Overall Satisfaction with PayPal Here

Paypal Here was used for the first time by the nonprofit I volunteered for taking in registration and membership in an art show. This was the first time we had opted to take credit cards for the organisation.
  • Easy to use and understand interface
  • Versatility across devices and through the dashboard
  • Easy to understand terms
  • This is a service best for small non-profits and self-employed artists.
  • Reliant on wifi or mobile access
  • Opens up the possibilities of taking payments other than cash or checks
  • Allows for last minute registration and memberships at shows and functions
  • Square
I find that PayPal Here works better as a self-employed or non-profit; it's simple, clean cut, and is a recognised brand throughout places like Etsy and eBay. PayPal Here feels like it's geared more towards the every person, especially artists and artisans. While I do use PayPal for my storefront business, it is mostly for purchases only, as Square seems to be more geared towards business models.
This is a great tool for artists, crafters, and non-profits to take credit card payments or paypal transfers on the go, to pay for goods, services, and memberships.
