PayPal has launched a pilot mobile payment project in Sao Paulo. Through the PayPal app, users can check-in within a store, do their shopping, confirm the payment on the credit card linked to the PayPal account and receive a proof of payment via email. Initially, the project runs in a store of the Suplicy Cafes Especiais network in the neighborhood of Jardins, Sao Paulo. The PayPal app also will gain a function to search for nearby shops and restaurants that accept the smartphone as payment, reports Brazilian weekly Exame.
