Good for cheap option The whole system is good for my small business, I can't justify paying monthly fees on a bank eftpos facility and I love that this is portable for markets and pop up shops. I got my card reader second hand but it is not necessary as you can enter card numbers manually with the paypal here app. The only downside to this facility is that regular debit cards are not accepted and it is slow to connect card reader when you do need to use it (you can't have it turned on constantly as the battery does not have the stamina). All in all, it does the job and it is better to have the MCard/Visa option for customers than nothing.
Server error V2.4.7 on SM-G900T 4.4.2 Been using since 20150321 2.7% swipe key-in 3.5%+.15$. Haven't been able to generate sales reports of late. Works as intended although it takes awhile to read card reader sometimes. Ability to add options to item catalog is great. Location must be set, volume levels max for it to work.
I have been using this app for years and it's always worked great for me. Instantly transfers money. Would love to see more customization for customers information though. When taking payments manually without the card reader, customer name is often not available. I had a disputed transaction and could not prove it was that customer because there was no name associated with that transaction.
Greatest App for small Business!!!! This app is a must have for any small business on the go. We can process credit card transactions anywhere! Customers receives receipt before we walk away. It allows you to customize users and their availability to access certain features. Great job Pay Pal!
Great when it works Nice, easy system with useful features like payment bundling and quick discounting - when it works. Unfortunately that's not often. I use the older white handset and it struggles to connect to my S3 or Note 8 tablet and has terrible battery life (realistically about 10 payments). Love the idea, and it's well designed for the most part, but overall it's practically useless. Now I need to buy the new handset for another £54 and hope it might work better. Think i'll consider an alternative.
Slow to transfer in bank accounts I'm a small business owner and like the ability to take credit cards. As a PayPal account holder, I'm disappointed in the 2-5 days it takes to transfer these payments to my (verified) bank account. The fees are lower but instant access to my money is priceless. I'd rate the PayPal card reader 5 stars if transfers were instantaneous. Until then, I'm better off using my personal bank's card readers. I pay a higher percentage on fee's but my money is there instantly.
