ayPal has signed a deal with petrol station payment provider, Gilbarco Veeder-Root that will see its mobile payment service become an option across the US. Initially, PayPal will be integrated with Gilbarco’s point-of-sale (Pos) product before becoming a part of all of its media and merchandising solutions.
Gilbarco claims to have more than 30,000 PoS systems installed at petrol stations and shops across the US. The deal comes as part of PayPal’s efforts to become a leading payment provider outside of the internet. To date, the firm has agreements to provide mobile payment solutions to 23 retails, 12 of which are now live in 18,000 locations
