PayPal Holdings (NASDAQ: PYPL), the US-based online payments firm, announced on Wednesday the official launch of PayPal Zettle for the United States, a digital point-of-sale solution that enables small businesses to sell across in-person and online channels. According to the press release, small businesses could implement the new solution to accept a range of in-person payments thanks to the Zettle card reader.
With such a product, small companies could sell online and handle inventories, reporting payments, among other features. That said, PayPal Zettle will allow businesses to implement additional tools, from invoicing to the business debit card offered by the payments firm giant. “Consumers want seamless and integrated digital experiences no matter where they shop. As a result, small businesses need access to omnichannel payment and commerce tools to help them effectively compete and meet their customers wherever they are, in-person, online and in-between. We believe in the power of small businesses, and we will leverage PayPal Zettle to better serve in-person businesses and enable them to go digital seamlessly,” Jim Magats, SVP in Omni Payments at PayPal, commented.
