We are definitely moving ahead in terms of easy shopping experience. Now
with your PayPal account you could shop inStore either through the till or on the Store floor where shop assistant will be ready to scan you’re shopping and take payment with I pad. The beauty is that you can even use the app when there is no mobile network or WiFi coverage.
With 62.3% of mobile phone users with Smartphone in the UK this is definitely good move for PayPal to increase their reach and differentiate from their rival Amazon Payment or Google Checkout.
Currently you can shop at Oasis, Coast, Warehouse and Karen Millen stores across the UK. PayPal claims more retailers to be added shortly !

What’s next? Probably we will be paying our Council Tax or Utility Bills with PayPal. This is what PayPal says:
“With PayPal, there is no need to staff payment counters or manually create reports. PayPal automates the payment and reporting process from start to finish, freeing local government employees to focus on other critical tasks. And with low transaction fees and no monthly, set-up, or cancellation fees, payment processing costs can decline as well.”
