As for a merchant app to accept credit cards, PayPal Here is simple and quick. It's also slightly cheaper per transaction if you use the swipe feature than Square. It also can go right in to my PayPal account or bank instantly which makes it even more convenient. The only draw back is it won't work on my tablet.
In my taxi this is great and the customers love it. However, yesterday i went to a remote village with no signal. The app wouldn't accept payment. Could there be something added to submit all information then the app charge the customer when signal strength is greater. I know there is a risk here, but it will open up another customer base
Edit 3/3/17. New version has awkward sign in screen, goes portrait when in landscape plus you have to verify twice that you are signing out. Still hoping that a dedicated connect button would make it easier/faster to reconnect card reader when it loses connection to tablet. A little more effort in the POS and invoicing section would be nice. Right now the invoice doesn't access the catalog so it is more work to use. The POS needs a friendlier interface too. Like the service, like how this keeps growing, so I'm hoping for more advancement in the app.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP: I was paid $700.00 over a week ago. "PayPal Here" held $181.12 . Called it "Pending." I called PayPal, they told me that i should have used the chip reader and that I wont see my funds for 30 days. I demanded to receive my funds. They refused. I asked to speak to a manager. I was placed on hold for 30 minutes. No manager. I called PayPal again. No help. It has been two weeks and still no money. I took two $21.00 purchases last night. (Well, it's under $500.00, right?) They held that too. "PayPal Here" has a lot of work to do on this app and in communications with the banks. DO NOT USE THIS APP!!! Today is March 12, 2017. PayPal Here owes me $221.00 and still hasn't given me back my money. I took a payment for something that was very important for me to have ALL NOT PART OF MY MONEY!!! PayPal here totally screwed me on this one.
It used to be, "Best way to get paid besides cash!" ...but after several "Updates" it no longer works properly. Failure to login, failure to remember choices, insistence that I turn on Location, but even if I do, it still asks again and again. And it always wants Bluetooth on, even though it does not need it. I am no longer happy with it. Then I pressed Back on the signature screen, and it locked up. I had to reboot my phone to get going again. I wish I could roll it back to a previous version that worked!
Never had an issue until these last few app upgrades. It keeps telling me my log in is incorrect. I can log into my account on the Web just not the app. Called to have them reset my account....I'm still waiting for the phone call back..
With this new version, we're very excited to introduce the following:
- Save time! Now you can use your fingerprint to log into the app.
- Overall performance improvements
