Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using this app to accept cards for about five years for my business which is a service business. Only way I can accept cards on the road is with my phone and I always use the PayPal app. I’ve never had any issues with them holding money. When I charge my clients, my money is always in my account instantly. I have the PayPal card myself so I can use my money seconds after running a clients card. I did have a jack issue one time many years ago and PayPal security caught it immediately and shut my account down till I contacted them. All my info had been changed and their security team allowed me to change my password and then they reset all my info back to correct and it’s been smooth sailing ever since. Not a dime was taken from my account and I was super happy with PayPal’s performance. I recommend this app to anyone who is mobile and needs a way of accepting credit cards on the run.
Horrible card reader connectivity, app freezes
The card readers are horrible at best. Bluetooth connectivity is impossible to work with, constantly can’t find the reader, disconnects or freezes- sometimes in the middle of processing a card. Then you have to force close the app, resign in, attempt to look at transaction history (most of the time that won’t pull up) to see if the transaction went through and then start all over again. An absolute must is to bring back a reader that connects to the phone via the jack that accepts chips. There would be so many fewer issues if they got rid of the Bluetooth nonsense. The app itself is set up nicely, would like to see a better breakdown of sales (when you have different sizes it only shows the main item sales not a breakdown of sales by size) customer service is ok when you finally get ahold of them but expect to sit on hold for awhile. Overall there is a lot to be desired and it’s hard to stay with a company when you have a line of customers because you can’t process a credit card. We are currently looking into other options for at the very least a backup because the readers and app are so unreliable.
PLEASE MAKE A HEADPHONE JACK CONNECTED CHIP CARD READER!
Better than Square
I switched to PayPal here almost year ago and i love it. For about 4 years i used Square and when my photography business started growing, Square blocked $4350 of my last few sales and forced me to refund because transactions were higher than average. So i thought it’s good for Square. I’m growing and they are growing too. So there was no way they would process my money and deposit to my bank, i had to refund the money to clients, which was frustrating for both them and for me. Then i did all my invoices through PayPal. Thanks for amazing services and card readers charge stays for much longer hours. Also, i love PayPal capital, that gave me a loan for my business so i could invest in more equipment. Amazing! And apps work great’
