PayPal Here Lets Your Phone Accept Chip And Pin Payments

PayPal’s announced the general Australian availability of its PayPal Here Bluetooth device designed to make it easier for small merchants to accept payments.

We’ve known that PayPal’s Here reader for Android and iOS devices was joining the Australian payments fray for some time, and today is the day that the company has made it widely available for any Australian business to use.

The Bluetooth Here reader works for processing Mastercard, Visa and (of course) PayPal transactions from credit and debit accounts, and carries a standalone price of $139 for the device itself. The service itself takes 1.95% of the transaction value for credit card payments via the card reader, 2.4% + 30c for invoicing or 2.9% + 30c for credit cards keyed into the app without use of the card reader.
