PayPal has just launched its PayPal Here APIs which will allow for point-of-sale transactions using wireless mobile payments via PayPal.

Initially, the PayPal Here APIs have been integrated with POS systems from MICROS, Island Pacific, Kounta and Vend, allowing stores that use these systems to accept mobile payments via PayPal.

In order to pay using PayPal Here, customers must use a dedicated app to locate and check in to a store before placing an order. Once the order is made, they can pay using their PayPal account straight from their smartphone.

The API allows the store to receive a photo ID and name of the customer, which they can then use to improve customer service and drive customer loyalty programs.

According to PayPal, the first company to use the technology is Sonoma Bakery, which has included the PayPal payment system into its six retail stores. Next will be Mexican restaurants Guzman Y Gomez, fashion retailer Glue store and educational retailer Crayons. All three will introduce the PayPal payment system via their current point of sale system.
