15 More Retailers Accept PayPal For In-Store Payments [Updates]

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?

    Using PayPal would be OK but, why would anyone want another card? I thought this was supposed to be fast and mobile.

    So, eBay’s just bought PreyPal’s way into another 15 retailers and VeriFone. What a total waste of eBay shareholders’ funds; and, don’t any of these retailers research anything before they enter into agreements with such clunky operators?

    Read about it and weep, John Donahoe …

    In addition to Visa’s V.me, there is now MasterCard’s PayPass digital wallet soon to arrive; another perfectly logical extension to the real banks’ traditional, professional, payment processing systems (and you don’t have to ditch the plastic) …

    Goodbye clunky PreyPal, I can’t say that it has been nice knowing you …

    And, just for a laugh then, some comment on PayPal’s off-eBay products: “The New Way To Pay In-Store” (at Home Depot), PayPal Here, SmartPay, PayPal Digital Wallet, PayPal Debit MasterCard, PayPal Local and Watch With eBay …

    Jamba Juice accepts PayPal now? Holy moly. There goes my balance…

      I’m hoping they stay away from Starbucks or Dutch Bros, or its going to be the same for me.

  • Ro

    Home Depot is on the list too. Saved me last time when I stupidly forgot my card at home.

    • Matt Smith

      They were actually the original retailer they’re adding on to.

  • Sachin Kanchan

    alertpay is also a good way of paying online….it caught a good lead a few months back or maybe last year…but now i don’t see it that many places…

    but paypal has always been the best

    • Kyem Ghosh

      liberty reserve is also on the way as popular 1. paypal’s verification process for Indians is js hectic…. They take a lots of time to verify the PAN number…. But still its the safest and good enough…
