PayPal and Discover to Bring PayPal to Millions of In-Store Locations
PayPal has announced an extension of its offline strategy by teaming up with Discover to bring PayPal to more than 7 million merchant locations across the U.S.
"We couldn't be more thrilled to work with Discover. This relationship quickly extends PayPal's reach to millions of merchant locations nationwide and is a milestone moment for us that will create new benefits for Discover merchants without requiring new hardware or software,” said Don Kingsborough, PayPal’s Vice President of Retail. "This relationship will deliver a truly seamless digital wallet, available most places consumers shop offline, which offers the speed, simplicity and security already enjoyed by 113 million active PayPal customers online."
Rollout to merchants will launch in April 2013.
