name for those who are unfamiliar with our business.

Fast and Efficient

I love PayPal checkout it makes my job and my personal transactions a lot smoother.

Pros

PayPal checkout makes the checkout process easier because it stores your card information and shipping/ billing address so checkout is less of a hassle. PayPal doesn’t require a merchant account. PayPal fees are inexpensive compared to others.

Cons

PayPal has the ability to freeze your account at their own discretion. PayPal is a major target for hackers trying to scam and phish users.

Service-based and digital product businesses beware!

Pros

Super easy to use, subscriptions and payment buttons are fully integrated

Cons

My business PayPal account was frozen by the company twice in TWO MONTHS. I've heard of this happening with many companies in my industry (coaching and digital products) that do big launch periods with giant sales spikes, but I have structured my company to have consistent weekly sales instead (and I'm still a little guy anyway!) And it has still happened to me twice. PayPal doesn't have very high insurance coverage for non-trackable products like digital and services. I was able to get the issue resolved both times but can no longer count on them.
