PayPal Praises Presence at 18,000 Retail Locations

Don Kingsborough, VP of Retail Services at PayPal, announced Monday that 23 leading national retailers are now signed up to accept PayPal in their stores, which is in accordance with the company’s previously outlined goals for 2012.

In fact, PayPal’s initial goal was 20 national retailers.

“I’m happy to report that we exceeded that goal, and at the close of 2012 we had agreements with 23,” Kingsborough wrote.

The vision we started to lay out in 2012 is quickly becoming a reality, and when you now walk into 18,000 physical stores around the U.S., you see the PayPal name when checking out, making the reality of any time, anywhere payments come alive.

Among the national brand name retailers are Famous Footwear, Dollar General, Mapco Express, RadioShack, Spartan Stores, Abercrombie & Fitch, Advance Auto Parts, Aéropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker, Guitar Center, the Home Depot, Jamba Juice, JC Penney, Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Nine West, Office Depot, Rooms To Go, Tiger Direct, and Toys “R” Us.

Other partners will be announced “soon,” Kingsborough says.
