In a move designed to capture more of the online wallet business, PayPal’s newly redesigned app now offers $100 worth of in-store deals, and “order ahead” and “skip the line” features.
“Consumers have been behaving the same over the last 100 or 150 years,” said Jeff Loman, a group product manager for PayPal Mobile. “You’re there, you swipe in your card. Payments have never been an issue; you swipe the card and it works. … Saving that offer, being able to redeem it — I think that’s really how you win or how you get people to use the products. Because they like getting that additional value.”
Can PayPal overcome their somewhat sketchy reputation to lead the mobile payments pack?
