PayPal advances at the point of sale

PayPal has signed up a further 15 national US retailers and completed deals with a suite of POS vendors as it rolls out its plans to become a major offline payments brand.


The fifteen new retailers join Home Depot in accepting payments via PayPal in their stores and include Abercrombie & Fitch, Advance Auto Parts, Aéropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker, Guitar Center, Jamba Juice, JC Penney, Jos A Bank Clothiers, Nine West, Office Depot, Rooms To Go, Tiger Direct and Toys R Us.

All three of the world’s top POS terminal makers have also now signed up to integrate PayPal into their devices, with the addition of VeriFone and Equinox to the online payments provider’s existing deal with Ingenico. Mid-market point of sale software providers Leapset, ShopKeep, Vend and Erply have also agreed to integrate PayPal into their solutions.

“With these deals in place, PayPal now has access to nearly 40 million payment terminals worldwide to help us drive innovation at scale,” David Marcus, president of PayPal, writes on the company’s blog.
