Yesterday, PayPal launched their completely reimagined PayPal app on iPhone and Android, making it easier for customers to pay when they’re in-store and send money to friends.
Thousands of restaurants, cafes, clothing stores and other retail locations now allow shoppers to pay just using their mobile phones.
The PayPal app has a new tab called ‘Shop’, which you can use to find shops or restaurants nearby that accept PayPal payments. You can then ‘check in’ and open a tab with just a swipe. You can change how you want to pay right on the “check in” screen, meaning you’ve really got access to your entire wallet in the app. After you’ve paid, you’ll see a confirmation alert and our usual PayPal email receipt.
