PayPal Here is a mobile application that allows retailers and merchants to process transactions. The application uses a card reader device attached to a smartphone. This solution helps retailers and field sales staff to process transactions and send invoices.

PayPal Here comes with two device options Mobile card reader and a chip card reader. The Mobile Card Reader solution is designed to support debit and credit card payments only. The solution comes with a card reader device that connects smartphones' audio jacks.

PayPal Here's Chip Card Reader device supports multiple payments methods, such as magnetic stripe cards (i.e., debit and credit cards), chip cards and Apple Pay. The solution comes with a separate payment device that connects to smartphones using bluetooth pairing.

With the help of dashboards and reporting module users can prepare customized sales reports, retailers and field workers can get a view of their sales transactions in order to make decisions for handling field sales processes.

Gets the job done

Pros

I use paypal for a lot of our big business transactions and payments. I trust it, its safe and secure, I don't have to worry about fraud. I also like that it saves my profile where I don't have to type my card information in every time. I also like that I can access it from anywhere I want.

Cons

It has happened a few times now so it might be a software issue but it does tend to say my password is invalid numerous times. I track all of my passwords so I know it is correct yet it has given me error messages. It hasn't done it now in a month or so, so hopefully it is fixed. Overall nothing bad about the software at all

The Most Reliable Money Transfer Tool.

PayPal Here App have significantly assisted us to make payments in our organization. With this item, shipping items from one location to another is possible. The application is so easy to use.

Pros

I think I love everything from this product. It does wonders. From its ability to make payments at any time, at any point in the world. Again, the support team of PayPal Here App are always awake, where they offer significant assistance when need be. Furthermore, the payment process is very quick with PayPal Here App, where within just a click, this are done. PayPal Here App is a great tool.

Cons

However, PayPal Here App is prone to charge back, where some vendors may play games and reclaim their money again. Furthermore, PayPal Here App is prone to limitations, even without a genuine reason. The vendor should correct the two problems.

PayPal has simplified things

Pros

PayPal is very straight-forward. You can add tracking info if mailing an item, can easily transfer money to your bank account, and can quickly see your balance.

Cons

If using for business, you have to pay a fee. This is a bit of a disappointment.

Paypal is a great concept but the company is horrible

They are great to use to pay friends (Friends and family) and are the universal E-commerce ACH but customer service is horrible and has gotten me to close my account. I prefer to just type in my credit card info rather than use them for extra security, as if anything happens, they just make life way more difficult and waste your time.

Pros

So easy to use and just about every website uses it.

Cons

The customer service aspect of paypal is horrible. You go through a bunch of hoops to get problems solved, both as a buyer or a merchant, as if they do not want to help you. Paypal sends you overseas, and will transfer you several times to other people overseas before you speak to an American worker.

Disputes take forever, and if you are a business, they usually side with the customer. But even then as a customer, they still are a pain to deal with.

Pay to anyone

Pros

This is the easiest online platform to pay and receive money from anyone. What you need to do is to have account with them and Paypal helps me alot for my international online shopping! no hassle to go to the bank/other remittance service, currency exchange issues and you can do it anytime. Fast, free, user friendly. Excellent online payment tools, all sellers should consider to use this.

Cons

Lately receive many spams and concerned about hacking issues

It is okay. Though I use it I am slowly moving away from paypal to other software

Pros

Paypal is simple to use, easy to invoice and also to send and receive money. Easy for customers to handle transactions as well

Paypal disputes usually end with Paypal siding with customers rather than the business owner, no matter how much proof has been provided

Good for sending and receiving money.

Pros

PayPal is overall very simple to use. It's the best software if you're wanting to send or receive money to and from friends, family, or small businesses. The thing I like the most is that PayPal is easy to navigate. Sending money has never been issue. I also do like that money is converted automatically.

Cons

I don't have very many complaints about the software. I have not ran into too many problems, but I once almost lost my money because I was attempting to upgrade my PayPal into a business account. My account froze and I was unable to access my funds, which was a lot of money. Luckily, customer support fixed that and I was able to continue to use my account normally afterwards, but it was not experience I would like to run into again.

PayPal - Personal Review

Given my personal experience with Paypal and knowing it’s been established for so many years, I don’t worry about being compromised.

Pros

I have experience utilizing PayPal for purchases as well as utilizing it as a merchant on PayPal. I have never had any issues with quick, reliable transactions and setup is relatively easy. I like the peace of mind, not worrying about secure payment information being compromised.

Cons

I have not encountered any issues or problems with this software and have been using it for a few years.

Review for PayPal

Pros

I love how easy it is to transfer money via PayPal. It is very convenient at all times and I especially love the app.

Cons

I wish the money transferred faster. It can be a bit of a hassle when the money is needed immediately but the transfer can take up to a few business days.

Point of Sale Game Changer

Trustworthy company with a good track record that keeps delivering amazing products.

Pros

I've had a Paypal account since I can remember so was very happy to hear that they have a point of sale app that makes it easy to set up payment. Very easy set up, and you have the trustworthiness of a large company that many have heard. It reduces the apprehensiveness of customers forking over financial information that they'd like protected.

Cons

Their fees are pretty minimal per swipe, especially with AMEX which typically has higher rates and hurts to use sometimes.

PayPal Here App Review

Overall very good for small business but wouldn't advertise as a necessity.

Pros

As with other PayPal services, this is very convenient and does not require much set-up.

Cons

Customer service can be difficult to reach. Seemed to run into issues with compatibility due to software updates needed.

Pros

We integrate Paypal into our website for membership payments, works well and a platform that people generally trust and feel safe using.

Cons

Sometime the admin interface can be a bit confusing but probably because I only use the admin side about once a year.

PalPay

PayPal is good when selling items on sites like Amazon or Ebay but I stopped using it to send friends and family money due to the time it takes to receive.

Pros

Having been using PayPal for a few years now when selling through Ebay. Its a great way to accept cash fast and rates arent to high.

Cons

Receiving/sending funds shouldn't take so long.
