Throughout the past year or so, PayPal has been working to make its in-store payment platform more robust by bringing in a number of new retail partners, including Home Depot, Guitar Center, Barnes & Noble, and JC Penney. However, today the company has revealed that PayPal users can now pay for items in over 18,000 physical stores throughout the US.

 

PayPal announced today that 23 large national retailers have begun participating in PayPal Now, and the service is now available at 18,000 retail locations around the United States. PayPal Now officially launched back in May of 2012 to extend PayPal’s payment platform into physical stores. Shoppers simply enter their phone number and a pin code during checkout instead of swiping their credit or debit card.

 

The service is definitely useful for people who forget their wallets, or for those who just prefer to keep all of their transaction under one roof. There are also opportunities to earn digital coupons and loyalty points by choosing this method of payment, so there’s definitely an incentive to use the new platform other than convenience.

 

Square is obviously PayPal’s biggest competitor, with its own plans in the retail realm that includes a major partnership with Starbucks. It’ll be interesting to see where the mobile payment industry goes from here. Google Wallet is making the rounds, and while it’s not yet a well-known avenue for payments, it just could be a matter of time before we see it take off.

PayPal has revealed plans to introduce a point-of-sale application in India, which will allow online shoppers to use their debit and credit cards to make transactions using mobile devices.

 

The company also plans to launch a money transfer application, which will enable users send and receive money within the country.

 

In 2011, PayPal has made several changes in its user agreements after the Reserve Bank of India announced regulations on online money transfers. As a result, the company had to restrict its India users from withdrawing PayPal funds through a bank and transferring funds directly between two personal accounts.

 

According to Dhruv Sawhney, director enterprise product and global operational excellence at Paypal, cited by online media outlet indiatimes.com, Paypal has been working with the Indian regulators and is now ready to build its base in the country, where it has two development centers.

E-Commerce still a very new term for most of the people in Malaysia, but there is a study done by Paypal Online and mobile Shopping Insights 2011 found out that there are significant of increment on the online transaction done online, especially on the festive season. Christmas is the busiest day for online shopper to grab their gift.

 

Mobile shopping was driven by an increasing number of Malaysians going online via Internet-capable mobile devices. According to a recent InMobi report, smartphone penetration in Malaysians is at a sharp increase, where close to six in ten Malaysian digital consumers used their mobile phone to access the Internet in 2011. The InMobi ‘Mobile Impact on Media Consumption in Malaysia’ report also revealed that mobile is the top choice for Malaysians going online.

 

Elias Ghanem, Managing Director, PayPal Southeast Asia and India said:

“Online shopping has become mainstream, especially during the festive season as many Malaysians skipped the long queues, searched online for great deals, and bought gifts from the comfort of their homes. This was the first festive season for mobile shopping to become popular as Malaysians reached for their smartphones and tablets to enjoy the convenience of shopping anytime, anywhere. Interestingly, Malaysians planned well ahead for their festive online shopping in late November whereas mobile shopping was widely used for purchases during the Christmas week.”
