To use the PayPal Here Device, you must download the PayPal Here App. You may download the PayPal Here App from the Apple iTunes, Google Play, or Windows App Stores. There is no fee to download the PayPal Here App.
Because your customer is present at the time of your PayPal Here transactions, you may be required to obtain a customer signature on non-PIN credit or debit card transactions greater than twenty-five dollars ($25). Obtaining this signature may assist you in defending against a chargeback in the event a customer claims the transaction was unauthorized.
You must provide customers with a receipt upon request. Customers may choose an electronic receipt delivered via email or SMS rather than a paper receipt. You must obtain your customers’ consent prior to using the PayPal Here App to send an email or SMS text to them.
You agree that any transaction that you submit through PayPal Here shall have an accurate and true description of the goods and services being purchased. You also agree to comply with any instructions provided to you along with your PayPal Here Device.
4.b Offline Payments
PayPal, in its sole discretion, may permit you to accept swiped card payments even if your internet connection is temporarily unavailable. Chip payments cannot be processed while offline.
If you are eligible to accept offline payments and have enabled that feature, you will be able to swipe payments even without internet connectivity. Payments that are accepted offline will not be processed until an internet connection is restored and a request to process the pending offline transactions is made. If you are using the PayPal Here App, these steps will be completed automatically once connectivity is restored. If you are utilizing the PayPal Here SDK with another app, that app must be configured to make these requests to the PayPal Here SDK or payments will not be processed. You are responsible for ensuring that requests to process payments accepted offline are made in a timely fashion. Any offline payments not processed within twenty-four (24) hours will expire.
Offline payments are subject to certain limits, including but not limited to per-transaction limits and total offline processing limits. If you are using the PayPal Here App, these limits will be presented to you within the App. If you are utilizing the PayPal Here SDK with another app, you can find information on limits here. Limits are subject to change at any time in PayPal’s sole discretion. We will notify you of these changes in accordance with your notification preferences.
Offline payments cannot be disputed if they are declined after connectivity is restored. You assume all liability for offline payments, including those that are subsequently declined, expired, or disputed. This includes transactions that are not properly processed because your device is lost, stolen, damaged, or the PayPal Here App (or any app leveraging the PayPal Here SDK) is deleted prior to re-connecting to the internet. Any refunds will be processed in the normal course after you are reconnected to the internet.
If you are offering or operating an app utilizing the PayPal Here SDK to be provided to merchants, you must inform such end user merchants of these obligations, and obtain appropriate consent to these terms and limitations, before allowing access to offline payment functionality.
