BOCA RATON, Fla. -- December 17, 2012

Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE:ODP), a leading global provider of office supplies
and services has now added PayPal to its selection of online payment options,
giving customers a secure way to pay for purchases on www.officedepot.com.

Using PayPal on www.officedepot.com simplifies the online checkout process by
providing shoppers with a quick, and secure option to pay for purchases
without sharing financial information. PayPal can also help shorten the time
needed to checkout as customers do not need to type the billing and shipping
addresses or financial information that it is already stored securely in their
PayPal account.

Just in time for the busy online holiday shopping season, Office Depot
customers can pay for purchases by using either their existing PayPal account
or create a new PayPal account through a convenient link on the Office Depot
website shown during the checkout process.

PayPal currently has 117 million active registered accounts worldwide and is
available in 190 markets.

“PayPal provides Office Depot customers with an exciting new payment option,”
said Mike Kirschner, Senior Vice President, e-Commerce for Office Depot. “We
are always working hard to improve the online shopping experience and PayPal
is a great example of how Office Depot offers more choices for how customers
want to shop with us.”

To use the service at checkout, www.officedepot.com customers provide their
existing PayPal account information, and they can securely link their bank
account, debit or credit cards to their PayPal account. Their stored shipping
and billing information quickly processes the payment and items are shipped
directly from Office Depot. A record of the purchases will be available on
customers’ PayPal accounts and the payment details will be available for
future purchases, allowing customers to speed through checkout. PayPal also
provides protection against eligible unauthorized payments.
