Pros

I have just started using this software and I love it. I visited a store and the owner introduced me to this software to gain reward points after shopping to get exclusive content.
It was extremely easy to set up, and easy to use. The user interface is beautiful, and customers really enjoy how sleek and clean it looks.
I love the fact that I can earn points when I visit my favorite restaurants. It is also a safe an d secure app.

Pros

My experience is really good and I was using PayPal since 2020 and I love to used it I can use PayPal Donation which is really good for streamers and gamers.
In general my experience is positive on the other hand I think that it is very important to have a good customer service and be present in the Arab countries as well.
If you love PayPal then PayPal Here is going to be another favorite. It's easy to use and perfect for in-person selling.

Cons

The Shopify integration does not work either, and for me failed at the first hurdle, (I have now been waiting 14 days for a fix).
The E-Commerce integration does not work. The Magento integration is for Magento 1m which was made obsolete in June 2018, and is no longer supported.
It horrible from A to Z, the tips always wrong, the report can’t tell how much food, liquor ,2 managers and 3 bartenders left because this system.

Cons

Susceptible to scammers and fraudulent activities that use its brand to lend an air of credibility to their activities.
You have to be connected to an internet signal to use it. We've been in a spot where service is weak and the app lags or crashes.
So far, I've been blocked by paypal because there is a signal problem when logging in. This made me to create a new account, which of course had an effect on the work I was doing.

Beware of Clover

Reviewed 8 years ago

If you have the option to use a different service do so before you regret it. I was signed up for them as a complementary (obligatory) package of my checking account. Their service is unreliable. My business had to start using PayPal (I'm not getting paid to mention them). Clover services were masked underneath the bank's "Merchant Service". Once their service proved useless I tried closing the account to find out there is a fee for early termination or a monthly fee that I need to pay until the 3-year contract ended. The contract went on as the bank account forced me to maintain it. Two months before the 3-year contract ended they charge the termination fee. Now I'm stuck in their collection department which is efficient, unlike their customer service.

Really nice option for very small business

Reviewed 5 years ago

I thought to really seem professional I'd have to go with a credit card processing company, such as Clover. What a nightmare! So many hidden mystery fees! PayPal here is simple and does the job.

Pros

PayPal Here is a great option for credit card processing for a very small business. It works easily with my smartphone. The app is straight-forward and simple to use.

Cons

I wish the stem that plugs into the phone was just a bit longer because I have to take my phone out of its case anytime I need to use it.

PayPal Zettle

One of the best options for very small businesses

Reviewed 6 years ago

I switched to PayPal Here after a bad experience with a credit card processing service recommended by my bank, I felt comfortable with PayPal Here because I know PayPal to be a reputable company.

Pros

PayPal Here is easy to use. They give you a little card reader that works with your phone or tablet. While many people complain about the processing fees with PayPal, if you compare them to the fees you end up paying with other companies, such as First Data/Clover, you end up way ahead. Plus, it's really easy to use.

Cons

It would be nice if the fees were a bit lower, but I'm happy with the product overall. The reader can sometimes not connect well if your phone has a case.
