Pros and Cons

  • PayPal is a trusted brand so people are comfortable using PayPal Here to make donations.
  • The PayPal Here app is very easy to navigate.
  • The PayPal Here card reader works very well and is small, which makes it convenient to use on the go.
  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • It is incredibly easy to accept donations via card for our organization. It usually takes 3 minutes or less.
  • It allows for easy collection of information we must report for campaign finance reporting and compliance.
  • It is exceptionally easy if the donor already has a PayPal account. Donations are collected in record time without the need to collect any additional information except the donor's employer and occupation. The other information needed is already stored in their account.
  • Usually, if there is any delay in donation processing it has to do with the speed at which a credit transaction is processed, but I know part of that is the strength of the internet connection.
  • While it is user-friendly, it does require some training for people that have never used it before to ensure donations are processed correctly. It usually takes a few uses before newer employees feel comfortable using it with confidence.

PayPal Here may or may not allow you to even accept payments

Pros and Cons

  • The user interface is very easy to use and intuitive.
  • The free card reader is invaluable to businesses that choose not to invest in more expensive options. The cost for entry is not a roadblock to accepting payments.
  • The PayPal here app is compatible with different operating systems, so it doesn't matter if you have an iPhone or an Android.
  • While swiped payments are easy, manual entry of payment information often fails. This is a major roadblock when you are in the service industry because not everyone who is making payment is on site.
  • In almost every instance of accepting a payment, we have to call in and reverify every piece of information about our business before we are successful.
  • Whatever system they use to determine how high risk your business is can limit your usage if they get it wrong.
  • Customer service is inconsistent at best. Sometimes issues are handled quickly and easily, other time you have to jump through hoops.

Pros and Cons

  • Our customers can check out no matter where we are.
  • It is incredibly easy to use. Training new retail employees and volunteers takes almost no time.
  • When we were shopping around for solutions, Paypal Here was very cost effective.
  • Implementation with our current systems went very smoothly. The Paypal support team was great.
  • There are times where we have connectivity issues. I am not sure this falls directly on Paypal, but some sort of solution for times when there is poor cellular or internet coverage would be nice.
  • We really haven't had too many issues with the actual product. It does exactly what we were looking for.

Pros and Cons

  • On the go - can bring anywhere and still swipe peoples card.
  • Easy to use - plug it in the phone and swipe away.
  • Fees are cheap. You won't lose out on money by using PayPal here.
  • No offline mode. You have to have service to swipe someone's card.
  • Customer support could be better at times.
  • And then there are fees if they are not using US cards. Which is not that big of a deal because it only happens every once in a while.

Pros and Cons

  • Taking credit card payments in person. Very handy for live events.
  • No set up fees or monthly fees for the paypal here app
  • Low transaction fees.
  • I don't believe you can set up monthly billing from the paypal here app.
  • I use the Paypal from a web browser more than I use the app
  • Sometimes the finger print scanner doesn't come up and I have to type in my password. No big deal.
