PayPal have announced the rollout of their POS solution, PayPal Zettle Terminal to small businesses in the U.S. following its launch in European markets last year. The Zettle Terminal is an all-in-one point-of-sale solution that offers increased mobility for small businesses. It makes accepting payments even easier by offering more flexibility for consumers.
The Terminal comes with a pre-loaded SIM card, and its combined Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity means that small businesses are no longer dependent on fixed checkout points, making the checkout completely mobile. The seller is free to complete the entire checkout process, from start to finish, wherever the customer is – on the shop floor, by the table, on the terrace, at the point of delivery, or anywhere where there’s mobile coverage. Terminal can also include an integrated barcode scanner and can be attached to a dock that has a built-in printer for on-the-spot receipt printing.
The in-store POS solution comes with the Zettle point-of-sale app pre-installed, and small businesses will get an integrated solution that not only helps them accept a range of fast and secure payments in person — including credit cards, contactless, digital wallets, and PayPal and Venmo QR Codes — but also helps them manage sales, inventory, reporting, and payments, all in one place. In addition, merchants will soon be able to access funds from their completed sales in their PayPal account typically within minutes, through a feature that PayPal is rolling out now.
We’re excited to roll out Terminal – our all-in-one, mobile point-of-sale solution – to small businesses in the U.S. so they can meet their customers wherever they are, more effectively compete, and grow, With Terminal, we will help SMBs sell seamlessly in person, bring flexibility to the checkout process, and enable businesses to offer their customers choice when it comes to how they want to pay.– Ed Hallett, Senior Director, SMB Solutions, PayPal
