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?
PayPal is a terrific way to get paid online, but what about in person? With PayPal here, you can do that, transforming your iPad into a great point-of-sale system. The app is free, and so is the magstripe card reader. If you want to accept chip cards with full security and fraud protection, a small up-front fee gets you a Bluetooth reader that works perfectly for your business. Accept payments, manage your online and mobile transactions, and get help straight from the app. You get your money fast, especially if you have the PayPal Debit card.
Why we love it
PayPal is a great option for collecting credit card and other payments. The PayPal Debit Card makes it easy to use your funds right away, and offers what might be the only cash back incentive program for small businesses that don't use a major credit card.
