ShopKeep POS Will Enable PayPal’s Millions of Users to Pay Instantly Through Their Mobile Devices at Nearly 2,000 Merchants Nationwide
NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwire – May 24, 2012) – Now customers can check-in with PayPal and check out at the register at nearly 2,000 merchants thanks to the innovative iPad POS solution from ShopKeep® POS, the simplest way to make smarter business decisions. With the launch of the PayPal partnership, nearly 2,000 merchants nationwide who use ShopKeep POS as their POS system can now accept PayPal cardless payments at the industry-low, flat rate of 2.7%. Merchants in New York City and Boston have already started accepting PayPal mobile payments as part of the ShopKeep POS / PayPal east coast pilot program.
“Disruptive, innovative point-of-sale providers like ShopKeep POS are helping us to work with thousands of small businesses to accept PayPal in-store,” said Hill Ferguson, Vice President of Mobile, PayPal. “ShopKeep’s cloud-based solution enables small businesses to seamlessly add PayPal as a payment option into their existing point-of-sale systems without having to upgrade their hardware. With PayPal, small businesses can get better insights into their customers, streamline purchase lines, and reach millions of shoppers that already trust the PayPal brand.”
The process is simple — PayPal customers check-in at participating merchants with their PayPal iPhone app. At checkout, the customer’s name and photo will appear on the ShopKeep POS iPad register. The cashier identifies the customer and finalizes the transaction. Once the transaction is complete, the customer is automatically checked out of the store and receives an email receipt of the transaction.
“It’s easy and fast, and at the right price,” says Founder of ShopKeep POS. “That’s what our merchants want — to move lines quickly. This partnership fits right in line with our core values of un-intimidating point-of-sale and is cost-effective at the 2.7% rate. Plus, PayPal’s massive customer base helps to drive foot traffic to our thousands of merchants.”
ShopKeep POS provides an easy-to-use, cost-effective, flexible point-of-sale solution for brick and mortar retailers. Merchants can ring up sales, manage inventory, build customer loyalty programs, and remotely access real-time sales.
