Euronet Worldwide announces cooperation with PayPal to bring QR Code payment to in-store retailers

6 septembrie 2021

The PayPal QR Code is activated via epay’s checkout integration at the point-of-sale. The new offering provides great potential for retail merchants to reach PayPal’s 29.1 million active customers in Germany and 400 million active customers worldwide. The solution is already live in Germany and will be available in other markets in the future.

epay, the digital payments business segment of global financial technology solutions and payments provider Euronet Worldwide, Inc., today announced the integration of the PayPal QR Code in their point-of-sale solution.

Retailers who have implemented epay’s checkout integration software can easily add PayPal’s QR Code at the point-of-sale along with other current and future payment methods from a single source. The epay solution significantly reduces the complexity retailers face when offering different payment methods at the point-of-sale. Retailers also can respond flexibly to evolving customer demands in payment methods as they emerge and tap into new customer groups.

We are more than happy to collaborate with epay in Germany enabling merchants to easily expand their point-of-sale solutions with our new PayPal QR Code. The expectation of customers to pay the way they prefer has increased – online and in person. Together with epay, we help merchants offering their customers a wider choice of payment options at the point of sale by integrating the contactless PayPal QR Code,” explains Jörg Kablitz, Managing Director PayPal Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

We have great faith in the success of QR code and barcode-based payment methods, as they are very convenient and secure for consumers. The PayPal partnership is an important step for us. It helps us expand our payment diversity and positions epay as an aggregator and concentrator of all payment types, as well as a provider of value-added services of today and tomorrow for retailers,” says Stephan Heintz, Director DACH epay.

How it works: PayPal QR Code payment accepted at point-of-sale in seconds
If customers would like to pay with PayPal, they open the QR code in the PayPal app on their smartphone and present it for scanning. The cashier scans the code and the amount to be paid is shown directly in the app. Next, customers select their preferred payment method stored in their PayPal account – for example bank account or credit card – and confirm the payment on their smartphone. Customer and cashier then immediately receive a confirmation of the transaction.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
