PayPal Here is very similar to Square Register, except that funds are usually available right away in your PayPal account. Also, customers have more options to pay you - credit/debit card, checking account, or directly from their PayPal balance. If you have a PayPal debit card, you're able to access funds much faster, in most cases, than with Square Register. All card swipes and PayPal transactions have a 2.7 percent rate with no hidden fees or commitments.
What is it about?
With PayPal Here and a card reader, you can fully support point-of-sale transactions. You can allow your customers to pay how they want, whether it's directly from their PayPal account or using a physical way to pay. PayPal Here supports credit and debit cards and even checks. With the optional PayPal Chip Card Reader, you can accept NFC payments like Apple Pay, magnetic swipe cards, and even chip cards. Payments are processed and transferred to your account within minutes, and the PayPal Debit Card gives you immediate access to the funds most of the time, plus cash back.
Why we love it
PayPal makes it easy to get paid, and their chip reader is state-of-the-art. Pairing your PayPal account with the company's debit card makes it easy to get access to your funds right away, or you can transfer the money to your bank account.
