PayPal® In-Store Payments coming to Discover Full Service Merchants
To ensure merchants can provide their customers with the option to pay how they want to pay, all Discover Full Service Merchants will be enabled to accept PayPal® In-Store Payments within the next two months. Qualifying merchants will be notified of this action the week of May 4, 2016. PayPal® In-Store Payments acceptance will be activated for these merchants by June 20, 2016.
How consumers pay in-store with PayPal
Once activated, consumers will be able to pay in-store using the PayPal app on their mobile phone or via card. PayPal’s new mobile app can be used on any terminal that supports contactless “tap and pay” mobile payments. Card transactions can be used on most POS devices in the market today – just like other cards.
Without changing a thing
There’s nothing new for merchants to learn – their account will be set-up to accept PayPal, following the same process they currently use to accept other payments (funds will be deposited directly to their bank account; a separate PayPal account is not required).
Merchants not wishing to accept PayPal In-Store Payments will be afforded the opportunity to opt-out within 30 days of their initial notification.

First Data Launches Clover Online Store, An All-In-One eCommerce Solution 20 Apr 2016
LAS VEGAS, APRIL 20, 2016 – For many people, their first interaction with a company is a virtual connection. That first impression – typically in the form of a website – says a lot about a business and must convey professionalism, competence, and security. Small business owners understand the importance of an online presence, but the thought of building and maintaining a website can be daunting. That’s why First Data (NYSE: FDC), a global leader in commerce-enabling technology, is launching Clover Online Store, a comprehensive online solution that manages everything from website design to creating a virtual shopping cart, all while facilitating safe, secure transactions. Clover Online Store will be available beginning in May and will be offered free to business owners through the end of 2016.
The integration between Clover Online Store and a Clover POS device allows a business owner to monitor sales on one platform regardless of whether the transactions take place online or in-store. With Clover Online Store, business owners can give their customers the omnichannel shopping experience that customers expect today.
“Clover Online Store provides business owners with an ‘all-in-one’ integrated solution that includes shopping cart functionality, web design and all of the business management features that come with Clover,” said Guy Chiarello, President, First Data. “Better yet, Clover Online Store is backed by First Data, the eCommerce industry leader that powers 28% of global online transactions.”
From the moment users log in to the Clover Online Store, they are greeted with simple directions to guide them as they set up their website. Next, business owners can peruse a wide variety of professionally-designed templates and pick the design that best fits their business. The shopping cart function is built directly into the web design, meaning businesses can begin to accept payments right away.
Clover Online Store also features:
Booker, a service commerce solution that supports the ten million SMBs in the service industry, is the first third party app built on the Clover API. Booker caters to salons, spas, and other appointment-based businesses, helping business owners manage appointments online and make scheduling easy for staff and customers.
“We’re excited to partner with First Data to bring service businesses a fully integrated solution to run and grow their business,” said Josh McCarter, CEO of Booker. “The combination of the Clover Online Store and Booker is a game-changer for SMB service businesses that will benefit from the first completely integrated business management and payment solution – allowing business owners to focus on the work they enjoy.”
Chiarello and Charron announced the launch of Clover Online Store today during their keynote at ETA's TRANSACT 16 conference in Las Vegas.
