App that allows photo capture in an app?


Tuesday 19th of February 2013 / androidtablets.net
Hi.First, thank you. Thanks to the people who help for the sake of helping. I hope you make a million dollars, because you're the people who are deserving.I have a nexus 7, and installed a PayPal here app that must be homemade. I didn't see it credited in the post (on this forum) where I found the DL link.My biggest use for the PayPal here app is to photograph a check for deposit on my PayPal acct... So I have been sifting thru webcam apps for rooted nexus 7s, but haven't found any that allow a photo capture in an app besides whatever webcam app is running.What forum should I post this request in to get a decent response (if a decent response even exists)-sen

PayPal 3.0 update include support for NFC


Tuesday 08th of November 2011 / androidguys.com
PayPal updated its Android application to v3.0 this morning and tossed in a number of handy features, most notably the ability to use NFC for request money from friends and other users. The new version also provides a completely overhauled landing screen, an easier way to send money, and auto-complete based on your address book.  Of course, what would an app update be without the requisite bug fixes and stability improvements?  Yep, those are here too.In order to use the new NFC feature you and a friend will each need any NFC-enabled Android phone and the PayPal app with the Request Money widget installed. Requesting money is a simple process: just enter an amount, and then tap phones. Once your friend receives the request they simply enter their password to send money.[app]com.paypal.android.p2pmobile[/app]New in the Android Market: Updated PayPal Mobile App Featuring P2P NFC CapabilitiesIt’s no secret that everyone’s talking about NFC, and rightfully so.

PayPal Buys Credit Card Scanning Startup Card.IO


Tuesday 17th of July 2012 / phandroid.com
PayPal announced via their blog today, that they have scooped up the San Francisco-based company Card.IO. You may remember their app, the one where you didn’t need a dongle (like those other guys) to make simple, hassle-free credit card transactions. Simply take a pic of the issuers credit card and boom — you were up and on your way. PayPal Vice President of Global Product said via the PayPal blog:I’m excited to announce that PayPal has acquired card.io, a San Francisco-based company that provides technology for developers to capture credit card information by using the camera on a smartphone.We first met with the team at card.io when we were working on integrating their technology into the PayPal Here mobile app. While working with them, we were simply blown away by the creativity and drive of their employees. They are a passionate and independent team that likes solving large, complex problems and we wanted them to join our team. Great people make great products and great products are what make companies great. The employees at card.io will be joining the PayPal glob

"PayPal Here" for Tablet?


Saturday 27th of October 2012 / androidtablets.net
I recently found "PayPal Here", which is a credit card processor/reader for smartphones. I'd love to use it with my Acer A200 tablet but PayPal says they don't support tablets. I cannot download the app from the google market. Why is that? Or...how is that? My tablet is simply a giant phone! Does anybody know if there is any way to get this working? Maybe some kind of hack?https://play.google.com/store/apps/d..._result#?t=W10.

PayPal Here mobile payment system gets demonstration video


Thursday 15th of March 2012 / androidheadlines.com
The folks over at the huge pay site PayPal have taken the wraps off of their new mobile payment system. Aiming to take on the popular Square Mobile Payments they are calling this new platform PayPal Here. With a triangle mobile card reader that clicks right into your smartphone, users of Ice Cream Trucks across the nation can be excited. The device pictured above plugs simply into the 3.5mm headphone jack and from there becomes a full on mobile payment solution. With the new PayPal Here app it makes everything dead simple, and extremely convenient. Obviously merchants can accept cash and such but what is the fun in that when you have this little gadget.

PayPal Here to Challenge Square for Mobile Payments


Thursday 15th of March 2012 / phandroid.com
Food truck owners rejoice! PayPal has introduced their own mobile card reader and payment service. Dubbed PayPal Here, the service is as straight forward as it can be. Merchants attach a credit card reader dongle (PayPal’s is shaped like a triangle and is blue) to their phones  and buyers swipe their card through to pay for goods or services. Beyond that, merchants can take checks and cash, and the app will allow them to log sales as they are made in order to keep the books up-to-date. PayPal challenges Square by offering a 2.7% transaction compared to 2.75%. It may not seem like much but every cent counts. Unfortunately, the app is only available on iOS but PayPal urges Android users to order the card reader anyway as an Android app will soon follow. Head to PayPal.com/here to get started.

Motorola Talks Android With PayPal Execs


Thursday 13th of August 2009 / phandroid.com
Yesterday we told you about some fun Motorola was having with their Android progress and explained that it likely signals much more. Today we wanted to share a more substantive blog post on the MotoDev Blog – a podcast they did with PayPal (listen below):It aired yesterday at noon and here is who you’ll hear when playing it back above:Randy Ksar, MotoDev Blog and Podcast FacilitatorKent Griffin, PayPal Mobile Senior Product ManagerFabio Sisinni, PayPal Mobile Director of StrategyMore of a laid back podcast and not a ton of information is revealed but here are some interesting tidbits if you’re not down with spending 30 minutes on audio:PayPal Android App took about 2 months to build and 1 month to tweak. It could have been done much quicker but with something as risky as online payments they wanted to make sure it was undeniably protected and secure.Pretty soon you’ll be able to use PayPal for Android APIs within your own Android application… and that is where things are going in general. It will gives developer another way to monetize their applications

PayPal Here and Galaxy S4


Monday 01st of July 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
PayPal has recognized that their Here credit card swipe reader doesn't work on the S4. Previously the swipe just didn't work. Now the app says it's incompatible with the device. They emailed me that they are working on an update for the app. (Earlier they had sent me a Here device with white insulators on the plug, which was supposed to be S4 compatible, but it was worse than the original Here.) The S4 is still not on their (linked from the app error message), so either they expect a quick fix or they haven't yet fixed the list. The app and reader work fine with my Verizon S4.

PayPal Here Direct Payment Service App Gets A Major Facelift And Dynamic Search In 2.0 Update


Tuesday 08th of April 2014 / feedproxy.google.com
PayPal's Here direct sale and money transfer service is an admirable rival to the similar Square, and before today its standard Android app was perfectly fine. But you can't deny that it looked a little... iPhoney. Thankfully the second release of the PayPal Here app brings the user interface more in line with other polished Android apps, and throws a little expanded functionality in for good measure. The whole app has been simplified and streamlined, according to the change log, and customers should now be able to swipe their credit or debit cards at any time during the purchasing process. (You know, like the better kind of retail PIN pads.) The customer entry, profiles, inventory system, and logins have all been simplified and sped up. Sellers can now search through orders and purchases from the app, and the cart view screen will show customers more information than before. Old screenshots for comparison.The user interface is considerably flatter than before - in fact, it looks a lot like the mockups for Google's upcoming Hera system, in what's probably a bit of convergent design
