Pros
It is highly intuitive, has good support and community help modules, and has been very responsive when i had problems. I also really appreciate the below-market rate for nonprofit donation processing.
I love how fast and easy it is to use. It's also great that you don't have to wait for your money like other payment processors.
This can be a fabulous experience the ease of use is great its the most common option at MOST online sites.
Cons
Full of bugs that could not be recreated, losing us sales and worse - really bad customer feedback due to their. Being overcharged, 2. not being able to check out.
There have been times that it can be difficult to get the proper API Keys in PayPal, but this is more on user error than PayPal itself.
The worst part about PayPal was getting our money out of the account.

Good payment processor

Reviewed 3 years ago

Undoubtedly my experience has been good, except for a limitation of my account due to the negligence of a buyer of my company's products. I love using PayPal because it allows me to associate the account in e-commerce service platforms, this makes it easier for consumers to make a payment. At the business level, having this platform is essential.

Pros

I really love this platform for fast and secure payment processing. I like it a lot because you can add bank accounts to withdraw money or send to other users, in addition to credit or debit cards, this makes payments easier. International shipments can be sent at an attractive exchange rate between currencies. This platform is used to pay for services automatically and keep accounts up to date, and has good security to protect both the seller and the buyer of the products.

Cons

I think the commissions are a bit high, especially when shipping internationally. Sometimes payments are withheld as a security measure, this can certainly affect the performance of a secure transaction as it can slow down the process. Account blocks or limitations can be seen very frequently.

PayPal's Commerce platform is a great business tool to use

Reviewed a year ago

Using PayPal Commerce Platform has overall been a pleasure and a joy, as you know that your transactions, data and funds are secure and accessible any time you need them. The quality of customer support is on a very high level and any major issues get resolved quickly.

Pros

The commerce platform from PayPal is well made and straight forward. It is quick, somewhat simple and easy accessible. It provides all of the tools that you may need for business transactions and invoicing, receiving and sending of funds and reporting.

Cons

Some of the functions lag from time to time, reload in the middle of the data entry process, but it is not an often occurrence. The platform does not have many glitches or major down sides, it will give you some headache from time to time but it is stable, safe and secure - and that is what matters.

Your Pal, PayPal

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall for the minor aches PayPal commerce is a good solution for any size business. There are enough tools to support a range of situations from start ups to enterprises all from a familiar brand that has the reputation to back it's products while offering customer comfort and satisfaction.

Pros

Just like a childhood friend or some comfort food, PayPal is a trusted, reliable partner to cover all your businesses financial needs. It's feature friendly platform is easy to follow and intuitively grows we with your business.

Cons

If by chance a problem does arise, it's a bit of a hassle getting in touch with customer service. There's a thorough questioning done, which can troubleshoot a lot of common issues, but it's a pain if you just want to get straight to a representative.

It's been helpful, but

Reviewed 3 years ago

PayPal has been very helpful in setting up payment processing and integrating it with my website. Reporting and payouts are simple and easy. This product is just incredibly helpful.

Pros

PayPal is extremely easy to use for payment gateways, invoicing, and taking donations through my nonprofit organization. It is highly intuitive, has good support and community help modules, and has been very responsive when i had problems. I also really appreciate the below-market rate for nonprofit donation processing.

Cons

One feature that would be helpful for a non-profit is having the ability for the donor to pay the processing fees. Other donor software allows tis and it helps to cover costs for small organizations. One other concern is that some of my potential donors chose not to donate because they were unhappy with PayPal's socio-political activism and would not support using this product. When numerous donors tell em this, i need to look for other options.

Paypal Commerce Platform

Reviewed 2 years ago

My experience with Paypal's e-commerce platform has been good, it has provided more solutions than drawbacks. Thanks to this platform we can receive payments online. At this time there are many platforms of this type, but I still think that Paypal is the safest and most reliable. No matter what device is used, the experience with the paypal platform is always pleasant.

Pros

It is a payment gateway that facilitates electronic commerce, is widely used (more than 200 countries), and turns out to be very safe for the consumer. I really like that it allows you to use your paypal balance or credit or debit card, or a mixture of both methods to make a purchase. The payment gateway can be integrated with all kinds of websites, it is well known and used. This payment gateway for electronic commerce is a practical and fast way to start receiving payments on our website. And it is very easy to use. Excellent!

Cons

In my opinion it has few disadvantages. It can be difficult to integrate the payment gateway with a website. In our case and at the time, we had to hire a technician or specialist to do it, we couldn't do it. We have also noticed that the commissions that PayPal receives are a little higher than other payment gateways. And finally, what has caused us the most problem is that we cannot transfer the funds from our paypal account to a bank account. For most Latin American countries, Paypal does not allow it.
