The future of payments, coming soon, with Vend & PayPal

With Vend & PayPal, your customers will soon be able to check in to your store and pay effortlessly from a smartphone using their PayPal account.

We said it was an exciting week at Vend, and here is our other big news.

Today we are pleased to announce an important partnership with the global leader in online payments, PayPal, that will soon let customers pay for goods and services in Vend using PayPal on their mobile phones.

After months of hard work, we have begun trialing PayPal payments in Vend with a small number of retailers. Stores such as the lovely Rare Device in San Francisco. Watch the video at the end of this post to see their story.

From today, 24th May, we are taking expressions of interest from current and new Vend customers to join the PayPal payments trial. Spaces are limited, so register your interest today.

How will it work?

With over 100 million members worldwide, PayPal will help businesses connect with new & existing customers, and offer them an innovative payment solution.

For PayPal enabled Vend businesses, checkout couldn’t be easier. Customers simply locate your store in the local tab of the PayPal iPhone app, and ‘check in’ to your business. Vend notifies you of any checked-in customers and automatically syncs to your customer database, for easy access to sales history and customer management. When they are ready to pay, just confirm them by name and photo, and you’re done.

No handing over of cards. No cash. No QR codes or NFC. Just instant payment for items between PayPal accounts.

It really is the future of payments. Coming soon.
