As of this writing PayPal is owned by eBay but soon they will be divided into two independent companies. In 2014 PayPal's revenue was $7.9 billion. Paypal is a global company that allows users to get paid in more than 100 currencies.

The Good

  • Setup
  • Pricing
  • Access to funds
In order to start using the PayPal Here mobile credit card reader you need a PayPal Business or Premier account but once that is set up getting started is only a matter of receiving the reader in the mail for free and then downloading the app. Once all of that is done you are set to start processing. Paypal has comparable prices and the design of the actual reader makes processing easier than trying to swipe a card through a flimsy reader. When you have to swipe a card more than once customers get uneasy and might think that you are charging them twice. Having a stable reader that only needs one swipe mitigates that problem and helps you to grow your business faster. Users also have access to their funds almost instantly. Anybody running a business would find that feature extremely useful but on top of that PayPal has their own debit card which allows you to use your money and get 1% cash back on signed purchases.

The Bad

  • Swipe fees
The swipe fees for PayPal Here are slightly higher than other companies but they offer certain features that other companies do not so using PayPal Here is a tradeoff. The reader works great for small businesses but it works better for small businesses that are growing and anticipate doing a high volume of credit card transaction each month.

I love PayPal for online shopping. I really love the guarantee and ease it gives you when purchasing from unknown sellers. I love knowing that if a product isn't as described and the seller doesn't respond, PayPal will help resolve any issues. They are an amazing company!

PayPal is great! Using their card reader for my mom's side business at craft fairs and it works like a dream. Easy to integrate to my phone for tracking inventory as well. The app and payment reader is highly recommended.

I finally made a PayPal account at the beginning of the year and I wish I had done it earlier. I love how easy it is to make payments through them and I have never had an issue with sending/receiving a payment. Very easy to make your account as well!

PayPal is great! You can pay almost anywhere with PayPal. They offer purchase guarantees. They don't just allow you to pay online, they offer a lot more guarantees. They want to make sure the customer is happy with their purchase. It was very easy to link up with my bank account and get going with PayPal.

I've used PayPal for some of my business transactions and it definitely gets the job done! I think it's pretty easy and user friendly. If you are a small-business owner, this is a good option for you, especially if you're making transactions with someone who doesn't have their card or cash on hand (they use their email to pay)

I use PayPal to pay others and receive payments from the customers who use my business online. Most of the time I do not have problems with therm, however it is a little difficult to recognize if the emails I get from PayPals are spam emails or not.
