PayPal, an online payment company, earlier this year began offering the first in-store payment option at Home Depot.
Now, 15 more retailers are offering PayPal in stores.
Those retailers include Abercrombie & Fitch, Advance Auto Parts, Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker, JC Penney, Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Office Depot and Toys R Us.
The PayPal option allows customers to pay without using a credit or debit card. Instead, customers with existing PayPal accounts pay using their cellphone number and PIN or a PayPal payment card and PIN.
PayPal has said that the payment option is convenient for consumers who are increasingly relying on technology and helps retailers by collecting consumer information and enabling them to offer coupons and other incentives.
