PayPal hits the high street in Holland

28 July 2014  |  7967 views  |  0 amsterdam

Shoppers in the Netherlands can now use their PayPal accounts to order ahead and pay for goods and services at 1500 high street locations through a partnership with Rabobank-backed MyOrder

MyOrder, in which Rabobank acquired an 80% stake in 2012, manages orders for the hotel, restaurant and Dutch cafeteria sector. Payments run via Minitix, the Rabobank sms payment system.

The integration with PayPal enables users to order and pay for food or drinks ahead of arriving at a cafe; to pay at the table in a restaurant without calling over the waiter, or pay for parking without searching for the closest meter.

By clicking on the local tab, app users can see participating local businesses nearby, swipe to check-in to the one they want, and pay directly with PayPal.

The online payments outfit has been steadily expanding its business to the high street and through the mobile device. Last year, of the $180 billion of payments processed by PayPal, $27 billion were made from a smartphone or tablet, up 99% on the previous year.

Alongside apps for iOS and Android devices, PayPal last week added support for Amazon's new Fire phone, available for download from the Amazon app store.
