PayPal Debuts "Beacon", a Bluetooth LE Enabled Device for Hands-Free Check Ins and Payments

Summary: Beacon, a new add-on hardware device for merchants that leverages bluetooth technology to enable consumers to pay at stores completely hands-free
PayPal has unveiled its latest digital payments scheme ”Beacon”,  promising what could be the holy grail of mobile wallet solutions: easier than a credit card.

What is Paypal Beacon?
PayPal Beacon is a Bluetooth Low Energy device to connect to a customer’s PayPal app when they enter a store. With one vibration or sound on your phone, you’ll know you’re checked in. And when you’re ready to make a purchase, all you have to do is say you’re paying with PayPal and the transaction is automatically completed: no cash, cards, taps, or signatures required—all hands free.

How does PayPal Beacon works?
PayPal Beacon will connect consumers to enhanced shopping experiences such as automatically ordering your favorite dish at your usual lunch spot, or getting personalized service at your favorite clothing store. In addition, you can choose to accept messages from stores that you walk into, so that you can take advantage of special offers in the produce aisle.

How can merchants take advantage of this technology?
Merchants are focused on providing easier ways for their customers to make purchases either online or in-store. As more and more consumers embrace mobile technologies to do their shopping, PayPal Beacon will allow you to connect to your customers as they enter your store. By working with our open APIs, you’ll be able to craft an experience that makes the shopping experience easier and more delightful for your customers.

What is the value for consumers?
PayPal Beacon eliminates one of the last remaining points of friction for consumers. With Beacon, you are notified with a vibration or sound that there is an enhanced shopping experience as soon as you walk in to a store. You can get notified immediately when your prescription is ready, order your usual lunch at your favorite restaurant, or simply walk to the counter with your purchases and say you’re paying with PayPal—all done hands-free. The merchant does the rest and you receive your receipt electronically.
