PayPal Here Credit Card Reader for Laptop and Desktop Computers – (Windows and MAC!)

PayPal Here and USBSwiper Point of Sale Solution

So you’ve gotten all set up with PayPal’s new PayPal Here credit card processing system for smartphones. You have downloaded the software, received and plugged in the swiper and off you go, right?

You may not have thought about some of the drawbacks to using a cell phone or iPad device to accept and process credit cards and you just might find yourself asking questions like:

  • What do I do if I lose cell phone reception?
  • What If I don’t want to hand my cell phone to a customer for them to sign on it?
  • What if the customer drops my phone and ends up breaking it?
  • Why didn’t anyone tell me that the credit card reader won’t work on my particular model Android device? I now have to either manually type in or key the credit card information into my phone or buy another compatible phone! These manually entered transactions cost a higher 3.50% plus 20 cent processing rate and I’ll also have to pay that same high rate for Non Qualified Credit Cards such as Rewards Cards, Business Cards and more!!

So you might be asking yourself, is there something that is more like a traditional point of sale system that I can still use with my PayPal account where I can still use my smartphone or tablet but also my computer or laptop? A system that I can swipe and process credit cards using a card reader plugged into my laptop or desktop computer and print receipts for the customer to sign just like at a regular store?

The answer is YES! With the USBSwiper System you can have a more traditional credit card processing system using just your computer (Windows or MAC), a small USB credit card reader with the USBSwiper Software interface and just print receipts with my regular printer or other optional, inexpensive peripherals such as small thermal receipt printers and bar code scanners to give you that big store look and feel as well as a bit more piece of mind that you won’t be without your cell phone if someone accidentally breaks it.

As long as you have internet connection you can process credit card transactions in real time. Also, if you lose internet, you can still create invoices and process them later when you’re re-connected.

Because the system is connected to your PayPal account you will still get all the great reporting you are used to and great flat rates from PayPal. Being software based, the system will also allow you to export data for reporting and tracking as well as many other features.

  1. Does your laptop swiper work with PayPal here?

    • Thank you for your inquiry.

      The PayPal Here application will not work with a card reader on a computer.

      The only solution for using a card reader on a computer and linked to your PayPal account would be our USBSwiper Software and Card Reader Solution for PayPal.

      You would need a specific type of PayPal account to be able to use this solution.

      If you already have PayPal Payments Pro, PayPal PayFlow Pro or PayPal Virtual Terminal, then you can use this solution. If you do not have one of these accounts, and have not already spoken to a PayPal representative regarding one of these accounts, please call us as we may be able to get you setup on one of them at a reduced cost.

      If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
