PayPal is testing it's point-of-sale system in Office Depot Inc. stores. This is the second high-profile retailer known to be working with PayPal on perfecting its POS solution, according to Mobile Payments Today.
Just last week, PayPal said it will be expanding its tests with initial partner Home Depot to include 51 stores, mainly in the San Francisco area. The plan is to include all Home Depot locations by March.
PayPal has said it expects to have its services available at the point of sale in 20 major retailers by the end of the year.
The company has been working hard to showcase its POS solution for retailers. It featured many of its new products for offline merchants at its booth at the National Retail Federation show in New York City last month. Many retailers have paid a visit to PayPal's pop-up store in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan to see PayPal's solutions on display.
According to Anuj Nayar, PayPal's director of global communications, more than 100 retailers have visited the PayPal store since it was opened in mid-October.
