NEW SHOPPING TECHNOLOGY FROM PAYPAL DEBUTS IN SELECT MARKETS ACROSS THE US
As the future of shopping continues to change, PayPal is leading the charge. PayPal’s new in-store payment solution is now available in all 18 The Home Depot stores select markets throughout the country. The Home Depot is the first retailer to integrate PayPal’s point of sale technology, which allows shoppers to check out with a mere swipe of a PayPal payment card or by entering their mobile phone number and PIN. And this is only the beginning; 20 additional big-name retailers will start accepting PayPal in store by the end of the year.
You might be thinking, “why will our listeners care?” They will care because beyond the business story, beyond the technology story, there lies a consumer story. The future of shopping is changing radically and by 2015, PayPal predicts that the wallet will be obsolete because digital currency will be accepted everywhere.
PayPal has been commanding headlines recently with news about retail solutions – in fact, just last week PayPal announced the future of commerce for small businesses with PayPal Here, the world’s first global mobile payment solution that allows small businesses to accept almost any form of payment. While other companies are coming out with their versions of the “digital wallet,” PayPal is the only company that is truly blurring the lines between online and offline commerce.
PayPal Shopping Specialist Claudia Lombana is available discussing the future of shopping and the benefits to consumer and to retailers. Lombana can also discuss online and mobile shopping growth and safety concerns/tips.
