Office Depot Installs PayPal POS System in 51 Locations

PayPal is the big name in online payments even if it seems as many people hate the company as like it. PayPal is pushing to get into retail stores so that more people will sign up for the service. Office Depot is testing the PayPal point of sale service in 51 of its locations right now.

The slow roll out is to work the bugs out of the system and see if it adds benefit to the shopping experience for people. The problem is that the system, which requires the user to enter their mobile number and a PIN, is carrier limited. I'm also not sure it would see many users.

The system ties to the PayPal wallet in the cloud system and the idea is to let people pay without having to dig in a wallet. I think it would be just as fast to get out a debit card. Apparently, the users can also use their PayPal credit card and a PIN.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
