We at PayPal are over the moon today, as a recent report from BIA/Kelsey’s ongoing “Local Commerce Monitor” study found that 40% of small and medium-sized businesses are now using mobile point-of-sale systems. That’s a 12% jump from last year’s 28%, and another 16% plan to add this capability within the next year. Even better? Mark Walsh of MediaPost names our own PayPal Here™ offering as “the most widely used mobile payments service among SMBs by far.”
The rapid-fire growth of usage in this area really validates what our PayPal Here mission is all about: making in-person transactions just as seamless as the online experience. And while many a small business might still be reluctant to add a new piece of technology to their purchasing process, POS systems like PayPal Here in fact simplify hardware and increase accessibility for much lower fees than traditional terminals.
Whenever you’re ready, our Cash for Registers program is a simple and secure way to make the transition from your clunky cash-based machines. And, as a treat for making the big move with us, we’re waiving swiped credit, debit and PayPal payment card processing fees from now until January 31st, 2014 for up to $20,000 worth of eligible transactions each month (offer valid in the U.S. only and additional terms and conditions apply).
Further, we want to help you get off to a great start by making your business known to our 55+ million US (128 million worldwide) and growing customer base.
Interested businesses have until September 30th, 2013 to sign up for the program, and join us in our commitment to reimagining money and commerce.
