Last week, we visited the PayPal shopping showcase in Tribeca where PayPal had set up a number of vignettes highlighting the future of payment to inspire retailers to looking beyond their current payment options. Since they opened last November, more than one of their future payment methods have become a reality.

We had a chance to talk to Anuj Nayar, Global Director of Communications, about PayPal’s new offline strategy, why PayPal Here is ultimately a better solution than Square and how PayPal wants to change the nature of payments.

Though the PayPal shopping showcase is now closed in New York, it was so popular that PayPal has recently opened a similar showcase in San Jose. Not only is it a good way to highlight their products, but it has allowed retailers to rethink how they can accept payments as a way to move from multiple payment solutions to a single one.
