About PayPal Zettle

The PayPal Here app is a mobile point of sale (POS) software designed to help businesses securely process debit or credit card payments, generate invoices, and record cash or check transactions. The application enables retailers and manufacturers to create and organize product lists and add details including photos and descriptions.

Administrators can use the application to track sales, automatically calculate taxes as per the local rates, and generate sales reports in real-time. PayPal Here allows organizations to generate invoices with business logos, contact information, and custom fields and share them with customers via email. It also lets employees add, edit, or remove inventory items, include tips or gratuity in financial transactions, and provide discounts during the checkout processes.

PayPal Here facilitates integration with various accounting and point of sale (POS) solutions, enabling businesses to synchronize data transfer across systems. Other features include billing, reporting, automated reminders, permission management, customizable templates, PCI compliance review, user controls, and more.

Cons

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. NO CONS! WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?

Quickest Way to Accept Payment with Cards

Reviewed on 25/12/2019

PayPal Here makes it super simple to accept payment from my customers. I like that it's linked directly to my PayPal account and that funds are available immediately. Before I started using PayPal Here, I would have customers ask to Cash.app me funds or send them via Venmo. The downside to this was that it wasn't necessarily professional and I had to wait for funds to be transferred to my bank account.

Pros

PayPal Here is by far the quickest way to accept payment from customers with credit/debit cards. I'm particularly referring to the speed in which funds are available for spending. It's very simple to swipe the customer's card or enter their payment information and then almost instantly have access to those funds. I the earlier days of PayPal Here, I was one of the fortunate people that received a free card reader. This came in handy as all I had to do was plug it into my iPad and simply swipe the customer's card.

The app is somewhat customizable, too. For example, you can specify whether or not you want to require a customer's signature for certain purchase amounts. Also, the app integrates with PayPal Inventory Management as an added convenience if desired.

Cons

The only thing I really dislike about the app is the fact that I am charged a higher percentage on the fee if I manually input the customer's credit/debit card information as opposed to just swiping their card. Sometimes I feel that this is an unfair thing - especially in cases where the customer's card is not properly reading when swiped in the card reader. Lastly, PayPal no longer provides free card readers (unless you're a new user). So, if you need a new, updated card reader you'll have to pay for it.

Reasons for Choosing PayPal Zettle

Cash.app wasn't a professional way of accepting payment and it didn't really create a legitimate record as far as business deals were concerned. Plus, I had to wait for money to be transferred to my bank before having access to the funds.

Reasons for Switching to PayPal Zettle

I already had a PayPal account, so PayPal Here definitely was the easiest way to go.

I started with Paypal 10 months ago when registering the account. I noticed a lot of procedures that I used to do in the beginning. They were redundant, but later I learned that they are very important because they help secure your account. Paypal is very secure. It uses 2FA.talking about transactions, paypal is Very fast in sending, receiving and paying with the application on the android and ios systems which makes the use easy. Paypal always updates the conditions in order to maintain the quality of the service with good customer service and very fast, for me in my work life Paypal represents a large part of my work as You can create a business type account that provides you with a lot of tools to connect your business with the application, I think it is the best so far

Pros

Paypal is very fast and easy to using more than others

Cons

The commission for direct withdrawal to a bank account or bank card is $5, which is somewhat high

If one does not care about interaction with this type company you have found your match. Bought a piece of software and used it or attempted to. Customer service attempted to install it for me and could not get it to work. I finally gave up and Paddle.com/Paypal would not refund even given the fact that their staff had attempted to get it installed. Paypal stated that downloaded software is deemed to have been delivered and refused to work out a sensible solution.

Pros

The ability to pay without exposing my credit cards to potential hackers carries a semblance of comfort!

Cons

They were absolutely the best until Synchrony became part of the package. Since this marriage customers get stonewalled and even though I had been a customer for over 17 years they decided (because I sometimes use a VPN) to cancel my use of the program. In the bylaws, they are required to send an explanation of any changes to your account. Which I still have not received! You really have not lived until you attempt to contact them when you have a problem. It took 4 days of leaving messages through email and no one could even offer a reason. After being a customer for 17 years one would think at least an email attempting to inquire about the problem would have been forthcoming! But I guess that exceeds their care to maintain a relationship.

It allowed us to make sales without having to accept credit cards and potentially get a card reader. For our small volume this was perfect!

Pros

Easy to use and understand. No problem setting up. Can get up and running quickly to make sales.

Cons

There were no cons for our needs as we just required basic features. For high volume with a lot of returns I'm not sure what the turn around time is on returns.
