Patrons of those stores will be able to pay with PayPal at parking meters, cafes, restaurants, and more.
Thanks to a partnership with Rabobank-owned MyOrder, PayPal users have a more convenient way to pay. Using PayPal’s mobile app linked to a payment account, users can:
- Pay for a parking meter without searching for the pay station
- Order drinks ahead of time at a coffee shop
- Pay for a meal without waiting for the server to bring the check
For PayPal, this expansion into mobile payments is no surprise. Last year, the dollar value of transactions made from a smartphone or tablet was $27 billion, which is an increase of 99% from one year prior.
