Likelihood to Recommend

Clover

Clover is good if you are going to have consistent business all year long, wish to have inventory control, and have a reliable internet connection. We also use it in our cafe, which is great because you can customize things and print an "order" receipt, which is what the chef uses to make the order. It definitely needs to be in a stable environment with an actual table or counter.

PayPal Here

PayPal Here seems to be well suited for low volume merchants with a low average sale. We seem to struggle to have any kind of stability or success in taking payments with an average single sale amount of $300 and have to call in for help every time. They also don't always follow their own rules regarding when they will hold funds and when they won't.

Cons

Clover

  • Pricing and contracts. When we first decided to use Clover we were required to use their equipment and have a contract. Their monthly fees are a bit high
  • Customer service needs some improvement. A lot of what we have learned we figured out on our own.
  • You have to use their equipment. They don't have an app you can put on any device

PayPal Here

  • The receipt that people receive for a donation made through PayPal Here isn't easily edited/adjusted. I would like to add our branding and specific text to it.

Support hasn't been needed in the 2 years of using PayPal but I have received calls from the company in the past asking about my experience with the device that was sent to me and they were pretty helpful with advice. Support is all over the internet if needed but for emergencies, so it is best to contact them during business hours.

Alternatives Considered

Clover

Retail Pro is a perfect of example of a full featured POS system that can do lots of things right. Unfortunately to deploy Retail Pro will require a project team and skilled consultants who will happily bill you for the time spent on the project. You will also only use a small percentage of the Retail Pro functions that you are paying for.

PayPal Here

The PayPal Here app and the PayPal Here card reader are the only solutions we have ever used for manual processing of credit card payments or performing transactions where we physically accept payment via credit cards in person. We have never tried the Square credit card reader device or any other point of sale system.

Return on Investment

Clover

  • Definitely makes us look more professional, and we are able to handle products much smoother and faster
  • The reporting allows us to see what is really selling and how much money we have actually made, which is also great, especially when you are selling things you have made or grown because you may not always have an inventory, but you can tell how much you've sold.
  • We can't pause the fees for the "off-season," so it definitely is wasted money during those times.

PayPal Here

  • PayPal Here is worth every penny. We aren't charged anything more than processing fees and for those people that have PayPal accounts when they donate it costs us nothing, which is a money saver.
  • Also, we have access to the donations collected within 1-2 business days via direct deposit, and having access to capital sooner increases our ability to meet our campaign goals.
  • PayPal Here is also cheaper than ActBlue, the leading donation collection mechanism for Democratic campaigns. Additionally, the donations are bundled and sent to us via paper check once a week which causes a delay in access to funds and requires trips to the bank.
