About PayPal

PayPal is a digital payment platform that enables businesses and individuals to pay and accept payments through an online portal without revealing any financial details. The solution is suitable for businesses of all sizes. PayPal provides a one-touch login process, so there is no need to re-enter information. For individuals, users can shop as well as process transactions overseas by linking their card details through PayPal’s portal. For business owners, users can accept international payments from banks or digital wallets on through the portal. They can bill the clients, receive direct payments from suppliers or manufacturers and accept payments from more than 200 markets with a single account. PayPal charges a transaction fee, which is calculated based on businesses’ total sales volumes. The system is compatible with mobile devices.

Impossible not to use it

Pros

Those who buy online frequently know this online payment system well, you register once, save your preferred payment method and pay with a couple of clicks!

Cons

For those who start, their collection commissions are a little higher than their competitors

Paypal is enough.

Pros

I appreciate being a personal Paypal customer for years. Converting to business has helped serve others that may not be comfortable with paying through other portals. Paypal helps protect the customer > the vendor, and this is important to people (I know, as I feel the same way as a consumer.) I appreciate that Paypal does have a bi-functional feature to collect and send invoices, as well as payments.

Cons

Customer service with Paypal has diminished over the years. The ease of the mobile site is not as great as the browser, and unfortunately, sometimes you need to rely on the ability of your phone to optimally function.

Alternatives Considered

Stripe and Venmo

Reasons for Choosing PayPal

I used Paypal as a consumer.

Reasons for Switching to PayPal

When it comes to high capacity transactions, consumers tend to feel more comfortable with Paypal as a known brand.

Best platform to receive in different currencies

I've been using paypal since 2015 and I can receive payments from different countries without any problem. Conversion is automatic and payment is always very fast. It is a useful and necessary platform for anyone working with online services.

Pros

The biggest positive point is that you can transfer or pix with cents, I believe that makes PayPal the best payment platform in the world, because in addition to automatically converting the currency, you transfer any amount and still receive quickly in your account. Other platforms tend to have a very high minimum withdrawal amount.

Cons

I personally never had a problem with PayPal, but my mom opened an account and ended up getting the last name wrong, she called support and it took weeks to fix it, so she sent a message via chat and they fixed it right away. I found the difference in answering the phone via chat very discrepant.

Pay Pal User

Pay Pay is a saver software to transfer money online. I would recommend Pay Pal users to keep using it because transaction fees are cheaper.

Pros

I Have used Pay Pal to make transfers. I have transferred money online to my friends, paid for products, and paid for research paper publications. I have found it convenient because it only allows me to make transections at my workplace rather than going to the bank for banking needs.

Cons

I haven't taken an opportunity to generate money from Pay Pal although there is make money using features. It has not been clear how I can make money using Pay Pal software.
