  • Horrible card reader connectivity, app freezes

    By Gabebabe1234567890
    The card readers are horrible at best. Bluetooth connectivity is impossible to work with, constantly can’t find the reader, disconnects or freezes- sometimes in the middle of processing a card. Then you have to force close the app, resign in, attempt to look at transaction history (most of the time that won’t pull up) to see if the transaction went through and then start all over again. An absolute must is to bring back a reader that connects to the phone via the jack that accepts chips. There would be so many fewer issues if they got rid of the Bluetooth nonsense. The app itself is set up nicely, would like to see a better breakdown of sales (when you have different sizes it only shows the main item sales not a breakdown of sales by size) customer service is ok when you finally get ahold of them but expect to sit on hold for awhile. Overall there is a lot to be desired and it’s hard to stay with a company when you have a line of customers because you can’t process a credit card. We are currently looking into other options for at the very least a backup because the readers and app are so unreliable. PLEASE MAKE A HEADPHONE JACK CONNECTED CHIP CARD READER!
  • Perfect for My Side Gig

    By Literaryworkshop
    I use PayPal Here to process card payments at craft markets. The app is simple to use and has all the options I need. I love being able to set up a list of items to punch in at checkout. Card processing is pretty straightforward, and the fee PayPal charges for each transaction is very reasonable. I also like being able to check my PayPal balance, review transaction history, and transfer money to my bank account through the app. The card reader itself works fine, as long as you use it right. Just make sure it’s turned on and connected BEFORE you start a transaction. Otherwise it may not read the card. If your phone has trouble connecting to the reader automatically, use the “connect to card reader” option, and it will find it immediately. The battery on the card reader is better than I had expected. It’s lasted through a few 8-hour markets. It also charges pretty quickly.
  • No issues

    By TheJeTsTeR222
    I’ve been using this app to accept cards for about five years for my business which is a service business. Only way I can accept cards on the road is with my phone and I always use the PayPal app. I’ve never had any issues with them holding money. When I charge my clients, my money is always in my account instantly. I have the PayPal card myself so I can use my money seconds after running a clients card. I did have a jack issue one time many years ago and PayPal security caught it immediately and shut my account down till I contacted them. All my info had been changed and their security team allowed me to change my password and then they reset all my info back to correct and it’s been smooth sailing ever since. Not a dime was taken from my account and I was super happy with PayPal’s performance. I recommend this app to anyone who is mobile and needs a way of accepting credit cards on the run.
  • Great for service industry

    By Mr. Smoke Signals
    I’ve been using pay-pal for for several years now. I use the swipe reader on an I-Phone 6 s. I started originally with an I-5. There have been some bumps along the way such as connectivity issues and a card reader that failed. I do business in remote areas with little to no cell service sometimes. The connection problems resulted from poor cell signal or too many folks using the same tower at the same time. Manual entry almost always did the trick. On few occasions I had to take the customer info an manually enter the payment once I got back to the office. On the card reader, I learned from Pay Pal technical that there is a battery inside the swipe devise that just plan wears out. They sent me a new one and I was up and running again with no issues. Funds on transactions seem to always be available immediately or within the next day.
  • PayPal Here Chip & Swipe Reader

    By ash_splash_15
    I’ve been very pleased with the PayPal Here app and the accompanying card reader. I’ve been using them without any problems every weekday for the past 2 months. I have only had one instance where the card reader seemed to freeze up and not connect to the app; to get around that issue, I hand keyed the customer’s CC number into the app and proceeded to charge the payment. Other than that one time, I have had absolutely no issues. The PayPal Here app and card reader work amazingly. I’m able to accept all card payments and at the end of the day I transfer the amount over to my bank account. The funds transfer over without any problem within about 48 hours. If I want to use the funds immediately I do have a PayPal MasterCard.
  • PayPal is a joke

    By Curt Swanson
    If you’re interested in partnering with a company that allows you to accept credit cards from your customers, then will make you wait and eternity before releasing your money, this is the company for you! I cant understand why anyone would want to use PayPal! So we went through all the set up and started accepting payment from customers on PayPal and what a nightmare! Thank God we only ran two or three customers cards through PayPal! They are holding funds on two of them for up to a month! When we told PayPal we did not want to wait that long and that we would like to refund the customers money, we were told from PayPal that unfortunately the returning funds would come out of our account as the customers funds were tied up in PayPals holding account! What a joke! Obviously at least one of PayPal’s gig’s is making money from interest of people’s (my customers) funds as long as possible, claiming they’re trying to verify transactions that have already been approved on my customers cards!!! I think this should be considered fraud! I would definitely stay away from this company and would not recommend them to anyone!
  • App fails and says “we are having trouble completing your request right now” when I try to log in.

    By cc&m
    Two events now and the app has failed us. July 2-4 the app went down on two different phones, two different phone carriers but we both got the same red banner at login that said they were experiencing difficulties. This happened again a couple days ago during a 10 day event, at the peak of sales. Luckily I ordered a backup chip/card reader with another company and that ones been great. Paypal is a total let down and worse is is cost us sales. We looked so unprofessional and when we called Paypal they said the have no other tickets for the issue. I’ve tried several times o er the past few days of the event to log in and keep getting the same error message. Can’t imagine what would have happened if we didn’t have the new card reader with the other company. This event cost us $2400 in booth space rent. A down card reader would have been the death of us! Bad for business, we are very unhappy with PayPal right now and won’t be using the app or card readers ever again!
  • Would only recommend to my enemy

    By Babsy8781
    Where do I begin? Very difficult to find information, even on full site. Very arbitrary about holds placed on my transactions, although they always make sure to take their fee off the top, and then hold MY money, even though we have never had an issue with a customer and have never had to issue a refund. Also, I’ve been given completely contradictory information from various reps. Some of which was completely incorrect, and could have been very expensive to me, if I had trusted their word. They are also terrible about informing their customers about their policies, and terms, and unfortunately you often find out the hard way after processing a transaction only to have it held for no reason, for 30 days. I have had no choice other than transitioning my business to my bank. If I ran my business as slipshod as PayPal, I would have NO BUSINESS left. Use at your own risk, because you likely will have issues sooner or later.
  • All of PayPal’s app are horrible.

    By #%^*y
    So I had downloaded PayPal for personal use. And it would never connect my bank, it only sent one deposit and withdrawal instead of 2 so I couldn’t confirm. Tried to talk to an agent via message, and they didn’t get back to me within the day, so the next day I went to the same chat and whoever the agent was closed the chat without answering my question. And I couldn’t get ahold of anyone after that. Got rid of that app. And decided to get this one for my vary small business, and on this app it won’t upload my picture ID. Also when I go to help or the resolution center can’t find any answers, and it either freezes or doesn’t show anything. And I also couldn’t connect my bank with this app either, every time I put in the correct information and go to connect, it says “sorry we can’t process this information there’s an error try again later” so, I can’t do anything with these apps. I’m done trying, switching to something else.
  • Better than Square

    By Arken Avan
    I switched to PayPal here almost year ago and i love it. For about 4 years i used Square and when my photography business started growing, Square blocked $4350 of my last few sales and forced me to refund because transactions were higher than average. So i thought it’s good for Square. I’m growing and they are growing too. So there was no way they would process my money and deposit to my bank, i had to refund the money to clients, which was frustrating for both them and for me. Then i did all my invoices through PayPal. Thanks for amazing services and card readers charge stays for much longer hours. Also, i love PayPal capital, that gave me a loan for my business so i could invest in more equipment. Amazing! And apps work great’ Arken Insta @ newyorkfaces
