PayPal Here Software


 

PayPal Here is a mobile app with remote payment functionality that allows retailers and merchants process transactions on-the-go. The application uses a card reader device attached to a smartphone. This solution can help retailers and field sales staff carry transactions and send invoices.

PayPal Here comes with two device options: a “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 solution 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 by using bluetooth pairing.

With the help of dashboards and reporting module to prepare customized sales reports, retailers and field workers gain a complete view of their sales transactions and are able to make better decisions for handling field sales processes.

Pros

PayPal is universally accepted and trusted. It's easy to use; it updates and enhances the software regularly; and there is complete trust and faith in the PayPal process.

Cons

Very little, but it would be great if transfers to my bank didn't take 24-48 hours to clear. Since PayPal is able to make immediate withdrawals from your account, it should extend the same functionality to the deposit side.

I like having more than one option to collect payments...PayPal is easy to use, has some great reports and the fee is way less than the Visa system from the bank.

Pros

App on phone is free to download, free card reader comes in the mail, login and start collecting your money

Cons

As with any card reader payment system, the biggest negative for me is linking my personal account. But it is that or carry another card around.

Pros

It is easy to use for 'right-now business'. It makes transactions with clients easier and faster. I use it for my tea company when we go to different farmers markets and such and it is an easy solution when customers don't have cash on them because it takes all major credit cards.

Cons

Since the actual device is so small, it could easily get lost in transportation. But other than that it's great.

Overall, this was a great POS for our company to start with at mobile markets. It was simple and straightforward and I found the customer support to be great! If you need/want a simple POS to get you started, give it a try!

Pros

This was an easy way to get started with a POS. It was free and simple to setup. I found it very simple to change the products around, as well as prices. The app is simple to install across different devices and platforms and it works just as well on my android as it does on my staff's iPhone. Adding products to the shopping cart and checking out is a breeze. Also, it is simple to change tax rates within the app. This was helpful for mobile events that we needed to change the tax rate temporarily. It also worked well for multiple people to use at different events. Finally, the company was awesome at sending more swipers to get us setup. We realized that we needed 5 people to be able to ring up product across multiple events at a given time and paypal was quick to send us more swipers and get us up and running!

Cons

There isn't much style to the app. This doesn't really matter, but once our company was established and we started using a different POS in our store, this was only used as a backup and my staff actually complained that there weren't pictures of the products.

I use this for my non profit. I can accept money at events without having too many gadgets. Donors are happy that their transaction is secure.

Cons

It doesn't work well with my iPhone case. I have to remove the case to use. When I remove my iPhone case, I fear I will drop my phone.

Besides being easy to use, I trust PayPal. I have been using it for years. PayPal transfers money fast to your bank. For my customers using cell phones, PayPal makes shopping a breeze. PayPal has all their credit card information safely stored. No need to type it all in.

Pros

Trust and Safety is most important feature. Convenience is the 2nd most important feature. Especially, since most of my customers are cell phone shoppers, having PayPal store all the credit card information safely is important. At a touch of a button all the payment information is inputted in their order.

The most important asset to using PayPal is security. There are too many hazards out there to take any chances. Better to be safe and use a pro-active secure program to pay your bills.

Pros

Simple to use, safe and secure and has been around for quite a long time.

Advice to Others

Go for it! Safer way of paying for your purchases.

I use to like Paypal I could send money request money and have it ready and available, I liked the added fraud detection if an IP addr outside of the US attempted to hack me they would freeze my account until I called to verify it was me. All bonus features then when I started using my account more domestically for transfers between friends I was always finding my account on hold or temp. suspended or unable to do this or that. It became a hassle and not the great service i started with, so it went downhill for me rather than uphill.

Pros

Added security features, online account management, request money, receive money, send money, get a debit card to use for purchases

Cons

too much security when sending with friends or family and constant locking out of account for suspcious activity to people you normally send and receive money from.

Advice to Others

Have a list of 10 people you can transfer funds between which won't put your account on hold or seem as suspicious activity

I don't love how you can see everyone else's transactions, but I'm sure that's a feature you can choose to opt in or out of. I just don't see the value in knowing what everyone else is spending money on. :)

Stay away from PayPal as much as you can

Product Quality

Do not use PayPal, never.
Mostly if you run an online business, they can block your account anytime for any reason.
You will find that you can not take your money for months.
PayPal will abuse with currency exchange fees always charging you as buyer and seller with abbusive exchange rates.

In fact, they are stablished in North Irland and Luxemburg to avoid USA laws and most European ones and avoid tax paying.

STAY AWAY FROM THEM

Good solution for very small business but...

Product Quality

We started our business using Paypal as the only payment gateway mainly for its simplicty and the fact that it provides all you need to accept any kind of payment without the complex discussion with a bank or visa/amex. It worked great but very soon as our business grows the amount we were spending on fees was too high and forced us to look at other solutions (in our case Ogone)

The API is well documented so you can integrate the payment functionality into your website easily

Pros

Simplicty
All in one solution to accept any kind of payment
Protection against fraud

Cons

High fees
Blackbox...if a payment error occur you have no way to understand way and you may lose the sale
