DEAL: PayPal HERE Card Reader for $15 at the Microsoft Store (Net FREE after registration credit)


Get down to your local Microsoft Store and pick up the new PayPal HERE Card Reader for Windows 8.1 for just $15.

It plugs into the audio jack of your Windows-based PC, such as a Surface Pro 3 and allows you to transact payments via credit card quickly and easily using the PayPal HERE app.

But once you register your PayPal account for payments via PayPal HERE (2.7% per transaction, no monthly fee), you’ll automatically get $15 in credit to go to future transaction fees.  In other words, you get back the cost of the Card Reader, making it essentially free.

PayPal HERE accepts credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal, plus tracks cash/check payments and sends invoices

This is one feature I love.  Unlike other services,  when you transact a payment using PayPal HERE, the money shows up in your account to use within MINUTES.  This is because unlike other systems, PayPal manages their own money – but they’re not a bank so they aren’t held to the same constraints that banks are.
