Microsoft launches new Paypal Here for Surface solution

PayPal Here for Surface, a new mobile payment solution for small business retailers, is now available.

The new solution includes a PayPal mobile card reader and Windows app that has been designed to work with Surface.

The lightweight, mobile design of the Surface Pro 3 device means it can be used easily in point-of-sale (POS) scenarios. The device can also handle the various inventory and supply management tasks necessary to run a business.

US-based small business retailers will now be able to purchase the complete POS solution, including Surface, the PayPal Here mobile card reader and specific point of sale hardware accessories, at full line Microsoft stores.

“On the Surface team, we’ve always had a focus on helping people do more, and now with this new POS solution with PayPal Here, we’re happy to introduce a new way for small to medium-sized businesses to reduce the number of devices they need to help their businesses grow and become more mobile,” said Angela Lean, senior product marketing manager at Microsoft.

Until 15 June, US customers that sign up for the PayPal Here App will pay just 1.9% per swipe on eligible US swipe transactions, instead of the normal 2.7%.
