Works great!

I do a lot of selling and trading online... of Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards... well, I've been using PayPal for quite some time and when it asked if I'd like to upgrade for free, I said sure. I was very unbelieving of them sending me a card scanner for free but I got it and haven't been charged for it or anything. I guess it makes sense since the more money I make, they make. Esther way, being able to make little categories and add-ons to them is really fun and has got me really thinking about opening up a small business! Thank you PayPal for alway helping me pay for things online, hopefully you will help me charge people in person in the future!

How to Take Payment

Plug in card reader. Wait a minute or two for app to detect reader. Don’t even try to record a cash transaction without the reader as this will crash app. Swipe card and say a Hail Mary. If you’re lucky payment will go through. If not, the app will crash then you’ll have to reassure your customer that his card wasn’t charged. Restart app while making small talk with the customer looking at his watch. Try fiddling around with the reader until it’s detected by the app. Swipe card again. Keep repeating until transaction goes through.

I’ve used Square and Pay Anywhere — PayPal Here is by far the most buggy. Maybe I got a defective reader but I’ve gone through 3 and had the same problem with each.

Update 3.2.3 is functional and now what I expected.

Last week, PayPal released version 3.2.3 and broke the sales history UI, making it unusable.

I logged a complaint and received a response after a very short time. They indicated they were aware of the problem and working to resolve it. after only 3 days, the sales UI had returned to its functional state.

Thank you PayPal, once again, you have met the expectations that brought me to PayPal from a competitor's solution.
