Paypal is a digital payment platform that enables businesses and individuals to pay and accept payments through an online portal without revealing any financial details. The solution is suitable for businesses of all sizes.

Paypal provides a one-touch login process, so there is no need to re-enter information. For individuals, users can shop as well as process transactions overseas by linking their card details through Paypal’s portal.

For business owners, users can accept international payments from banks or digital wallets on through the portal. They can bill the clients, receive direct payments from suppliers or manufacturers and accept payments from more than 200 markets with a single account.

Paypal charges a transaction fee, which is calculated based on businesses’ total sales volumes. The system is compatible with mobile devices.

    Ease of use : Sending and receiving money from/to a phone number, PayPal unique ID, email address. Low transaction fees for personal use and the ability to use PayPal as a credit card processor for a business.

    Cons

    PayPal support is a bit raw when it comes to understand the client needs and you may experience some blocking and verifications from their part from time to time, especially when you are selling or buying something and the amount is considerable.

    I have been using Paypal for years and it only gets better.

    Pros

    easy to use, easy to understand easy to track. transaction history is great. Easy to transfer money to multiple accounts, or the paypal card.

    Cons

    I think overall you pay more in fees, but the pros over weigh the cons. How easy it is to log in anywheres and transfer the money to your paypal card, or to a bank account is awesome

    Pros

    PayPal is secure. I trust it. Even with the app version. I can take payments on the go. I was attempting to use CashApp as a quicker way since some people don't have PayPal but my account was hacked and money was stolen. Only sticking with the real thing from now on.

    Cons

    Of course it doesn't have all of the features and functionality of the online site but that's what you would expect from an app.

    Overall the convenience of having the money directly in my Paypal account is the seller for me. Although I do have issues with the swiper, that issue seems to be the same in multiple different brands I have tried.

    Pros

    I liked that this mode of payment is linked to my Paypal account already, so that the money is available to me immediately.

    Cons

    I wish the actual swiper you run the card through worked better. Sometimes you just have to swipe, swipe, swipe until it will actually read the card.

    With how many people can create or already have a paypal, it opens up a lot more doors for our small business and personally it has been a very useful tool as well. Great all around experience with paypal.

    Pros

    The ability to send and accept payments for a small fee or free in some cases without the hassle of dealing with routing numbers/account numbers for banks and whatnot has been terrific. Whether you're using it for payments for your business, to pay for things online a bit safer, or to send and receive money from family and friends, it works great and is very user friendly and secure. Also has a great mobile app.

    Cons

    My only complaint is how long it can sometimes take to link a bank for transfers between them and paypal, but that may not even be a paypal issue and isn't that big of a inconvenience anyway.

    Easily becomes a personal tracker for transactions on the run. Simple to use, monitor, and track. Overall it is a great tool.

    Cons

    Only con is the number of people who are unaccustomed to interacting with this form of transaction. As this form of technology becomes more engrained, Paypal should become the front runner.

    Pros

    PayPal has been a life saver so to speak. In the day and age of so much identity misuse PayPal is an awesome tool. I love that I can just easily pay and companies don't get all my information. I start using PayPal after one of my cards was compromised. It's also a great tool to send money to friends and family. Their customer service is top notch as well.

    Cons

    I have absolutely nothing bad to say about PayPal.

    I absolutely enjoy PayPal Here! You can use it for personal or business reasons. If you have a card reader, you can attach the reader to your headphone jack on your smartphone. Once everything is attached, you can swipe the card for a payment or enter the card number manually. I think the app is really neat and nicely designed! It links to your PayPal account and you can log in quicker with your pin!

    Pros

    I really like how each payment shows up instantly on your PayPal account! Other payment systems may have a delay, but this does not. I highly recommend this app for various businesses because it is very helpful and provides an extra payment method for individuals who may not have cash.

    Cons

    So far, I have not had an issue with it.

    Pros

    Any user with a valid card can make payments through PayPal. There is complete security as well as privacy whenever payments are being made or received. It is literally used by all; hence there is no trouble in any transactions. They do not send a lot of emails and create disturbances among the users. The payment dispute section is also a boon to the uses.

    Cons

    If the user account goes under suspicious activity, which even includes a change in IP address, the account may get blocked without any prior information. This can even result in not being able to use the existing money in the account. The support team responds to queries with canned responses and is of no help at all. The fees they charge is not affordable for freelancers while receiving money internationally.

    Great experience, easy to use. I recently setup my parents with an account so they can use it for their business. I would recommend it to everyone since its so universal.

    Pros

    Love that everyone of my customers has a PayPal account so its easy to get payment. Also love the ease of using the app to request or make payments. The online program has great details and is easy for me to use when I need to refund and customer.

    Cons

    Software is great, its just when I have had to call customer service I am on the phone forever .

    Overall the app is great, the platform is secure, and knowing PayPal is backing your business should leave both you and your customers feeling that their information is secure.

    Pros

    What I like the most about PayPal Here is the brands and makers of the app, PayPal. With a name like PayPal behind your payment portal and transactions I felt safe and secure knowing who was handling my transactions. Secondly, the app itself is beautiful and so easy to navigate!

    Cons

    Really my only con of the software application is the extra fee they charge you for invoicing per transaction. One other complaint I had while using the software was the limited reporting features, I was there was the ability to write custom queries for reports but the stock ones provided will typically get the job done.
