Default Paypal will become an in-store payment, already available at Home Depot

I went to home depot today and noticed a "Pay with paypal" option on the credit card screen at the register. I googled and found an article stating that Paypal will become another payment option at major retail places.

Here is the link:

Stores follow Home Depot lead and take PayPal to cash register - BostonHerald.com


It says "A host of retailers soon will allow customers to make in-store purchases through PayPal by using their mobile phone number or swiping their PayPal payment card."

If I can get all of my numbers forwarded to my cell phone, i wonder if this will work to make payments. And hopefully these stores even have visa gift cards

Ppl must be crazy to want to use PayPal for anything.
Real credit cards give you cash backs when you use them, but not PayPal.

Probably get your account limited if you buy too much fertilizer at home depot.


Even worse, don't try buying a chainsaw there, that may seem suspicious. Another limitation. You may have to show id, proof of addy, and ssn at the checkout

How would you do it without a pp debit card?

Majority here do not have pp debit cards to pay.

Mobile phone number might work but I can see that not working too well as it does not seem very secure to me.

Whatever forwarded number you use should be fine, I paid a rental app fee with PayPal once using their computer and ip and worked out fine so I'm sure a phone number would be a lot more secure than that.

I'm assuming you don't need the paypal debit card because that is simply a Visa payment. It specifically has a pay with paypal button on the card reader at the register. I haven't clicked on it yet, but i will most likely in the next day or two next time i go.

I tried doing this the other day in my local Home Depot, but they said it wasn't available yet. Weird.

That would be hilarious if that were to happen.
I assume they would just block the account from completing the transaction, without limiting, unless necessary.
