Merchants in quick service restaurants like Pressed and Panda Express are seeing variety in the payment methods they offer correlate to their ability to create a connection with the modern-day consumer.
Pressed recently added PayPal and Venmo as payment methods at checkout and within the first week, more than half of their transactions were on PayPal and Venmo via a mobile device. Moreover, they saw an increase of 69% in conversion rates and 40% higher average order value (AOV) compared to traditional card payments2.
Specialty retailers like Hot Topic and BoxLunch have recently added PayPal and Venmo into the checkout experience to reach their audience of young adults. Recent Venmo research shows that shoppers are 19% more likely to complete a purchase with Venmo than with traditional payment methods, and in the clothing and fashion industry, Venmo can increase unplanned purchases by as much as 34%4.
Next-generation fashion retailer REVOLVE is working with Venmo to offer their online experiences in-person. By offering Venmo QR Code, Venmo Debit and Venmo Credit Card payments at the REVOLVE Social Club pop-up in Los Angeles, Venmo and REVOLVE cater to their highly engaged audience of Millennials and Gen Z. Since opening in early March, more than half of the payments at the pop-up have been through Venmo QR Codes5. The addition of in-person payments helps bring the experience full circle for customers who can also now checkout with Venmo and PayPal at REVOLVE.com.
Micro and small businesses like Speakcheesy, The Bullpen and Windybush Hay Farms recently switched to PayPal Zettle, PayPal's point-of-sale solution, which allows these companies to accept PayPal and Venmo in-store without much technical integration. The Zettle card reader also helps manage sales, inventory, reporting and payments across online and physical retail channels.
