PayPal adds new retailer partners in payments drive

Paypal

Extending its reach

PayPal has added seven new retailers to its roster of US partners to test its in-store payments service (Reports StrategyEye). Shoppers can now use their PayPal credit card or a PIN code to pay for items in-store, as the firm looks to make greater headway among bricks-and-mortar retailers. The firm is also test-driving a new order-and-pickup feature at new partner Jamba Juice, where customers can pre-order a drink via their mobile devices, pay using their PayPal account and then skip the queue to collect their juice on arrival.

New partners include Famous Footwear, Dollar General, Mapco Express, RadioShack, Spartan Stores and two undisclosed retailers. The firm already boasts a number of US merchants among its partners, including Toys ‘R’ Us and Barnes & Noble.
