PayPal has confirmed that they are testing payments through their platform in retail stores in partnership with Home Depot.
The company said:
We frequently run trials with our retail partners. In this case, PayPal and The Home Depot are engaged in a limited pilot program for new POS technologies. The pilot is currently being run in five stores and involves a small number of PayPal employees.
Customers get the ability to pay for items using their funds in a PayPal account. They can pay using their smartphones or special credit cards.
This program is likely to be expanded with new features and more retailers in the coming months.
