      Reviews of PayPal and WePay
      Review ofPayPalPayPal

      Paypal comes with tons of old APIs, and new ones that are incomplete. There are bugs in the documentation, bug with their implementation. And their support department is completely clueless.

      Frankly it is only good if you use its light mode: a direct payment with no recurring fees. So forget about it if you want to put in place things like Subscription mode, their are better players out there to do that.

      PayPal is used as one of our payment-gateways included in our shop-solution. We only use PayPal for direct debits/charges from bank-accounts as we got Stripe for credit-card transactions.

      Donations are processed through PayPal, mostly. So it's a pretty indespensable tool, as it's our main source of income.
