PayPal Here is Available to Buy in the UK

Merchants can now accept payments using the PayPal Chip & PIN card reader linked to the Here iOS or Android app via bluetooth.

PayPals system is also compatible with the Check In photo recognition feature launched recently for consumers who want to pay using their mobile in store.

PayPal is late to market in the UK, beaten by a host of mobile payments startups from across Europe, but already has infrastructure that is familiar to buyers and sellers alike. The £99 price tag puts PayPal at the top end compared to others in the sector. It charges 2.75 per cent per transaction, in line with many of the other systems on offer.

 We first reported on PayPal Here back in March last year and the company announced in February 2013 that it would be coming to the UK.
