Paypal mobile wallet service adds another 15 retailers

PayPal has picked up another fifteen retail partners for its upstart mobile wallet service and looks to be gathering momentum. First launched as part of a trial in 50 Home Depot locations earlier this year, the NFC-based initiative has been expanded to all 2,200 locations across the country. With more than 100 million active users around the globe, Paypal has already established themselves as a player in the alternative currency game. Perhaps these new retail chains will help push Google Wallet further with its own service. Maybe, just maybe, they could stop the Google service from ever gaining full traction.

The new retail announcement includes the following chains:

  • Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Advance Auto Parts
  • Aéropostale
  • American Eagle Outfitters
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Foot Locker
  • Guitar Center
  • Jamba Juice
  • JC Penney
  • Jos. A. Bank Clothiers
  • Nine West
  • Office Depot
  • Rooms to Go
  • Tiger Direct
  • Toys “R” Us

Thoughts? Do you use NFC-based payments for yourself? Are you more likely to do it with Paypal than Google?

    Ebay should allow Google Checkout! Paypal wants in Android but will and have gone to court to keep GC out of Ebay. Forget them, anyway the card/banks are and will move in on the mobile payment nfc game and you wont need a third party involved.
