ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2013
ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --WorldPay US, a leading payments
acquirer, has teamed with Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS), a direct
banking and payment services company with one of the most recognized brands in
US financial services, to enable WorldPay's customers to accept PayPal
In-Store Checkout at the brick-and-mortar locations of participating
merchants. WorldPay's customers will be among the first US businesses able to
accept PayPal's innovative new mag-striped card that extends the speed,
simplicity and security of the digital wallet already enjoyed by 50+ million
active PayPal customers online to the face-to-face payment transaction.
"We are delighted that our relationship with Discover will enable business
owners to expand their acceptance options with this innovative new payment
product," said Tony Catalfano, President and CEO of WorldPay US. "What's
particularly exciting is the possibility of seeing how the exceptional loyalty
of PayPal customers translates into lasting benefit for business owners. Our
expectation is it will help increase customer engagement and loyalty, which
will hopefully translate into incremental sales for our merchants."
WorldPay customers will be able to begin accepting PayPal at the point of sale
in the Spring of 2013.
"WorldPay has long been a valued partner of Discover and we are thrilled that
they have chosen to be among the first to bring a highly innovative new
product to a competitive, multi-channel payment marketplace," said Diane
Offereins, President of Discover Payment Services
