UK high street store to accept PayPal

By Chris Dawson October 23, 2007 - 9:10 am

New LookNew Look are due to launch an ecommerce website prior to Christmas and top of their priorities is ensuring their young target audience can use it. According to New Look Director, Shaun Wills, many in-store transactions are still cash based, many of their customers are young without access to credit cards and PayPal offers the perfect way to transact with them.

If someone has sold on eBay the chances are they have a balance in their PayPal account, and rather than withdraw it New Look will offer the chance to respend that cash online.

The website is to be built by e-InBusiness who PayPal have announced a new partnership with. They have developed over 70 ecommerce sites including those for Dreams, Conran and Millets, so don’t be surprised if more high street stores start accepting PayPal soon!

    Monarch Airlines announced yesterday they would accept PP too, so I’d imagine the rest of the cheap flight market in the UK isn’t that far behind either.

    The acceptance of PayPal as the online payments standard in the UK can only be good news for eBay sellers.

    The acceptance of PayPal as the online payments standard in the UK can only be good news for eBay shareholders.

    Paypal being accepted and promoted by more big name non-eBay names/brands is even better news for web site owners who use it as a payment method.

    I agree. Tesco / Sainsbury’s Local should accept PayPal. Otherwise it’s a big pain to go there, manually search for what you want and stand in long queues for payment…

    Some kind of debit card linked straight into your PayPal balance would be just amazing.
