PayPal has come up with a novel new weapon to help it take over the high street – an old-fashioned plastic credit card. The digital payments pioneer has teamed up with Synchrony Financial on the Mastercard card, which will offer two per cent cashback on every online and instore purchase, with no annual fee or cash back limit, no limit or expiration on cash rewards earned, no minimum redemption amount, no restriction on how to spend rewards.
PayPal customers in the U.S. can now earn cash back on every purchase online and in stores with today’s launch of the new PayPal Cashback Mastercard issued by Synchrony Bank. The PayPal Cashback Mastercard, designed exclusively for PayPal members, offers cardholders 2% cash back every day, on every purchase – everywhere Mastercard is accepted.
Unlike other rewards credit cards, there is no annual cash back limit, no minimum redemption amount, no restriction on how to spend cash rewards and no expiration. The PayPal Cashback Mastercard offers all the security and convenience expected from PayPal, plus all the traditional benefits of a Mastercard. All accounts are automatically added to the member’s PayPal wallet to simplify checkout and provide peace of mind.

. Cash rewards redeemed directly to PayPal balance – no redemption minimums or limits on how to use rewards;
. Zero fraud liability;
. Automatically added to PayPal wallet upon approval, allowing immediate use before physical card arrives in most cases;
. When used to pay for merchandise through PayPal, eligible transactions receive PayPal Purchase Protection at no additional cost;

„Tendinţele pe care le-am remarcat înainte de începerea pandemiei s-au accelerat pe perioada stării de urgenţă. Am văzut acest lucru ca o oportunitate, un tipping point pentru bancă. Post-pandemie nu avem cum sa ne întoarcem la comportamentul financiar pe care îl aveam până în februarie a.c. Relaţia românilor cu online-ul s-a schimbat. In plus, cardul fizic se va dematerializa. Vom asista la o scădere a cererii pentru cardurile fizice, respectiv la o creştere a preferinţei pentru componenta digitală a acestora.”
