PayPal Here Software


 

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.

Value for Money

Pros

It is very simple to transfer money to friends, and family, or to pay an invoice, or a bill. The recently added feature to be able to withdraw money is also a major plus!

Cons

No one really wants to lose 2.9% on a transaction. Also, if you are selling virtual goods, it is nearly impossible to prove services rendered. The 1% instant cashout fee is also a bit much.

It is safe when you handle your card alone, and if seen any strange transaction, contact your bank immediately.

Pros

The actual debit on the person's bank account takes some days, while still on pending transaction can be retrieved in case of fraud.

Cons

Anyone in possession of your card can initiate a transaction, and hawkers can use that means to steal people's money.

Grateful to have the tool for our group.

Pros

Cost to get into PP Here is very reasonable. Ease of use makes it a real value to our organization. Ability to have multiple users and one controller is valuable.

Cons

New to the app, but the main issue I have had is identifying the customers who use it. Need to know who bought what and that is manually done. It is also an additional cost, which, for non-profits, costs.

The application really does not have anything bad, on the other hand the technical support is very good, but sometimes it is difficult to find the topic you need help with.

Pros

The most secure, reliable, most widely used online payment processor in the market. Amazing customer support, I have been using Paypal for over 10 years now and, I have never had any issues that they were not able to help me fix, awesome support.

Cons

The one con for me is the fact that if you happen to not live in the US, you can't integrate your Paypal account to your international bank account, other than that this online payment processor is one of the best.

Easy Set up and Excellent Customer Support

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

I believe PayPal indeed is the go-to payment gateway for anyone who is dealing with overseas payment. Setting up is very easy and the procedure is fool-proof. Once you get down to using it, there are loads of features (like generating invoice etc) in there for anybody who deals massively in international payments. However, for simple use like receipt of money - It is reliable. Setting up though is easy but it takes time as each information that you put in basically verifies the purpose the user is using PayPal for. It shows your monthly activity as well which makes things easy to understand especially when you have not logged in for a while. I receive a mail from them on my registered mail ID each time, whenever I get a payment to my PayPal account and when it is transferred to my bank account which means, I can make do without actually logging in to my paypal account. Their Customer Support is excellent not only because their response to your query is prompt but because they accurately understand the user's problem to resolve it. I have contacted them twice for my payment queries (by mailing them) and their response was precise, satisfactory and ofcourse - prompt. So far, happy with PayPal!

Cons

It is not exactly a Con - But there are just too many features in there which at times, makes things confusing for somebody like me who uses PayPal for quite basic purposes. It is because of this reason, though setting up was easy but it took time. For anybody who has a massive PayPal usage, these features prove to be great for precision and transparency of payments.

The charges are not so attractive for key in cards and Invoice methods.

Pros

Payment is instant, No Monthly fees, cancellation fees or set up fees, Have no minimums on number and amounts of transactions done. Easy to keep and retrieve records of transactions. Allows users to automatically receive cross-boarder card payments, accepts many common cards.

Cons

It majorly accepts U.S. cards and neglect many cards from other countries especially Visa. It does not match up to the name as expected. Its dependent on card readers and failure of a card reader will affect your operations in receiving card payments through Paypal Here app.

Paypal is the best way to keep your money in dollars safe.

Pros

Paypal is extremely practical and you always receive your funds in any kind of coin immediately, even if you make a deposit in different currency than dollars, it automatically transforms it to dollars, which is amazing for freelancers like me that live in Latin America and find some jobs overseas like teaching English to some students, in my case or through as translation, transcription or writing freelance work website such as Upwork, Truelancer & Freelancer.

Cons

The only con I see is when people don't know how to use the app or pay you on time, or there is a delay with your bank or the other person's bank and you really need the money, that could be a little frustating.

This is how I feel about most checkout experiences. I trust Paypal. I've been with them since they were called x.com (I can't believe they haven't up-kept that domain name...). But it's all about trust. With PayPal, I know I can get my money back if something goes awry. If I subscribe to something, I know I don't have to jump through hoops to cancel my subscription. It's always easy to check out, and it's very easy to set up if you're a developer. I've been using Braintree Payments, which is a PayPal company since they came about and I never looked back. API is straightforward and it simply works.

Cons

Paypal website itself could use some cleaning up. A lot of URLs that end up with 404s, UI varies between regular user and business user way too much. Dead pages and outdated instructions is a bit of a pain, but I hope it's a growing pain.

I really feel that my money is safe in Paypal, that is, I can have money stored in Paypal and no one will mess with it and that is a good start. I like it because I can make online payments very easy, without having to complete a long form, I can send money to my family just entering an email. It is quite simple and I repeat it is very reliable, in fact if you have a problem with a service provider you can make a claim and they will be willing to help you solve it and to refund you the money if necessary.

Cons

The commissions are too high, this is what I like least about Paypal. In countries where there is exchange control regulations and many difficulties in obtaining foreign currency, commission payments are high. You also have to be careful to comply with Paypal policies and read them very well, as they are very strict and can close your account without prior notice. I've met people who have their accounts blocked for performing certain number of transactions in the day. The downside is that after Paypal block it, you will have to wait months before you can recover your money.

Currently, almost all my payments for freelance work come through this medium, so without Paypal, I would have no money, basically.

Pros

Paypal's reach and the ability to receive payments from anyone quickly and easily is definitely its greatest advantage. In addition, notifications are always fast both by email and by the app, payments can be processed at any time from the smartphone, and its portability is an advantage for any freelancer or business.
And, of course, the fact that it is one of the most widely used online payment methods.

Cons

The first thing they should try to correct is the unnecessary blocking of accounts. They're not only annoying and unexpected (any small action can lead to being blocked, in my case, a trip), but they also take a long time to solve the problem, the verification is absurdly slow and they don't give much support so the account is unusable during that time.
The other thing I would like them to take into account is the users outside the USA (there are so many of us). Getting the money out of Paypal is very difficult because we can't receive the card, and half of the balance it goes away in commissions to make the currency changes or withdraw the dollars. Not to mention that the commissions for payments are one of the highest of these platforms.

Pros

Paypal's personal link allows you to get instant payment from clients. You can also receive payments in more denominations with Paypal. It has a subscription feature too which is not available in Payoneer.

Cons

Many clients are into Paypal too but it charges on each transaction. That's way too high compared to Payoneer's flat fee.

Pros

Brand recognition and trustworthiness. Let's face it, PayPal are the pioneers in online payments and merchant services.

Cons

Worst customer service I've ever encountered save Walmart on a Friday night with half the staff a no-show. They make it so its extremely difficult to solve a problem of their own making, if it keeps their greedy officers from collecting an additional day of interest. The mobile app is simple, lame, and useless for anything other than basic tasks.
