very rare for me to talk about my personal experience with software

For the many years, I have used PayPal for my payments both as a merchant and a buyer, the new development on PayPal-Checkout has given me a true and new experience. As a frequent shopper with PayPal set as my payment option, using PayPal-Checkout have given me choice, control and freedom for easy payment. When I visit most of my shopping sites, I realized the situation was the same and the payment process completed in minutes and in very easy steps.

Pros

. It's very rare for me to talk about my personal experience with software but for PayPal-Checkout it will be an injustice if I maintain the silence. What I enjoyed most. The fact that I didn't have to get back to my PayPal account in order to initiate payment securely was a life-changing experience for me. All the necessary steps for the PayPal-Checkout are automated and I don't have to provide the information manually whenever I need to make payment. A secure connection is offered and the billing information together with shipping automatically generated at a click of a button. What a nice experience? Thanks to technology. I already had a PayPal account at the time I discovered about the PayPal-Checkout making me enjoy an easy time to make all my payment. The software is very greats since it doesn't transfer any cost to the buyer when used for making payment hence very cost effective. When I first interacted with the platform and I was able to receive all the information including the payment transaction ID which proved it was now more real to me. Since I use the same software to receive payment, the steps to enable my API setting and access were very easy when I created my online store. The checkout option supports may merchants and I was able to receive payment and notifications at the right time.

Cons

Some of the limitations. No perfect platform can be without a few loopholes and this is some of the disadvantages I have experience when using PayPal-Checkout sing. You must have a PayPal account to enjoy convince caused, the connection can be affected by slow internet connection and inability to pay merchants without ready APIs. In my opinion, PayPal-Checkout is the greatest move that has happened in our time hence we must embrace it.

PayPal Commerce is Business Friendly and Easy to Use.

I use it for business and it works very easy to get and receive orders as well as send invoices.

Pros

The invoicing, the multiple ways to get paid, and the able to ship with ease are the best features.

Cons

The worse part is that it doesn't save your transactions after a certain amount of time.

PayPal is an excellent payment processo

Pros

Online money transfers are made incredibly simple by PayPal. PayPal supports more than 13 different currencies, allowing us to send and receive money from anywhere in the world. Making a Paypal account is simple; all you need to do is register, just like when you sign up for a website. PayPal offers the option to link your bank account with your paypal account, allowing you to transfer funds from your paypal balance to your bank account. Money sent to us from other countries can be received immediately and without any delays. Simply providing our PayPal email address

Cons

they tend to limit our accounts easily especially when a large sum of funds come through it which can become frustrating

Terrible customer support

Pros

Used by a lot of people.
Easy to integrate to my online store

Cons

They limited my account which has literally paused my business activity. The reason for it? No proof of address. I have given them the bills, utility statements, government documents, even the tenancy agreement and a letter from the owner showcasing the proof of address and yet still they fail to accept it and give me an accurate reason why. Stupid!

Not to mention they LOST 500USD of my money and blamed it on my bank. I went to the bank and talked to the branch manager in which we concluded the money has not gone in. PAYPAL failed to provide enough evidence showcasing that they even started the transaction. Every time I bring it up they tell me that it is my bank's fault - same response each time.

I will be moving to STRIPE purely because PAYAL customer service is terrible. I want my money removed from PAYAL as soon as possible - if they will even let me.

If you value your money and information DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT go with PAYPAL.

They are almost a scam.
