Gas Station Checkout Provider Gilbarco Veeder-Root Introduces PayPal Payments
PayPal has signed an agreement with gas station checkout solution Gilbarco Veeder-Root about the implementation of PayPal as a payment option at all their gas and convenience stores across the U.S. At first PayPal will be integrated into Gilbarco’s Passport Point-of-Sale product, and later it is planned to integrate it into Gilbarco’s suite of media and merchandising applications. According to Gilbarco over 30,000 POS systems have been already installed across North America. Users paying for their purchases will have to enter either QR code, or their fueling position into a mobile application. PayPal has been rapidly increasing its sphere of activity outside of online payments, aiming to establish itself as a leading mobile payments provider at places where people shop out in the real world. The company has recently declared about partnership with such popular retail chains as Famous Footwear, Dollar General, RadioShack, Abercrombie & Fitch, Advance Auto Parts, Aéropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker, the Home Depot, Jamba Juice, JC Penney, Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Nine West, Office Depot, Rooms To Go, Tiger Direct and Toys “R” Us.
