Mobile commerce platform from PayPal gets more attention

PayPal continues to establish lead in mobile field

PayPal has been making waves in the mobile commerce field and has established itself as a leading service provider for mobile consumers. In September 2013, PayPal was able to solidify its place in the mobile world with the launch of Beacon, a promising mobile commerce platform designed to streamline payments being made from a mobile device. The company has announced that it will begin showing more attention to the e-commerce world this year and has plans to further expand the availability of Beacon.

Checkout platform aims to streamline e-commerce

PayPal has introduced a new checkout platform that is designed specifically for e-commerce merchants. This platform is meant to streamline the checkout process for online customers, making it easier and faster for people to purchase products through online retailers. The new platform allows consumers to remain on a retailer’s website in order to complete a transaction using PayPal instead of first having to be redirected to PayPal’s site. The company suggests that this process will be easier for consumers and more beneficial for retailers in the long term.

Payment Code to see expansion

Currently, Payment Codes are available in 1,500 stores in the United Kingdom and PayPal plans to expand the availability of this platform over the coming months.

Furthermore, PayPal is working to integrate its Beacon mobile commerce platform into the PayPal application. This is expected to be completed within the coming months and will allow app users to take advantage of Beacon more easily. The company’s current projects are still in a small-scale testing phase, but PayPal expects to expand these projects quickly as they become more developed and their potential problems are mitigated.

PayPal makes sweeping update to mobile commerce app

PayPal application may triumph in the mobile commerce sector thanks to new update

PayPal has issued a major update for its mobile commerce application that may help it edge out the competition from other mobile wallets. The PayPal application has long existed as a way to allow consumers to manage their financial information from the mobile device. Previous versions of the application did allow for transactions, but PayPal has been taking steps to ensure that the application can provide consumers with more comprehensive mobile commerce services. The new update introduces several new features to the application that may make it one of the most robust platforms currently available.

App equipped with new, innovative features

The application features a new user interface that is designed to be more convenient for users. Those using the application to make a purchase can now take advantage of PayPal’s “Bill Me Later” financing option as well, providing more flexibility when it comes to mobile payments. PayPal has also taken steps to make the in-store mobile purchase process more efficient. Consumers will be able to use the application to pay for products in physical stores more easily than they could with previous versions of the app.

PayPal has also introduced a new feature simply called “Shop” to the application. Shop allows users to find local restaurants and stores that accept mobile payments. The application also allows users to change the way they pay for products as they please. Users can opt to use their PayPal balance or make use of a credit card or bank account that has been linked to the application as well. The application also allows consumers to place and pay for orders from restaurants that support mobile commerce. This same feature allows consumers to pay for these orders when they receive their meals.

PayPal may establish strong lead with updated app

PayPal has already established a strong presence in the mobile commerce field, but the company has yet position itself as the clear leader in this sector. There are a multitude of mobile commerce services available to consumers today, and this abundance of options means that no single platform has managed to win the favor of the majority of people in any given market. PayPal has designed its updated application in order to tackle this issue.
