Does this include a merchant number? Or do you not need one?

You don't need one, all you need is a PayPal account. Hense its a great option as no monthly fees, so if you use it once a year then it doesn't cost you anything except the initial device fee! :-)

Can also be used with most Android devices, minus these.

Had I not seen this post and someone asked me to pay by this means I would think they were skimming my card.

"Just pop your card in here sir and it will put the transaction on my phone". "Errmm no thanks!!"

Lots of businesses use these, they're great for small business and you get a receipt by text or email.

That should be FREE

Fees.

There are no monthly fees or hidden costs. Getting the card reader is a one-off purchase of £49.95 (incl. VAT and free delivery). Then you just pay 2.75% for every payment you accept with Chip and PIN cards and/or PayPal check-in*.

* Terms and conditions apply. Subject to application approval. Other fees: 3.40% + 20p for card payments made by swiping the magnetic strip or manually entering the card details. These fees apply to domestic transactions. If the payer’s card or PayPal account is from outside the United Kingdom, our standard cross-border fees also apply. PayPal Business account fees apply to all other payments received using PayPal Here.

Delivery: Delivery of the PayPal Here card reader is free to all UK addresses.

Note, I bought one of these and you have to upgrade your PayPal account, to which my request was denied because we didn't make enough T/O.

So it's not as straight forward as other PAYG terminals like iZettle, Barclays Anywhere, Worldpay Zinc etc

I wouldn't touch one of those, neither as a customer or trader. They are too easy to hack into and Paypal will not take any responsibility when that happens.

After the eBay hack - and the delay informing customers - would anyone really trust Paypal security?

yes, I've used ebay and paypal for 10+ years and will continue to do so

It's a terrible device, because it needs a 3G signal it's too unreliable, also the fees are too high and the fact they charge you for the device is just robbery. High fees should more than cover the cost of the device. I actually paid £99 for mine when they first came out, I lasted 3 months before I went for another payment option. I'm sure it will be useful for some but I suspect for most the costs will outweigh the gains of having one.
