One of the Best Platforms for Online Payment

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I love PayPal. Using it is as easy as browsing the internet. I can receive and request payment from clients all over the world in few minutes as it is accepted in almost all country. It's also easy to track incomes and financial activities. PayPal has made my professional life a lot easier.

Pros:

As a part-time freelancer, I have clients from many countries and I use PayPal most of the time to receive money. With PayPal, I can receive money, request money from clients and send invoices instantly to clients and all at a very low cost. I also feel that my information is secure on PayPal as they are a bit ahead in Information Security than other similar platforms. It is also easy to shop online using PayPal as it is accepted in almost all major platforms. Paypal has great and minimal User Interface, so it's very intuitive to use it. The feature I like most is that we can create a PayPal.me payment URL and also embed it in websites. I also like that we can create a pool and then pay in a team.

Cons:

Sometimes they lock your account for unknown reasons and it can be frustrating but those things are necessary to keep scammers and fraud out of PayPal so they aren't big deal. However, I have experienced bad errors a few time during checkout. I don't know why it happens but has happened multiple times to me.

Fastest and most secure online payment

5.0 last month New

Comments: After using it for a few years, I haven't had any issues with online payments until now. Because it's quick and safe, it's a wonderful option for online payment.

Pros:

Transferring funds to other e-wallets is simple, fast and safe.

Cons:

Their processing fees are exorbitant when transferring payments, and their customer service is really poor; thus, they need to improve for their users.

Too much transaction fees and lower conversion rates

3.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: It was good until I came across Payoneer and Wise.

Pros:

I like the instant payment to my Paypal account without sharing an invoice. But this feature is available on all other providers such as Payoneer and Wise.

Cons:

Too much transaction fees and lower conversion rates. Almost 10% on each transaction is too much. I have now moved to Payoneer and Wise.
