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.

Paypal Commerce Platform

Reviewed a year 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.

Your Pal, PayPal

Reviewed 2 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.

A common and effective option

Reviewed 6 months ago

I've had nothing but positive experiences with PayPal. As a regular contributor to user experiences, it's a great way to get paid and spend money.

Pros

PayPal's widespread use by e-commerce retailers is by far its greatest asset. From purchasing from small start up companies to using it with major vendors like Starbucks and Bestbuy. It's a great way to pay for things without pulling out your credit/debit card.

Cons

My only issue is with its selection of gift cards that can be purchased and the lack of features in Canada that are available in other countries (buying crypto-currency directly through the app).
