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.
I have a business and didn't enter the tax id at the set up time thinking I could go back and finish the setup at a later time. PayPal at the login just said that I am not qualified to use this app. I use square and another credit card processor at my business and wanted to use PayPal at the concession stand and movie stands. To bad for them I will use another card processor. Probably square.
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.
This app totally sucks. If I had known I'd be banned for answering the setup questions wrong, I wouldn't have guessed on some of the answers. I may call the help line, but have little hope of reconciling the issue. I've looked at online forums and there's been no help on this issue. I think the company may have me confused with someone else. I use PPH for another business of mine with no issue. I guess that doesn't mean anything to them. I hate to go to another business app, but I will.
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.
