Works great!

I do a lot of selling and trading online... of Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards... well, I've been using PayPal for quite some time and when it asked if I'd like to upgrade for free, I said sure. I was very unbelieving of them sending me a card scanner for free but I got it and haven't been charged for it or anything. I guess it makes sense since the more money I make, they make. Esther way, being able to make little categories and add-ons to them is really fun and has got me really thinking about opening up a small business! Thank you PayPal for alway helping me pay for things online, hopefully you will help me charge people in person in the future!

Very poor compared to Square

Have had PP for years and years for eBay and forum transactions. Started to use recently for vending business as an alternative to Square bc of a rate increase.
Customer service is VERY poor. Transaction processing time is 3-4 times longer than Square. If you are a vendor with occasional transactions, it would be no big deal. But as a vendor who often has a line of customers waiting it has doubled my service time per customer. The hardware constantly disconnects from app and you have to turn it back on and wait for it to connect only to find out that the app has signed out and requires time for another log on. Calling customer service is a joke. The voice menu won’t give a choice with my issues. Choose another category just to get in to talk to someone, you can’t get past the voice system. After hold times, and calling back multiple times to an invested time of 40 minutes, you get a CS person who can’t help you, and transfers you elsewhere where you hold again. When you finally get a real person, they put you on hold because they don’t know how to help you and then you find yourself disconnected. At least 3 or 4 times in your journey to this person, you have given your complete customer information, so you think maybe a conscientious CS rep will call you back. Yeah, right. Call back again......no thank you.

Like it but I wish....

We use this app to manage and take payment for concessions for our booster program. We are run by volunteers so it is a different person taking orders every time. I like that it is easy to use and doesn’t need much explanation but wish I could store more than one menu at a time; we do not always serve the same items at each event. I went to a scan method to make transactions go faster and love that I can store the barcodes but hate that I have to recreate my menu for every event. It would make it much easier if I could store items in the app and pull them up to create my menus. Maybe there is an update in the future that will fix this. Otherwise this is a great app for us, people don’t carry much cash anymore and i felt like we were losing sales before we started taking the debit and credit. It’s also nice to go back and look at previous sales when planning the next one.
