At my previous company, we used an ancient subscription management tool that worked but was very painful to use at every step.

Cons

Also, I do worry about storing my bank account information for a service like PayPal. They might be insured against fraud, but I still worry sometimes that my account information will be stolen.

I attempted to get them to refund money from fraudulent suppliers for months to no avail. Several of my associates found the same thing.

MH

Michael H.

However, people also get blocked by PayPal without any warning and they can freeze and hold the money from that account that makes annoying things to the user.

The master of online payment

Reviewed 10 months ago

We use PayPal to process recurring subscription payments on our platform. The feedback was pretty good.

Pros

It is the most well-known online payment platform in the world. And, just for that reason it already deserves to be implemented in your ecommerce. The possibility of receiving payments anywhere in the world was a decisive factor for our team.

Cons

The fees are slightly higher than the competitors and this is a problem for a project that is just beginning.

No Problems With Paypal For Business

Reviewed 10 months ago

I haven't had any bad experiences with Paypal. Their customer service is not bad. They'll walk you through any issues you may have or if you need support fixing or finding something within their dashboard. Their wait times are not long either.

Pros

What I like most about Paypal is the ease of use and easy setup of invoicing for my clients. You can manage invoices and create new invoices easily by adding a users email and a description of the item or product. You can also mark your item, product or services as shippable or digital goods. If you are using your Paypal for business you can also add your logo and business info this way your invoice is branded with your company information. Transferring of funds from your paypal to your bank is not bad either. It usually takes 1 business day, 2 tops.

Cons

I'm not a fan of how recurring billing works in the Paypal portal. It's hard to find how to set up clients for recurring billing and its done via "subscription". You need to set up a subscription with your clients. They need to physically click on a link you provide in an email or on your website so your client can opt in to receiving recurring charges.

Easy Set-up and Integration

Reviewed 3 months ago

They charge reasonable processing fees for debit/credit cards. You don't need to purchase any payment terminals or pay any recurring monthly charges.

Pros

PayPal was very, very easy to set up for my business. It is a leader in the payment processing industry. I have the highest trust in PayPal (I even prefer it over traditional bank payments).

Cons

The mobile app would be better if it included more of the features that you're able to use on the full-feature website.

Great Platform, but not so easy for our customers

Reviewed 2 years ago

The overall experience is good. Is reliable and fast. I always get my money at the next day at my bank on any withdrawal.

Pros

Is a great platform, very fast for transactions and reliable. I have worked with it for recurring payments and digital sales.

Cons

One of the cons, is the administration dashboard. Is a little confusing where to look for some setting. You can end clicking the page in circles with out finding the setting you want to change. Other issue is that sometimes you have to ask the client to open a PayPall account. I know there is the express checkout, but some integrations doesn't allow this. For example the integration with calendly, in this case the client must have a PayPal account so the conversions rate is lower.

Great way to shop online without exposing your cards

Reviewed 10 months ago

Great way to shop online without exposing your cards, plus a convenient way to centralize payments as well. It becomes easier to change the credit card in your account only once when you receive the new card. We centralize it for use in payments, but we also use it as a reserve means of collection, when traditional bank collection cannot be applied to our customers, or to facilitate installments of the customer's purchase.

Pros

Centralizes accounts on a few cards, easy to manage recurring charges and easy to split purchases from suppliers. I accept almost everywhere inside and outside the country.

Cons

Only the interface is still a little confusing, it has options that could be more in view. But it has improved in recent years. It requires having an international card for international purchases, using dollar conversion.

PayPal is a good free tool to handle business

Reviewed 2 years ago

I use PP manly to accept online payments, invoicing, and recurring subscriptions for my business for almost 20 years and I rarely have a problem. They're much better than they were 7 or 8 years ago.

Pros

I like their invoicing. Unlike some others, it makes it easy for customers to make partial payments. I'm glad they added recurring billing. On the go, I use Paypal.me with the dollar amount. It makes it easy for non technical people to pay me. For free, they're a good service.

Cons

You have to have an open line of communication, such as notifying them that you will be expecting a large jump in sales or a large payment. They have been known to withhold money for as long as 6 months, but I've only experienced minor and short term holds (30 days). They can tend to be "customer friendly" and will side with the customer, leaving the business to provide the proof in order to win. So keep good records. As a consumer, PP has allowed companies to bill me by echeck when my card failed. I just call them & say that it was not authorized and they have always reversed it and emailed me a letter for my bank.

Pros

I have used PayPal with my online business for years. It's easy, the customer does not have to set up an account if they don't want to and they help out with customer disputes and do so in a fair and equitable manner!

Cons

With big purchases the cost can get a little high but the ease of use almost outweighs this. I wouldn't use this software for recurring charges of large amounts.

PayPal Makes Transactions Easier

It is safe; you know both you and your client's data is secure. It makes it easy to make transactions. You can set up recurring payments which come in handy for bills and some easily forgettable expenses.

Cons

Great for invoicing

Reviewed a year ago

There are other invoicing tools out there, but most people are familiar with PayPal, and we like giving them the option to pay either with PayPal or by credit card. Customers no longer need to have a PayPal account to pay an invoice, which is great. I've had to contact customer service a few times, and those experiences were all great. I just will not print shipping labels via PayPal, and I wish that we had the option to add more than one tax.

Pros

We use PayPal for invoicing products that are not sold on a platform (website or etsy). I also sometimes use it for online shopping and for some recurring bills, and it's nice to not always have to use a credit card.

Cons

I don't like that we can only add one tax. We are located in a province with 2 separate taxes, so for in-province sales I have to manually calculate the 2nd one and add it in as a separate item, which is not ideal. If you use shipping labels, be prepared to NOT make a mistake, because there is no way to correct it or print a new label, and I ended up having to open a case in order to get my refund for the label I didn't use. Because of this, we no longer use PayPal for shipping labels.

PayPal is Essential for Online Shopping

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall, my experience with PayPal has been great. I use it all the time for recurring bill payments/subscriptions, transferring money, and online payments. I prefer to use PayPal than give my credit information online. I would recommend PayPal to anyone who wants to shop online safely.

Pros

PayPal is an easy-to-use payment feature employed by multiple companies. It enables you to purchase items and even send money without having to put in your credit information, which makes these transactions safer. I also like the ability to track my purchases on the PayPal website, which provides enough detail to manage my finances effectively. I also like the "Gift" and "Purchase" options when transferring money, which provides a choice in how much protection you want as a consumer.

Cons

I wish PayPal purchases would translate better to my banking account, i.e., there was more detail in the transaction on my banking app (e.g., twitch subscription) instead of just saying it was a PayPal transaction. I also wish the payments from my account weren't delayed so much. I understand this could be due to the banking institution, not just PayPal.

Overall, it’s great. It’s easy I get my money easy and free and I’ve been paying for almost everything online with it lately.

I like that the software is free and most recently they’ve adapted to being able to pay for things with your PayPal account and I really like that because it really keeps track of the things that I pay for I can always go through and check in on PayPal Amazon was easier to filter than my bank account. And if you sign up for a subscription or a recurring payment with PayPal then you can actually cancel it through PayPal and PayPal will cancel it for you so that’s pretty awesome.

Cons

I wish that they had a recurring payment and PayPal because I pay my rent through PayPal and I would like to just set up a monthly payment but I haven’t been able to do that.

PayPal is best and reliable payment processor

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have used PayPal personally for a little more than 5 years now, and so far I never had any problem regarding payments. I mostly receive and send payments every week from regular clients. And I get my funds in my bank account within 48 hrs. There haven't been any disputes whatsoever. Paypal has very strict security features it keep me informed about every small change or update.

Pros

It is simple and easy to use. Send and accept payments from almost all the countries. Very secured transactions, less risk of personal data being stolen. A refund is pretty quick and easy process. They have a reasonable fees for the amazing service they provide. Great platform for freelancers to manage invoices.

Cons

The time it takes to transfer money to bank accounts can be improved. Setting up recurring payments from clients is not that simple. The account page is slightly outdated. PayPal is not accepted in some countries.

Best Transaction tool in the Market.

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall it is the best tool to use for any transaction. To make any payment to any business or to any third-party vendor also it is best software for that. Also it provides several gateway to collect transaction, setup recurring transactions as well as collecting checks also.

Pros

The Best part is we can add payee using their email address. No Account number or Routing number is needed. We can make the payment through the card also and add the card to the account seamlessly. It also provides auto currency converter so need of thinking about cross country transaction. It provides best gateway for online transaction for any B2B business.

Cons

Sometime Fraudulent activity can occur through the same since users can create some fake account using some fake email id and use that to receive payment which can't be tracked. Also It doesn't have the facility to validate the payment through email or mobile phone after making the payment.

The Global Solution - but not the best

Reviewed a year ago

As someone who likes to solve problems and its willing to work around technicalities to make things work, PayPal has been a very decent experience. As I mentioned, I really miss some key features regarding recurring billing and checkout customization but, as an overall, it is an amazing platform.

Pros

What I really like about PayPal is that it is available in almost any country in the world and works with almost any existing credit card. It's also a great payment option because it has no initial upfront costs, which means that anyone can start using it right away. If, for some reason, you cannot have the money transferred to your local bank, PayPal will transfer the money to any dollar card you might have within two days. The fact that you can also embed it to your website or smartphone app is also great. You can also create a PayPal.me checkout, which will allow you to charge anyone any amount you need to charge in a quick and simple way by via a link you can share.

Cons

I think that the user interface is not the easiest to understand at all. PayPal also lacks on features when it comes to, for example, recurring billing systems (recently, they tried to improved it but the generated codes - to embed on a website - generated an error, which is something unbelievable coming from such a giant technological company), and the options to charge or personalize the icons are...

The Ideal Payment Platform for Individuals and Businesses.

Reviewed 2 months ago

PayPal has proven to be an excellent choice for my business needs, because I can take it with me everywhere I go. It's what I use to collect payments for digital and physical goods across multiple platforms and marketplaces, in addition to billing clients and paying my recurring bills

Pros

It has enabled me to receive cash from clients across the world in seconds. All of this occurs at the lowest operational cost. The most significant feature is that you can quickly create and send invoices to clients. I can also ask clients to make payments. It is more client-focused because it distinguishes between personal and business accounts, both of which are free to open.PayPal's currency exchange rates are also better than those of other corporations that defraud customers by manipulating currency exchange prices.Another useful feature is buyer protection, which guards against con artists who prey on unsuspecting customers.

Cons

The customer service chat feature is one thing I dislike. Most online chat services have an actual agent on the other end actually waiting to chat with you but PayPal has an automated message telling you that an agent should respond within an hour. I have not had an actual active chat with a representative, which makes it time-consuming and slows down the process.

Great ease of use, however lacking in features that other payment processors have.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Ease of payment processing is great. The features that are lacking are not deal breakers.

Pros

There are a variety of ways that a merchant can use paypal to make accepting payments very easy. You've got the card reader which is as easy as swiping a credit card with a bluetooth connected card reader (chip implementation included). They offer a merchant specific link where customers can submit payments. and they also have the good old key-in the credit card number method as well, if all else fails. I also like the user interface that a merchant has that allows them to track sales, inventory, etc.

Cons

The merchant processing fees are higher than other competitors. There is no way to create a recurring charge, say for when a client wants a membership and the merchant wants to set up a recurring monthly payment for their membership. That would be nice. There's also no way to store a credit card number for merchants to charge remotely. This would come in handy when a client wants to purchase a service when they are not physically on the phone, or in person at your store.

Reviewed a year ago

I love this product and will continue using it. I would just like to see the receipts show more detailed information as to what the charge is for. When paying for a service, it would be very handy to know what exactly the app charge is, or the recurring service charge is for

Pros

I love the ease of using this product. You can send and receive money at a moment's notice. I also love that you can use PayPal for purchasing many goods and services

Cons

My biggest con is that receipts do not show what the invoices actually for. For example automatic payments for a recurring service might just say apple but it doesn't say what it is from Apple. That is difficult to manage when I am entering expenses.

A must have for online transactions

Reviewed a year ago

I've used PayPal for years for my online purchases and subscriptions! They have always given me reassurance that my accounts and transactions are safe and secure. They continue to improve upon their features and offerings and have many new features and ways to use their services. I've never been disappointed and if there are any issues I know that I can reach out and talk with them about any problems that I may have.

Pros

The most helpful feature for me is that I get notifications via Facebook Messenger whenever a transaction takes place. This is tremendously helpful when needing to keep track of subscriptions and recurring purchases. You know when and where your money is being spent at a moment's notice!

Cons

Sometimes it's difficult to find what I'm looking for when I need to find something on my account. The website can be a bit tricky to navigate but it's not horrible. I prefer the app over the website anytime!
