Pros

What I like the most about paypal is, it is easy to use in paying and most of all paypal giving a gift reward in every users.
The Paypal program is very wonderful. The ease in depositing and withdrawing is very distinguished.
Love the ease of use and the ease of implementation/integration within other websites and platforms to capture payment.

Pros

It does have a powerful dashboard full of features, a great customer service to guide you through any circumstance you need help with.
It is super easy to get running and use. It has tutorials and forums to help you understand and a great layout which makes everything super accessible.
It has been an excellent experience and I would recommend it to other small business owners like myself.

Cons

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.
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.
This becomes a problem when you need money quickly. IPN and PayPal API are unstable, often messing up transactions, especially if they involve limited items and need verification as soon as possible.

Cons

There are fees that are not too transparent or still confusing as I have customers all over the world and have to pay differing charges.
The only bit about this software that is frustrating is that it takes a while for the money to arrive in your bank.

Easy to use

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

PayPal is very easy to use and many people already have their payment details on file. Fraud protection is also a strong incentive for people to use the service with confidence.

Cons

Fees are a bit on the expensive side compared to alternatives such as Stripe, and recurring billing feels like a forgotten cobbled-together feature.

Pros

It's pretty much convenient using PayPal where I can store my cards and connect with my bank account. Feels secured using PayPal enables my overseas transactions. Since I am freelancer I can accept money in USD too. Loved the App.

Cons

Transactions fees incurred by Paypal is bit high which is 1.9 to 2.9 % which is very high for me like small traders or freelancers. Verification process is painful.

We like their friends and family money feature as well as Paypal Working Capital. Their loan rates are low.

Cons

We don't like the fact that Paypal now holds on to their fees even if you refund a customer back. That doesn't seem fair.

The Platinum Standard for Payment Management

PayPal makes it really easy to invoice users especially compared to Stripe.

Pros

It has an array of uses for financial management. You can invoice clients, store funds, safely pay for products across the web safely through PayPal and so much more.

Cons

The dashboard and functionality can be a bit overwhelming at first - especially for those who only want to use 1 or 2 features of PayPal.

The fees are about the same as other merchants such as Square, QBO Merchant Services, Stripe and others.

Pros

PayPal is widely accepted, integrates with most online ecommerce, and allows customers to pay with or without an account. The monthly statements are great for reconciling the PayPal account.

Cons

Can be complicated to understand the accounting side. But there is some good automation software available.

Helped me to launch 20 years ago

Reviewed 4 years ago

Having used it for so many years, it has served its purpose and is useful in some cases, but not all. I'm using other competing products more regularly now, most notably, Stripe.

Pros

PayPal made it silly easy for me to get into the still nascent world of internet marketing 20 years ago. Compared to other payment systems at the time - and still so today, the cost of entry is relatively negligible and the same can be said about the ease of integration. There are a few other players in this space now that are giving PayPal some competition, but they remain the granddaddy of this market segment.

Cons

It is not as flexible and as straight-forward for non-members to execute transactions, as let's say, Stripe.

Stripe Billing

Easy to Use and Customize

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's the best alternative to PayPal I've found. It costs almost exactly the same and has none of the headaches (in my personal experience, anyway). Highly recommended!

Pros

I think it's great that this software allows you to create and customise a wide variety of invoice types - It takes a lot of the maths out and gives me less room for small mistakes that can really add up.

Cons

While I do understand the pricing model, I wish that there was a flat rate to use it instead of essentially charging exactly what PayPal does.

Stripe Billing

Good billing processor

Reviewed 3 years ago

I use Stripe as an alternative payment method along with other payment processors. Some people may prefer Strip over others Most of my online products and subscription plans are set up with Stripe.

Pros

If Paypal would not be that integrated everywhere I would only use Stripe. - modern dashboard - easy to find your way around - easy to find things - great API integrations - except any credit cards - a little better fees than Paypal - the option to withdraw the money with Instant Payout for as little as 1% of the payout amount - ability to have a customized online storefront at no cost - very good friendly and carrying support via chat available 24/7 and responding immediately

Cons

Not many Cons except in some cases you may need some developers skill but the Stipe support is always there to help you till you're all set

Stripe Billing

High fees, but worth it for your ecommerce

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

This is a must if you have an e-commerce store. The fees are high, in my opinion, but the software is something you cannot do without. You can add Paypal for example, but Stripe is fundamental for charging by credit card. The WordPress/WooCommerce plugin is great.

Cons

The fees are somewhat high in my opinion.

Stripe Billing

Great tool for online entrepreneurs

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have agreat overall experience with Stripe. It was so easy to set up and the costs are definitely worth it. So far I haven't found an online billing system doing a better job then Stripe. I personally like them much better then Paypal.

Pros

What I liked most about Stripe is that it is so easy to set up at no initial costs. You don't need a bank account and it is super easy to verify. I was very pleased to find out about this option to run online payments for my business

Cons

The percentage being taken from meach transfer is a pretty high amount, especially when you run a lot of payments in definitely adds up. On the other hand it also worth is, because it is super secure and always works for me.
