Good when it works

The app and card reader work well. I managed to use the wrong password and got locked out for over 6 hours. I could not find a way of getting back into the app via my Pay Pal account and lost significant turnover. Things like this need improving. Helpful to be use pay pal balance to pay for stuff.

Before downloading ,

I am not a business.

While I use PayPal often to lend and collect debts from friends, I am not a business. Every time I attempt to log in to the app it tells me they want to upgrade me to a business account for free, but I am not a business. I am asked to give the business name, phone number and address (which don't exists because surprise surprise, I am not a business). When I click cancel on this screen it goes back to the log in page. When I try to log in it tries to upgrade me. I. Am not. A business.

While I use the service PayPal provides and it is great, the app is currently garbage because I can't sign in on it and it is worthless to me. This is an issue that needs fixing. I clicked personal account when I signed up because I do not WANT a business account because I AM NOT A BUSINESS. Stop assuming I want an upgrade and forcing me to get it.

Update of device

Just updated the device which goes with this app. Unfortunately the guys at paypal do not seem to have addressed the long term issue with the device not going into sleep mode while this app is open. The only way this can be done is to close the app otherwise the device battery drains at an alarming rate. I use mine for working at fairs where I have no electricity so that's no use. I can't log out of the app then back in every time I have a customer- it's too time consuming. I can't trust the device to do a whole day of trading hence the app is not satisfactory.

Other issues I have include having to reconnect the device every time I want to use it and difficulty using it if lots of people are using wifi - it times out making people (and me) nervous.
Loading a day's sales history takes too long so you can't just glance to check.

My device is over a year old so out of its guarantee period.
Charges on PayPal transactions are considerably higher than other, similar devices.

If the device worked as well as it did before the sleep mode issues, I would give the app 4 stars because it is pretty user friendly with a clear layout.
