PayPal, NCR Partner to Spur Mobile and Digital Payment Adoption
By: eBay Inc. Staff
Last week at the National Retail Federation’s annual conference, PayPal announced a number of new retail partners offering, or set to offer, PayPal in stores. According to Don Kingsborough, PayPal’s Vice President of Retail Services, the news demonstrates the company’s “commitment and dedication to expanding our payment solutions into new retail categories, such as grocery stores and gas stations.”
PayPal also announced that they were working with NCR to leverage their strong footprint with retailers and the hospitality industry and to encourage mobile and digital payment adoption.
Kingsborough notes in a new post at the PayPal blog that:
“In the first phase, NCR will integrate PayPal mobile payment options into the recently announced NCR Mobile Pay application and NCR Aloha Online Ordering. With this integration, PayPal will be a payment option and allow consumers greater choice for simple, fast and secure purchases, alongside credit or debit cards. Consumers will also be able to use the PayPal mobile application to locate, order-ahead and ‘check-in’ at participating NCR Mobile Pay merchants to access the same functionality.”
For more information about the new NCR partnership, please check out the full PayPal blog post and accompanying video.
