Are there any fees to pay with PayPal in stores?

And whether it's in-store or online, you can still pay using PayPal in a variety of ways including with a credit card (like a PayPal credit card), debit card or your mobile device via tap and pay on eligible Android devices.



No. PayPal is free for buyers, whether you use it to pay for your purchases online or in the store.

Is it secure?

Yes. PayPal products, including in-store checkout, adhere to strict standards of antifraud and consumer protection.

Why use PayPal at the register rather than money or a credit card?

Now you need just one account to pay any way you want to pay—whether online, mobile or now in-stores. With PayPal, all your credit cards, money and bank accounts are stored in one place, giving you the flexibility to pay with the card or account of your choice while still getting all your points and rewards. Plus, you get extra security with PayPal that your financial information is not shared with the retailers when you shop.
