    • for Small Business Owners WhyWe Chose PayPal Here
    • PayPal Here was our top choice among mobile credit card processors. Set up is fast and free, it’s easy to use, and is compatible with the largest number of devices. With Papal here you get access to your money within minutes. PayPal here is one of the lowest cost providers, pricing is straightforward and your can enhance customer service by offering multiple payment options.
    • Does PayPal Here have drawbacks? Holding procedures can block access to funds and it isn’t compatible with Android tablets. Overall, however, with a Better Business Bureau rating of A+, we feel that PayPal Here is the top mobile credit card processing provider for small business.
    • VS In-Depth Review
    • Ease of Use
    • It takes just a few minutes to get up and running with PayPal Here from many kinds of Apple and Android devices and you can start processing payments easily.
 
 It’s free to set up and does not require a merchant account PayPal Here:
    • Is that if you get stuck during set-up or when you’re processing, you can access live phone support, unlike with Square. The Big Plus
    • Square:Getting set up and taking mobile payments takes just a few minutes with Square and doesn’t require the hassle of setting up a merchant account. 
 
 Without an abundance of features to figure out, this is a fast and simple solution for many businesses.
    • is that if you do run into a problem, you’ll have to figure it out for yourself. There is no live customer support by phone though there is email support. One major con
    • Here, set up requires a little more time and thought, as you need to set up a merchant account and decide on one of two plans.
 
 Taking the time to grasp the payment structure, and what it means to your business if you’re dealing with rewards based credit cards and American Express, will require some number crunching. Intuit GoPayment:
    • Though this platform requires a merchant account, once you have set up your merchant account it is also easy to set up and use within minutes. Additional features can take some time to learn, but live phone support helps with that process. PayAnywhere:
    • Pricing
    • Free set up, app and card reader with fairly standard pricing of swiped US cards at 2.7%, keyed rate/scan 3.5% + $0.15 and a swipe rate of 3.7% for non US cards. Check the User Agreement for exceptional and fine details. PayPal Here:
    • Free set up, app and card reader. The swipe rate is 2.75% and the keyed rate 3.75% + $0.15, no matter what kind of card you use. ! Square no longer offers the flat rate monthly fee of $275. It was dropped in late 2013. Here’s the Square User Agreement. Square:
    • Pricing for Intuit GoPayment requires some special thought. There’s the free app and card reader version, which results in a swipe rate of 2.75% and a keyed rate of 3.75%. The other option is the monthly $12.95 version, with a swipe rate of 1.75% and a keyed rate of 2.75%. If you’re doing more than approximately $1,500 USD/ month the paid version may be a better option. ! Here is Intuit GoPayment’s User Agreement. Intuit GoPayment:
    • The least expensive option for those doing $2,000/month or less, this platform also offers a free set up, app and card reader. Swipe rates are 2.69%, a half percent below PayPal Here, with the keyed rate at 3.49% (also a half percent below PayPal Here) + $0.19 ($0.40 higher than PayPal Here). ! Here’s PayAnywhere’s user agreement. PayAnywhere:

    • Your customers can pay with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and of course, PayPal. You can also accept electronic checks (US) and track cash payments. Extra charges apply to non-US cards. PayPal Here:

    • Speed of Access to Money
    • Using a PayPal account, or the PayPal debit MasterCard, you can access your money within minutes of deposit. To transfer to a linked bank account takes 3-5 business days. Something that merchants should be aware of is the practice of putting holds funds, which can last from seven to 30 days, or up to 180 days. PayPal Here:
    • Part of Square’s customer promise is next day deposit. It can take between 1 and 2 business days for funds to be deposited. Square recently removed the practice of regularly holding funds, but they can (and do) hold transactions that are deemed suspicious. Square:
    • Funds are available in 2-4 business days, with only suspicious transactions being held. Intuit GoPayment:
    • This is one of the fastest services with deposits funds in a single business day. Holds can be an issue and there are many online customer reviews complaining of large transactions being frozen for extended periods of time. PayAnywhere:
    • Integration
    • This works with QuickBooks, Excel and services like NCR Silver sales products. PayPal Here: Integrations include QuickBooks, Xero and some customized solutions.

    • Not as rich as PayPal Here, Square does offer some important extras. These include a tipping option, creating online receipts, setting up customer loyalty programs and adding inventory shelves. Square:
