PayPal signs up merchants in Berlin for high street 'check-in' service

13 December 2013  |  2253 views  |  0 Source: PayPal

Towards the end of November, we were happy to announce the launch of our pilot Check-In program in Berlin. Now, a variety of local cafes and restaurants - and any other participating merchants - can offer their customers a walletless transaction. All that's needed is a smartphone and the PayPal app.

With the new "Shops" tab, customers show the merchant that they are in their place of business. The merchant sees the customer's profile image and can process the payment via the customer's PayPal account. The customer then receives a confirmation of the amount they paid as well as a receipt.

This pilot project is another important step towards a cashless future. By this new way of paying, we not only ensure that customers can buy what they want even if they don't have the right amount of cash on them, but also that merchants of all sizes can be an active part of the innovative future of commerce.

Personally, I think PayPal has defined a great new cashless consumer experience making use of your everyday device to make everyday purchases. Special thanks to our team that made this possible.

Currently, Berlin's participating shops and restaurants include Du Bonheur, hosskost Berlin, MAKI, Mogg & Melzer, momos, Noodeli, ocelot, Shoenschmecker Deli, The Barn and The Barn Roastery.
