Well we’re using the new PayPal tap and go reader at our trade shows and retail fairs for the offline business. It’s extremely impressive. It sometimes takes a few moments to find it’s connection but nothing serious and although my wife uses it more than me we’re both very impressed.
Her reader developed a fault just before the current expo we’re doing and the display didn’t offer a reboot or anything, just told us to contact Paypal. On doing this a replacement was couriered out within 48 hours, and Paypal support were spot on.
I WAS going to say the only downside was having to buy the new model handset since we already have the ‘old’ white one. But if we hadn’t had it as a fallback when the new reader went faulty things would have been very inconvenient.
Overall, great device, been flawless so far (touch wood) and support are excellent too.
