Revel Systems announced that they have integrated PayPal‘s mobile payment service within the Revel POS solution. Revel’s integration with PayPal is part of a new wave in the POS industry evolution with a mobile commerce offering direct integration with a POS platform for quick and easy mobile ordering and payments.
“The Revel Systems and PayPal relationship will be very impactful for the point-of-sale industry as a whole,” said Lisa Falzone, CEO of Revel Systems. “PayPal is leading the trend of digital secure payments on the consumer level, and Revel is leading the way for the next generation of mPOS, creating a collaboration that is set to deliver a new experience to customers. For years people have been using PayPal to shop online, and the integration with Revel now brings the same convenience and security to brick and mortar retail and food establishments allowing consumers to pay on the go.”
Revel’s POS system integration with PayPal will deliver three main benefits to consumers:
- Mobile Discovery: Uses the same functionality found in the PayPal app that enables customers to access a mobile directory of nearby establishments that accept PayPal to discover new places to purchase products and services. This helps encourage more retail foot-traffic for local businesses and provides incentives to get new customers to walk through the door.
- Order Ahead and Save Time: Through the PayPal app, customers have the convenience to place an order in advance to cut down on wait times, allowing today’s on-the-go customers the convenience of planning their meals or shopping beforehand.
- Enhanced Secure Payments: The same trusted security features that PayPal has become known for is included in the direct integration with Revel for brick-and-mortar shopping. Revel is fully PCI compliant, ensuring the security and integrity of transaction and identifiable personal information.
“PayPal is constantly executing on delivering next-generation experiences to merchants and consumers alike, working in collaboration with Revel. I’m happy to welcome them to our list of providers,” said Brad Brodigan, Vice President and General Manager SMB Retail at PayPal. “The ability to order ahead at restaurants is a great value add for merchants and consumers alike.”
