PayPal target tradesmen with new ad for PayPal Here

No primary category set

PayPal have published a video on Youtube that promotes their PayPal Here service to tradesmen.

We have no idea where this ad will be airing (maybe you’ve seen it?) but it’s promoting their October deal for half price Here handsets.

Now, I must say, I find this PayPal Here service extremely nifty. With just a web connection, the handset and a compatible device like a smartphone you can start taking card payments wherever you are. Well, phone signal permitting. I’ve seen and heard of all sorts of people using them: cab drivers, people at craft fayres, car boaters and the like.

It’s well worth checking out and at £50 that handset should pay for itself in no time.

  1. My barber has one now.

    Paypal is phenomenal, no surprise it’s splitting from the bay, it’s destined for greater things.

    Pissed me off, bought our’s for £69.95, then next day they offer it for £49.95

    if paypal issued card readers free of charge Surely the commission on payments would pay for itself in no time , not to mention market share and exposure?
    plus the economy of scale would make production costs that much less?

  4. we have to say at any price other than free we would feel robbed ,considering the amount of commission paypal receives from us each month

  5. I think its only a matter of time before they start giving them away for free. In fact as soon as sales hit a certain amount on business accounts they should probably send out one automatically anyway.
