PAY WITH YOUR MOBILE ON THE HIGH STREET
The PayPal inStore app is the new cashless, cardless way to pay on the high street using your mobile phone. It’s smart, simple and secure. The app links to your existing PayPal account and you’ll get a unique one-time barcode each time you want to make a payment. The shop assistant will simply scan the barcode or type in the unique 10-digit code. Your PayPal account will be charged and you'll receive an instant electronic receipt.
WHERE CAN I USE PAYPAL INSTORE?
You can use the PayPal inStore app to shop with your mobile at Oasis, Warehouse, Coast, Karen Millen and Thomas Pink stores nationwide and there’ll be many more retailers coming soon.
Any special PayPal inStore app offers or promotions that you've opted into will be automatically applied to your purchase. You'll also receive alerts in the app when new promotions are starting.
What's New in Version 1.0.4
Resolved issue related to signing in.
Good idea in theory
I signed up to this via an offer email from PayPal. I was amazed that a store local to me (I live rurally) was involved. The transaction was very smooth, no problems at all even considering the dreadful network coverage in the store. What lets this app down is the severe lack of shops available to use this service. I've checked app for first time in ages & can't even see a list of shops like I could before. I notice from the app write up that the list of stores appears to have dwindled to just a handful now. Such a shame you couldn't get bigger brands on board like boots, whsmiths & a few pubs & restaurants!
Seems to be working Limited outlets accept though
