    Missing customer name and receipt options since update. (06/30/20) The customer names is likely a database issue on the server side, but the receipt screen not popping up with "always display options" enabled since the update. Talked with customer support and had to convince them there is a problem because it worked on one S7 they used to test. Tried it on an S6, Note 8, Note 9, S10+, S205G, and a generic android device without it showing a receipt screen, unless voiding a transaction.

  • Used to be good Sep 2, 2019

    I have had this app for almost 10 years never had a problem until about a year an half ago. I have called and reported a lot of times. I am a street vendor and numerous times I run a card and it will say “card declined”. I’m not Walmart it is a personal experience, 1 on 1 with a customer so they won’t give me a card they know won’t work. I have come to the conclusion that unless the app can access the customers card info it will automatically say “card declined”. There is an override within settings to “force feed” the transaction but it doesn’t work. Last Saturday ran 2 transactions went fine, 10 minutes later declined a card and then another. Called and talked to this girl she finally told me I would have to upgrade to an iPad 3 in order for the app to work as the app did not support the iPad 2 like I have. So why did the first 2 transactions work?. Stupidest thing I ever heard. Going to change this week before Saturday

  • New update has screwed up taxes! Feb 2, 2018

    By Chapwoman
    I have been happy with the functionality of this app until their recent update in feb 2018. It will not calculate tax correctly. It does not add the decimal in. We should be 5.3% but it only does 5.0%. This seems like a no brainer fix (I used chat yesterday to try to resolve and she had to put in an IT ticket). Also the update is supposed to incorporate 2 factor authentication but it doesn't seem to use it. I hope they can fix this quick because I liked it until now.

  • Great app May 15, 2018

    The nice thing about PayAnywhere is the support you get from using the app. I used Square for three years until a sales agent approached me about using PayAnywhere. At first, I didn’t want to change because I was so used to Square but when the rep told me I didn’t have to pay the merchant processing fee anymore with PayAnywhere because it has a cash discount feature, I made the switch and couldn’t be happier. Not only can I call someone if I have an issue but I no longer have to pay the fee that Square charges which is well above the 2.75% they fraudulently advertise. Wish I had used PayAnywhere from the beginning!

  • Unreliable and difficult to work with Sep 6, 2018

    By abigailrose3
    New update is not easier. My day is filled with little stressors because my application and card reader do not connect. I have to log out of the app, log back in, and hope that it is connecting with the card reader. The new card reader is Bluetooth and the reliability is about 30% that it connects. I’m using an iPad. I put in manually half of the time because the card reader doesn’t work and I get flak when I call and tell them that it’s their software that’s the issue. I have to fight to get the percentage back for putting it in manually when it was their software that was the issue. There have been times when I haven’t gotten money back over this and I’m tired of the daily stressors. I’ve had this company for a couple of years and it is never been smooth. They try to hide the fees and don’t give out a monthly report. It’s very hard to find out how much they’re taking. My bookkeeping is clean I need reports, It doesn’t seem like they want to make my life easier… They’re more interested in hiding their fees from me.

    I have never had an issue with this service. I process CCs via my smart phone and via my computers on a regular basis, and have been doing so for about a year. I really like the reasonable fees compared to the last co. I was using. Keep up the good work.

  • Great app! Jan 10, 2018

    By Fly321
    Had this app for years and have had no problems getting paid. I don’t know what all the negative reviews are for. Either their plain old stupid users or just want to put down a good provider. I’ve had no problems with customer service and get all my emails answered. Every app in the world has glitches sometimes. I use this app every day and love it and so don’t my customers. If you can add 2+2 you can use this app easily. It’s safe and secure. I recommend them. Now let me make some more money! See ya!

  • Cheaper Than Square! Nov 23, 2019

    By 209Pinky
    We were contacted by a local company and they told us about PayAnywhere as we were currently using Square and they had just raised their rates. We were hesitant but so glad we made the switch! It has saved us so much money and also start using the cash discount feature so now we are saving even more. We are using it in a coffee shop, my only complaint is I wish it had gift cards or some type of loyalty built in

  • Grrrr! To Purrr! Jul 13, 2018

    By kringie
    My quilt guild has used Pay Anywhere to process credit card payments for a variety of purposes. In June, I had a less than stellar experience, and posted a negative review. Since changing CC processing providers would be a painful experience, I decided to invest some unencumbered time to try to get it working correctly, preferably with the Bluetooth reader. (I hate the audio jack version) What I found is that the pop-up instructions to connect the reader in your Bluetooth settings is misleading - at least as far as my Apple devices go (iPhone 6s and iPad Mini 4). On either of my devices, you have to go into the Pay Anywhere app settings to establish the connection. All that said, for the June meeting, I was able to connect my iPad Mini to the Bluetooth reader, and other than having a one-sided argument with the app over the presence of a chip on a card (it was well disguised) it behaved perfectly and swiftly as well. This camper is happy once again.

  • Best for small portable business Apr 5, 2018

    By sofiagirl
    Have had this app & account for many years, lots of newer features & reports too. Love being able to let my customers be able to buy more because of ability to process a CC on the spot. But company needs to get their CC chip readers out in more stores too. A few glitches on this updates, but always fixed later. And my deposit in 2-3 days. Reports not showing up. Please find a better way to get more security without me having to log in and get multiple verification meathods.

  • This allows me to accept credit card payment but... Feb 23, 2019

    By Nitesong1968
    This allows me to accept credit card payments, but It doesn’t allow me to go back and access any transactions except the last one. I haven’t used it in a while, but before I thought it allowed me to actually write up a bill with what was bought and I don’t find that now. I need to be able to track my transactions. Oh, and my card reader doesn’t seem to work anymore.

    We’ve had the 2in1 card reader to help save on the transaction fees but it’s not working and we end up having to to all the transactions manually. I’ve called several times and was told there’s a glitch in the update. Well it’s been weeks now and the problem still isn’t resolved.

    It used to be good ... been using it since it released in iOS ... the previous version light green was old but efficient .. Now this app has added a lot of new features which is greatly appreciated. TOO BAD SO MANY GLITCHES. In this advanced technology era this is a step down app... Look for a better choose please .

  • Good app, room for improvement Mar 1, 2014

    By Zzz1123456789
    I really enjoy using this app. The reader works much better than the square reader. Love the daily, weekly, monthly totals. I have had issues with it accepting some credit cards. It swipes fine but says declined. It's a Visa card... Should work. Even when i manually type it in it doesn't work. When you try and type in the billing street it only lets you use numbers, no letters. Needs to be fixed. Very very frustrating. So I have to switch to the square app which is frustrating for me and my client. I often run cards and then the clients ask where can I leave a tip? It shouldn't feel as though you are hiding the tip option from the client. Please make this more visible. It will make me more money and PayAnywhere more money. Everyone wins. Similar programs now sync to quick books. This would be a nice option to have. Not a deal breaker, but would be convenient. I really would like to continue using this app for all my transactions. Hopefully the kinks get worked out. But if it continues to decline credit cards, not allow me to manually enter information, and continually lose me money because of the tipping section then I'll probably try out another reader such as the Intuit app, which my colleague loves. I would like to continue to support PayAnwhere, please fix the issues.

    I may have to find another provider because there are constantly updating the software and then when you go to use it it has lots of problems. And its like why did I have to update? It was working perfectly fine before? Now you cause me all these problems and aggravation with my customers because now they have to wait for the transaction to process then I have to shut the phone off after each credit card use and start the phone over again too so it resets. Bottom line it's a pain in the ass.

    I am only giving this app a two becaus of the demand on updates. It doesn't give you the option to do so at a later, more convenient time. For this is not a respective approach in business.

  • Bluetooth Jan 6, 2018

    By poneiro
    It keeps disconnecting using Bluetooth. I have to constantly go to settings within the app every time it gets disconnected. It should be paired once, not every 30 minutes After of weeks of trying to find a solution to the disconnection problem, I found it. Need to go to pin settings and chose not to time out immediately, chose any other time. Timeout immediately shouldn’t be the default and is the reason is getting Bluetooth disconnected. Hopefully this help someone.
