- Bug fixes and improvements
This is the business app, pay attention.
Seriously, so many people gave it one star because of their own ignorance. The PayPal app is called paypal. PayPal here is their business service to use their card reader. It asks for that information because it's for business use and needs to be logged. The microphone has to be on for the reader to work. This isn't some big elaborate scam to get your social, lease do just a little research before opening your mouth.
As for the app itself, I have had no trouble with it so far, I like the layout though it's not as smooth as square. It's convenient because I only do a few credit cards a month and the charge is per transaction, so it's simple. I run a small computer shop and this allows me to take cards on site really easily. A must have for anyone who needs to take cards on the go.
Won't work because of location service
I only do a few credit card sales a year and paypal here is great because it only charges per transaction. But every time but once it goes to the page that says turn in location service. The service is on, and I turn it off then on and it works for a few seconds and if I'm fast enough I can get the transaction done after a few tries. It is really frustrating. Because of this I am going to square. It does this if I have really fast internet and and use my iPad 4 or if I use slow internet and an iPad 1. So it's not my problem.
I love this app! I use it all the time for my farmers market and craft events! I keep track of every single transaction even when they pay with cash. One suggestion would be for it to also keep inventory, if it could be linked to each transaction so I don't have to keep counting how much of each items were sold and how much of each items I have left.
