PayPal announced this year that shoppers at The Home Depot, Hollister, Foot Locker and Abercrombie & Fitch can now pay with their mobile number and a PIN associated with their PayPal account.
For almost 15 years, people have used PayPal to shop online and on mobile devices. Now, millions of PayPal users worldwide, can also pay securely at their favorite local stores. The new in-store payment system is free of transaction fees for shoppers.
Using PayPal for payment in-store or online means you will never have to share your personal financial info, such as your credit card number, with retailers. Plus, PayPal security specialists monitor transactions 24/7. They also have a customer service line for shoppers to call with any questions or concerns.
Additionally, PayPal will soon provide relevant and real time coupons and offers that are tailored specifically to each consumer – based on location or interests – that can be used both online or in-the-store.Tell Us:
