Top hit from Mr Google is merchantmaverick.com/paypal-vs-stripe. Mr Merchantmaverick concludes it’s a tie, except PayPal is easier for non-techy merchants.
Mr MM also reviews pointofsale (POS) tool Vend, which is a pal of PayPal’s, and Shopify, which is better than either PayPal or Stripe.
Have just ordered a PayPal Here card reader (£54 incl VAT) to take card and contactless payments via Android phone. No monthly fee. 2.75% per transaction with no fixed term. Next step: sign up for a PayPal Here account…
I also managed, somewhat inadvertently, to sign up to a 14-day trial of Vend, which claims to help you “Effortlessly sell, manage, report and grow your retail business in every way with Vend’s unmatched POS, multi-outlet retail and inventory management system.” Unfortunately, Vend does not work on Android: it’s aimed at iPad users and can also work on Google Chrome on a PC.
