PayPal and Discover to Bring PayPal to Millions of In-Store Locations
http://online.barrons.com/article/PR-CO-20120822-905776.html...


Today, PayPal 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., and potentially to millions of international merchant locations in the future. Starting in 2013, Discover will work with PayPal to enable participating merchants to accept PayPal easily through their existing relationship with Discover. Consumers will be able to take advantage of the benefits of PayPal at these merchant locations, providing them with the simplicity, speed and security they've come to expect from PayPal across any channel, any time.

Starting in 2013, participating merchants will be enabled to accept PayPal easily through their relationship with Discover. To offer PayPal, merchants will not have to install or upgrade existing point-of-sale hardware or software and consumers will know of this additional payments option through in-store signage. As a leader in online payments, PayPal expects to bring brick-and-mortar merchants more shoppers in store and to extend convenience and utility for consumers through innovative mobile payment solutions. Additionally, PayPal's 50+ million active U.S. customers are expected to help increase customer engagement, loyalty and incremental sales at the physical point of sale.
