PayPal’s Here credit card reader finally works on Android tablets

PayPal has long been one of the most popular ways to make and receive payments on Android, but with one major drawback. The PayPal Here, PayPal’s mobile card reader, has never been compatible with Android tablets, for some reason. Today is the day that it changes!

With the Android app paired with Here, PayPal gives businesses the ability to:

  • Accept credit cards, debit cards and mobile payments
  • Monitor sales activity (with deep insights and reporting features)
  • Customize the selling process – with the ability to enter different taxes, discounts and tips

All of these features have been available on Android phones and iOS devices previously, but this is the first time we’re seeing the functionality on Android tablets.

Have you used the PayPal Here card reader? Do you think you’ll use it more often now that it’s available for Android tablets?
