PayPal: Mobile Cash is an app which allows you to send or receive your money online with your email only.
You can download PayPal: Mobile Cash for Windows, Android, iOS and you can use it online.
This PayPal: Mobile Cash review will tell you only about using the app on Apple products. And it works pretty fast, no difference compared with Android in productivity. You need to remember your password or keep it handy because PayPal asks for it each time you tap between your apps and get back to it. This is how you want it - it means that it takes care of your money's safety.
In this app you can, of course, transfer money everywhere in the world and any currency. Also, it's a great tool to purchase and sell goods. The commission will be different each time. Also, there's PayPal.Me service which is like a social network and you personal data storage for other PayPal's users to see that you're a real person.
Minimalistic design in white and blue colors. Basic. Typical. Boring. And it doesn't have a night view which is always upsetting because it's bad for your eyes and for your phone's battery. It's not necessary to have different styles for PayPal, but we think it would be much better if there were several themes available to choose with.
Before you begin using it, you need to put your bank card details. It can be debit, credit or just a general bank account. You need to put not only their numbers but your bank's details, so make sure you have them. Once it's ready the app well get from your card 1$ and will give back. They need to do it to know that this card or account is fine and working.
Then you need to also create PayPal's accounts; each one is for the currency you need. You set one main one but be careful because in some countries you can't choose the main currency other than your national one. It means that PayPal will automatically exchange Russian rubles to U.S. dollars if you're from the U.S.A. It's sad because the only bad thing about PayPal is its giant commissions - they might get up to … But if you want to send money to your family and friends from the U.S. - it's free!
Cross-platform use 4/5
You'll need version of iOS 10 and higher. It's compatible with any of Apple mobile devices - iPhone or iPad. It'll work the same on each of them; it'll just have a slightly different view each time. Maybe on the iPhone, it's little easier to work because it has less screen size, so the icons are closer to each other.
There are no in-app purchases available, and it says it’s free on iTunes. That’s right because PayPal makes money of our transactions, so there’s no point to have for us something extra to buy from them. And their commissions usually cost around 2,90% per transaction depending on to what country your money goes.
The Bottom Line
It's much more convenient to download PayPal: Mobile Cash on your iPhone than to use it online. Although PayPal's browser service is also very safe.
PayPal is a must have app for your mobile devices if you're a modern person.
Pros : Easy to use;
Cons : Big commissions;
Can't receive money in different currencies.
