Ads by Google

Google and the credit card companies aren’t the only organizations trying to nudge into the field of mobile payments. PayPal is now in the mix and has just received a boost by adding fifteen additional retailers to its list of partners.

PayPal’s mobile payment system allows customers to pay using two different methods. All users who sign up receive a “payment card” that acts like a credit card but is connected to a PayPal account. Users can also pay by entering their mobile phone number and PIN, but only after signing up for in-store payments on the company’s website.

Which retailers have partnered with Paypal? Here’s the list:

  • 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
  • Toys “R” Us

These new stores join the mobile payment provider list with the solitary original PayPal retail partner, Home Depot.

Unlike Google Wallet and other competitors, PayPal’s system does not rely on near-field communications (NFC). PayPal boasts this as an advantage because it means the use of their payment method is available to all customers immediately, regardless of the phone they own. What do you think? Would you rather pay via your phone number and a PIN, or does NFC seem like the way to go?
