Takes a long time to get set up to use the PayPal Here. We tried to set it up for cashing out an auction. We set it up a day and a half in advance, but it still was not set up in time for the auction, and so I had to log in with my personal PalPal account which I had set up last year, then transfer the money to the PayPal account it was supposed to go to in the first place.
It also crashed the app 3 times during the course of cashing the auction out (approx 1 hour).
In addition to this, it’s really tricky to get the card to swipe just right, and even thought it asks for a description of the item, when you swipe the card, that description shows up nowhere in the email that PayPal sends you, the seller, when the transaction goes through. Very frustrating, and not well thought out.
Needs some improvements
Refund options need to be added to transactions paid in cash.... There is no way of refunding a buyer who paid in cash allowing them gain access to a receipt showing there cash refund also allowing me to see that refunded transaction in my sales. Add the refund option to cash payments as well. Also give quantity capabilities to keep track of items in stock. Also details of items would also be convenient. For instance if a merchant sells items in packages, when that package is selected the items within that packaged should automatically show up in the transaction rather than picking these items 1 by 1 to complete a package.
Don't trust the check scanning.
The app seems to work fine however PayPal's check cashing procedures are unreliable. On two occasions, the money never landed in my PayPal account. When I inquired with PayPal customer service, they simply told me to cash the checks through my normal bank if their check cashing process hadn't worked within 15 days. They don't have any sort of a reconciliation process to confirm that all the checks you scan are truly deposited in your account. You'll never get any notification of a failure . The money simply won't go into your account. I would expect some sort of notification if there was a problem with one of my scanned checks.
