PayPal recently announced a major update to its iOS and Android apps creating a more seamless experience when paying for items in stores and retail outlets. Beyond just the features, the app has been redesigned to make it easier to pay using various stored accounts at different stores (ie bank accounts and credit cards). The PayPal app also has a new tab called 'Shop', which you can use to find shops or restaurants nearby that accept PayPal payments. Leena Rao talks with Hill Ferguson VP of Global Product of PayPal who demos their new payment app.

The only stores I see in app are Autozone and Dollar General, all other businesses are gone now!
There use to be an option in the PayPal Here app, for listing your store, that also is now gone! None of those functions shown in this video work anymore!
There's a local hot dog stand where I live that's on the list in the PayPal app and it has a phone icon next to their name meaning, according to this video, I can pay with my phone. But they don't have the stuff on their end to complete the transaction. So I don't know why they're on the list.
I do almost all of my transactions through paypal, because of the online stores I run, and I just don't see the point in this advancement. Paypal already offers free debit cards, that function just like normal debit cards, and they accepted almost everywhere.
Maybe I am missing some key feature? But why would you use this instead of just ordering the card for the account?
Not hating, just confused as to the target market for this product.
The Aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.
Auroras that occur in the northern hemisphere are called ‘Aurora Borealis’ or ‘northern lights’ and auroras that occur in the southern hempishere are called ‘Aurora Australis’ or ‘southern lights’.
Both Aurora’s can be seen in the northern or southern hemisphere, in an irregularly shaped oval centred over each magnetic pole. Scientists have learned that in most instances northern and southern auroras are mirror-like images that occur at the same time, with similar shapes and colours. Auroral displays can appear in many vivid colours, although green is the most common. Colours such as red, yellow, green, blue and violet are also seen occasionally. The auroras can appear in many forms, from small patches of light that appear out of nowhere to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an incredible glow.
