App Reviews

  • Love it, except for gratuity part

    By Dawn Florida
    I wish I had not done the latest update. It used to be that I would enter the price, enter the card information, then hand my phone off to the client where it would prompt them with “confirm total”, and give them an option to add a tip. Now it’s showing me that portion before I enter the card, which I have to ask them if they want to add a tip. I never want to make my clients feel obligated to add a tip, although tips are very common in my industry. I wish I could hand the phone to them like before, and they could discreetly add a tip (or not). I’ve missed out on tips from the last few clients, because I would run the card, and it would go straight to “processing”. It’s better when the client can confirm the total.
  • Pay Pal Here ?

    It doesn't work, currently using an Iphone 6S with OS 9.3 It is 2016 already and by now they should've figured it out !!! That been said the app works halfway but it just won't read and no it is not the reader, tried a new one already, at the end it is useless!!!! Everything else can be easily done via browser ...update: it is September 2017 and still doesn’t work ! Unbelievable ! Tried with iOs 10.3.3 and iOs 11 as well to no avail... Reply to developer: Hi how are you, like I mentioned in the review the credit cards reader just won’t work, already tried a new one to no avail. We are aware that we always have the option to charge the purchase which happens to be conveniently for you, higher fees as opposed as swiping a card. There is no problem with the phone, we are also using Square which works flawlessly. Update Sept. 22, 2017; version 2.8.4 installed and it worked once, for the first time ever the card reader worked. Thank you very much ! Update Sept. 27, 2017; again it stopped working, the credit card reader simply won’t read the cards. Got another new reader but it just won’t work !!!!??? deleting the app and switching businesses to a different method, it is sad that after over 10 years we need to modify our billing procedures. Please FIX this issue !!! Thank you
  • Doesn’t work with iPhone X

    By voice_your_opinion
    I just upgraded to an iPhone X from an iPhone 7 Plus and found that it isn’t compatible. The chip reader connects via Bluetooth, but in the app itself, it can’t find or connect to the reader. I called customer support and they confirmed that none of the readers are compatible with the iPhone X. They stated that they don’t know when they will make the updates to this app and the readers to make them compatible. I am now forced to key in all credit card numbers. I even asked if they can reduce the processing fee of keyed entries to match the processing fee for the card reader (because it is their fault for not making it compatible before the release of the iPhone X), and they stated, “no, because we don’t know if you really do have an iPhone Ten, and we can’t verify that that’s your only device to accept payments on.”
  • Excellent and safe way to do business

    By greg110553
    I'm opening a 503c non profit but your support staff explained reserves etc. My fees on my account will always be $200 or $400 and for credit card fraud our financial business banker said purchasing prepaid cards would be safer because there is so much internet fraud. I was just confused why it was not available. It was explained and I see it being very easy moving forward. For my new non profit they will have to use their personal card to get tax gifting credit but I'm going to invest in the chip reader Regards Greg Dalle-Tezze
  • Terrible for small business owners

    By MandaLOL
    BEWARE!!! If you are a small business owner and charge more than $500 in a 7 day period, PayPal here keeps the REST OF YOUR MONEY FOR 30 DAYS! For us, that meant they kept 70% of what we made today and will not allow us to access it for a month. They claim this is standard practice for credit cards, but has never happened with Intuit or Etsy or Square, so obviously it is not the industry standard. This is not made clear when you sign up. It is in the available information if you click through multiple screens to find it. Their ONLY solution for us: "contact all the people you sold to today, refund their money and ask them to pay an invoice instead." We are vendors. We sell to someone, they take their items, they leave. We don't have access to all of the people we sold to today. This is, in no way, a viable option. I have a mortgage to pay with the money they are holding on to. My customer has their product today, PayPal Here has their cut today, but I get mine in 30 days. Unacceptable. I hope this will help others avoid this horrible situation.
  • love it, but...

    By ilikegd
    This app has always worked great for me, except the past month after an update. I used to be able to hand customers my phone to sign after I swiped their card to get them to sign. At that point they would have the option to tip. After the update, the only way to tip is by adding the tip in before you swipe their card. I don’t want to ask customers if they want to tip me before swiping their card! I miss handing my phone over and letting them do it discretely if they wanted to. Please go back to the way it was before!
  • Works good

    By Gotword
    I prefer to use paypal since its the most common payment system in our site category. Customers who buy our products are used to paypal being the checkout method. You can get a business debit from paypal and have access to funds immediately if needed, say for supplies and such. The competitors of paypal only roll over completed sales to your bank account every 2 days or so. Def recommend paypal to any small business who wants access to their funds at all times.
  • 3 year business owner

    By Blaqbeauty912
    I have been using PayPal for my mobile business for the past 3 years and I absolutely LOVE the way it works. It's a safe and secure way to do money transactions, I think the fee should be monthly and not per transaction, but at least they don't charge to transfer the funds into your bank account. I will continue to use PayPal and pray that they come out with a PayPal pay tablet or device that's handheld and you can take it with you on the go.
  • Love it (but fix the tipping sequence)

    By Atlanta Medical Aesthetics
    I am new to PayPal POS, and I am very impressed with the setup including with the customer service. There are only two suggestions: 1/ the tipping option should be available to clients when they confirm the total (not before - I am missing out on tips), and 2/ I did not see an option to transfer the information of my existing client base (I may have overlooked this somewhere). It is nice to tie clients to a sale versus reentering all data.
  • Small business' best friend.

    By Robert7883
    I own a heat air condition business and my customers always ask me do I accept cards and I always said no because the fees were too expensive. When PayPal here was introduced I decided to try it out. Now I encourage all customers to pay with their debit/credit cards because PayPal here is so convenient and cost effective. Now I never have to worry about bounced checks.
