Payments Views - PayPal Takes on Square and the Square Wannabes

GP Logo Horizontal 140pxOver on Payments Views, Glenbrook's Erin McCune blogs about the recent PayPal Here announcement, and her take on what it means to Square and the Square Wannabes.

The story here is simplicity. The merchant fee for PayPal Here transactions is 2.7%. Slightly lower than Square, and about the same as Intuit GoPayments. The big differences is access to funds. Just like online merchants, offline merchants are credited sales into their PayPal account in real-time as purchases complete.

Intuit GoPayment Hits the Campaign Trail

With just one swipe, fundraisers can easily increase their donations while collecting all information needed to help them meet their reporting requirements.”

Intuit to Launch Prepaid Debit Card to Support GoPayment

Intuit logo 140pxIntuit has announced a number of new services designed to fuel Intuit's transformation from a software company to a connected services company. Included in the announcement was a new prepaid debit card for use as a Intuit GoPayment payout instrument.

To make it easier for small businesses to get started processing credit cards on a mobile device, GoPayment will soon enable users to deposit funds directly onto a prepaid debit card. This will make it faster to start taking payments because new users can sign up for GoPayment without needing to provide bank account details. For smaller businesses, it also provides a convenient way to keep their business finances separate from their personal funds. The prepaid debit card for GoPayment will be available later this fall.

Yesterday, Intuit held its annual investors day to update the investment community on progress and strategy –– including that of Intuit Payments. Slides and webcast available here.

"GoPayment is meeting a huge need and is one of the fastest growing mobile payment solutions in the market.
