Square offers a much more robust desktop application than PayPal Here. The Square Dashboard (see image on the right) is available as a web-based application for your desktop computer or as an iOS app. From the Square Dashboard, you can do detailed inventory management, track inventory stock, and set up low stock alerts. You can also edit your inventory in bulk, including uploading CSV files.
If your business has physical storefront, and especially if it’s a food-service business or a business with multiple locations, we recommend Square. Square has more features than PayPal Here, and while some of these may be excessive for very small businesses, many are useful and fill in gaps where PayPal Here is lacking. Features such as inventory and stock tracking, multiple location features, and open or split tickets make Square stand out above PayPal Here. A downside to Square is the employee features are not standard, and require a $5 monthly subscription (per employee).
quick question! i was checking out a customer who purchased a printer with squaretrade and i mentioned that he didn’t need to do anything else with it, because he was a rewards members and it registers automatically with his account. my IA overheard me and corrected me saying that customers DO still have to either call or register their plans online for them to be in effect. which is true? when I first got to staples i was told it’s automatically registered if they’re rewards members so I always assumed so, are there exceptions based on different types of plans or anything?

Setting up a PayPal Here account requires a either a Premier or Business PayPal account. If you donâ€™t have a Premier or Business PayPal account, you’ll need to set one up or upgrade your current PayPal account in order to use PayPal Here. Certain features, such as using the desktop application or adding employees (more on those below), require a Business PayPal account. As a part of set up, PayPal can sometimes require a credit check and/or background check. Using PayPal here does not require a monthly subscription or contract.

I bought the recommended printer and cash register but not sure how to connect them to the phone. I thought I heard somewhere that you have to have a wifi signal and connect the receipt printer to a router which is connected to wirelessly to your iPhone? But I don’t understand how you always have a wifi signal (as opposed to 3G) at events or locations.
