PayPal will integrate its mobile payments technology with Revel Systems, an iPad point-of-sale solution provider, Revel announced today. The integration represents PayPal's latest effort to integrate with POS platforms, following recent deals with companies such as NCR, Leaf and ShopKeep POS.
"The Revel Systems and PayPal relationship will be very impactful for the point-of-sale industry as a whole," Revel Systems CEO Lisa Falzone said in a news release. "PayPal is leading the trend of digital secure payments on the consumer level, and Revel is leading the way for the next generation of mPOS, creating a collaboration that is set to deliver a new experience to customers. For years people have been using PayPal to shop online, and the integration with Revel now brings the same convenience and security to brick-and-mortar retail and food establishments, allowing consumers to pay on the go."
Revel said the POS system integration with PayPal will deliver three main benefits to consumers:
- Mobile discovery: Uses the same functionality found in the PayPal app, which enables customers to access a mobile directory of nearby establishments that accept PayPal.
- Order ahead: Customers can use the PayPal app to order in advance.
- Enhanced secure payments: PayPal's bricks-and-mortar solution uses the same security features the company uses for online commerce. Revel is fully PCI-compliant.
"PayPal is constantly executing on delivering next-generation experiences to merchants and consumers alike, working in collaboration with leading innovators like Revel," Brad Brodigan, vice president and general manager, SMB retail, PayPal, said in a news release. "The ability to order ahead at restaurants is a great value add for merchants and consumers alike."
