The Payment Code feature, announced today, will allow PayPal users to pay for things in physical retail stores by scanning a QR code generated in the app, or by using a one-time four digit code in stores that use PIN codes but don’t have a scanner.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
To use it, customers will simply have to check into a store using the PayPal app, at which point they will receive their PIN or QR code, depending on which the store uses and it will be debited in the regular way from the PayPal account. Sadly, we’ll have to wait a little longer to test it out as it’s not set to roll out until early next year.
