    I know this has been hashed around here many times before, but what is the latest thoughts about using a credit card reader on an Android Galaxy Tab 2?

    I've had a PayPal account for many years, so I would lean towards using their credit card reader.

    Anyone use the PayPal credit card reader version?

    :thankyou:

    I use the PayPal reader with my Note II phone and have zero complaints. I don't need it often, but when I do, it's easy to use. It also has one of, if not the lowest, rates available. Add to that, a soon as you run the charge, it's in your PayPal account and you can immediately transfer it to your bank account. The transfer takes anywhere from 1-3 days in my experience.

    Samsung Galaxy Note II is the "full name". I'm on AT&T.

    Hi Moze ,

    Just wanted to verify which phone you are using, I was checking phone compatibility on PayPal's website, and they don't list the Samsung Galaxy Note II?

    https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-here-compatible-devices

    Are you 100% sure your phone is the Samsung Galaxy Note II and it works with PayPal Here?

    Thanks

    Yep, that's the phone I have and it works fine. Not sure why it's not listed on the site...it may be that PayPal hasn't updated their site since the Note II was released.

    The readers are free, so it's worth giving it a shot even if your device isn't listed.

    Thanks for the reply, this is a bit confusing, because they also say that Samung tablets are NOT supported, yet I found a video on YouTube showing it working on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 running CM10 Jelly Bean 4.1.1.
