Singapore-based blockchain firm Pundi X has integrated PayPal support for its point-of-sale device ‘Xpos.’
PayPal is the first mobile payment gateway to be integrated onto Xpos, and users from more than 30 countries can now accept funds via the payments processor.
The integration will take place over two stages, with U.S-based merchants who use Xpos able to apply for PayPay-based keyed transactions from July 1.
A PayPal app is expected to be integrated onto all Xpos devices within two weeks — completing the roll-out.
70% of Xpos users request Paypal support
Pundi X decided to launch the integration after conducting a Twitter poll asking followers which mobile payment app they would like Xpos to support first.
PayPal received almost 70% of votes, beating out WeChat Pay, Alipay, and GoPay, among others.
The integration brings credit card payments to Pundi X’s point-of-sale system, and allows cryptocurrencies to be purchased via PayPal from supporting Xpos merchants.
