PayPal has announced 15 new national retailers to its brick-and-mortar roster in order to bring innovation and flexibility with PayPal’s offline payment and shopping solutions. These include: Abercrombie & Fitch, Advance Auto Parts, Aéropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker, Guitar Center, Jamba Juice, JC Penney, Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Nine West, Office Depot, Rooms To Go, Tiger Direct and Toys “R” Us.
“Consumers are relying on technology now more than ever to simplify their lives when it comes to shopping and paying, and retailers must adapt to this shift or risk becoming irrelevant,” PayPal President David Marcus wrote in a blog post. “Innovative retailers everywhere are looking for ways to improve the shopping experience, extend loyalty programs and better engage with their customers.”
“We’re able to drive consumers through a retailer’s doors with relevant offers, coupons and discounts, then maintain a relationship with that consumer that keeps bringing them back to the retailer, in store or online,” Marcus wrote in the blog post.
