Today, PayPal announced the U.S. launch of PayPal Zettle, a digital point-of-sale solution that enables small businesses to sell across in-person and online channels. The latest addition to PayPal’s growing suite of omnichannel payment and commerce solutions helps small businesses adapt to meet these new customer needs, providing an integrated solution that not only helps them accept a range of payments in-person, but also helps them manage sales, inventory, reporting, and payments across channels, all in one place.

According to PayPal, PayPal Zettle, small businesses will have an integrated solution that enables them to accept a range of payments in-person with the Zettle card reader, helps them start selling online, and also helps them manage sales, inventory, reporting, and payments across channels, all in one place. PayPal Zettle will also enable businesses to leverage PayPal’s suite of payment and commerce solutions – from invoicing to PayPal’s Business Debit Mastercard. 

Partnering with PayPal for both in-person and online commerce, small businesses can offer their customers increased payment options, including credit and debit cards, PayPal and Venmo QR Codes, popular digital wallets and access to PayPal’s business lending solutions. All in-person and online sales can be easily viewed and managed through a business’s PayPal business account, and businesses will have access to their funds typically within one day. 

PayPal Zettle also offers interoperability through PayPal’s vast partner network, so businesses can easily link their PayPal Zettle accounts with their preferred e-commerce, accounting, and point-of-sale partners. PayPal Zettle is already integrated with a range of partners including BigCommerceLightspeed, QuickBooks Online and SalesVu, and will be integrating with additional partners in the coming weeks and months.  

“Consumers want seamless and integrated digital experiences no matter where they shop. As a result, small businesses need access to omnichannel payment and commerce tools to help them effectively compete and meet their customers wherever they are – in-person, online, and in-between,” said “We believe in the power of small businesses, and we will leverage PayPal Zettle to better serve in-person businesses and enable them to go digital seamlessly.” 

Jim Magats, SVP, Omni Payments, PayPal

PayPal Zettle is available to small businesses across the U.S. beginning today. Businesses can purchase their first PayPal Zettle card reader for $29, with additional readers available for $79. The transaction rate in the U.S. for card processing is 2.29% + $0.09 cents* at launch, and PayPal and Venmo QR Code transactions will be 1.9% + $0.10 cents* via PayPal Zettle.
