PayPal, Officeworks team up

 

officeworks exteriorPayPal Australia has partnered with Officeworks to make it easier for SMEs to accept card payments. 

For the first time, Australian small businesses will be able to cut through the red tape and purchase PayPal Here, a Bluetooth enabled chip and PIN card reader that allows small businesses to take payments on the go,  at all of Officeworks’ 153 stores and online as part of the new partnership deal.

“Traditional payments infrastructure once meant that setting up mobile payments facilities resulted in hefty fees, long wait timesm and cumbersome policies that was unsustainable for many small businesses,” said Andrew Rechtman, senior director of SMB, retail and strategy at PayPal Australia.

“Now, anyone from a young entrepreneur to an established business owner, will be able to head into Officeworks, purchase a payments terminal and accept card payments straight away. This represents an exciting shift in the payments industry, providing businesses with access to funds with less hassle and fewer barriers to entry.”

PayPal Here turns a smartphone into a complete payments solution, allowing businesses to not only accept MasterCard and Visa credit and debit card payments, but also allows them to generate and distribute invoices and send receipts.

“With thousands of small businesses already using PayPal Here, we’re thrilled to be bringing our complete payments solution in-store at Officeworks,” said Rechtman.

“Fully encrypted and backed by PayPal’s world class security, risk and fraud management systems, this new partnership will allow more Australian businesses to securely accept multiple forms of payments, while also helping to meet growing consumer demand to pay with the digital wallet.”
