Completely customisable payment solution

2017-10-17

Pros

Very easy to create a fully custom, iframe free payment form. Can easily add PayPal and other payment methods to a custom payment form.

Cons

Could do with some interactive codepen examples like competitors provide. Using custom JS integration requires a level of PCI compliance, but the customisablity is worth it.

The whoa's of Paypal

2017-08-17

I use to like Paypal I could send money request money and have it ready and available, I liked the added fraud detection if an IP addr outside of the US attempted to hack me they would freeze my account until I called to verify it was me. All bonus features then when I started using my account more domestically for transfers between friends I was always finding my account on hold or temp. suspended or unable to do this or that. It became a hassle and not the great service i started with, so it went downhill for me rather than uphill.

Pros

Added security features, online account management, request money, receive money, send money, get a debit card to use for purchases

Cons

too much security when sending with friends or family and constant locking out of account for suspcious activity to people you normally send and receive money from.

All your payment processing needs in one place.

2018-04-14

Their discount rates and processing fees are so low that many businesses use Paypal instead of traditional merchant accounts.

Pros

They offer low discount rates and fees.

Cons

PayPal's business tools are quite extensive. The only con is not in its selection of tools and services, but the fact there is a slight learning curve to use some of them effectively.

Paypal is a good product but not the cheapest

2018-01-11

I think you should do your comparison shopping. If paypal does not need to be forward then you should look at other options.

Pros

The platform process payments quick and easy and gives customers confidence in what they are providing

Cons

The fees are higher than other lesser known brands that are out there.

Trusted security but premium features will cost you

2018-06-24

Pros

Paypal is synonymous with security, which is the most important thing for many ecommerce companies.

Cons

Once we became more serious users, we needed to cough up fees for business-level functionality. It's also complicated to use with businesses outside of the US.

great way to pay internationally

2018-04-23

If you are a frequent user of online payment for sure you know PayPal and know it worths to try.

Pros

. - have an app to manage on your mobile - easily manage your income and expanse reports - easily cancel monthly subscriptions which deduct every month

Cons

- sometimes the price you pay may be more, your card provider will deduct some and PayPal too - you have to really on there security, so far they are good with security and refund even someone brock on logged on your account and pay on your behalf but who knows what the future holds.

It has some minor drawbacks but none are deal breakers.

2018-01-19

PayPal has a couple things they may need to tighten up for the businesses using them. Once up and running, Ive not run into any issues or problems. Incoming or outgoing, funds travel as expected within a decent amount of time.

Pros

Their transaction notifications are also on point.

Cons

I got a couple form emails when inquiring but eventually got someone that could direct me.

Great for Paying Efficiently

2018-03-15

It has become very universally used, making it event more powerful with many integration in websites.

Pros

-Free transfer of money to "friends and family" -Integrations with many websites for ease of payment -Great mobile app

Cons

-Fees associated with paying via credit card (this is kind of unavoidable and not a reflection of PayPal) -Sometimes transfers from wallet to bank account can take a few days (again, not through any fault of PayPal)

Widespread payment service.

2018-02-15

Pros

High level of protection of payments, since it hides your credit card data.

Cons

There are no possibilities to define payments to be executed under the fulfillment of certain conditions (in a fashion like smart contracts work on the blockchain systems.)
