Overall Satisfaction with PayPal Payments

As a solo small business owner, PayPal is the best solution in my local market to accept payments online from clients and offline using my card reader for local or older clients. I always have a way to get paid even when I'm not near a computer or laptop. I can also securely keep track of my purchases with accurate and robust reporting.
  • Multiple ways to pay
  • Detailed reporting and analytics
  • Accepted virtually everywhere payments are accepted
  • Quick and easy invoices
  • More support for sellers over buyers. Lots of room for scammers to take advantage of buyers as PayPal almost always sides with the buyer.
  • Easier access to pre-approved payments & subscriptions.
  • Payments processed with a relatively low transaction fee.
  • Funds moved into you account of choice within a day or less.
All options are great and depends on the owners preference but PayPal is still a bigger household name and is more likely to be chosen by clients for a familiar way to pay.
The support has come through more times than they've failed. During business hours you can contact the support by phone or through the message center in your account. Phone contact already populates by your number.

Since most checkouts on the web offer some sort of PayPal payment option, most solo and small business owners can get started accepting payments same day as sign-up. The fact that you can create an invoice in under 10-15 seconds or less and send it off is also a huge plus. The mobile apps for PayPal and PayPal Here work very well together when you're being a boss on the move!
