Coinstar Begins Rollout Of PayPal Functionality On Select Kiosks

BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Coinstar, a leader in self-service coin-counting, announced a new feature available at select Coinstar® kiosks that enables consumers to conveniently and securely add coins and paper currency into or withdraw funds from their PayPal account, as well as send money to another PayPal account. The rollout began this month in Texas, Northern California and Ohio and will continue at select kiosks throughout the year.

Coinstar and PayPal conducted a test of the new service in the Dallas metropolitan area last year and quickly saw adoption and interest from users. For instance, initial test results revealed that 40% of kiosk users who used the PayPal feature went back to use PayPal on a Coinstar kiosk an average of two times a month.

As the worlds of online and traditional brick and mortar commerce continue to converge, consumers are increasingly embracing PayPal as a convenient and secure payment solution.

"PayPal on Coinstar exemplifies how we continue to empower consumers to change what they have into what they want," said Mike Skinner, president of Coinstar's Coin business.  "From the convenience of a grocery store, consumers can turn their coins and paper currency into digital spending power anywhere PayPal is accepted."

"We're delighted to work with Coinstar to enable our users to transact anytime, anywhere and in any way," said Dan Schatt, head of Financial Innovations at PayPal. "PayPal on Coinstar kiosks provide customers with a convenient way to add coins and paper currency to their PayPal account and spend their money anywhere PayPal is accepted."

Consumers can find the closest Coinstar kiosk with PayPal functionality by using the Machine Locator tool at www.coinstar.com/paypal. At these Coinstar kiosks, PayPal users can:
  • Add coins and paper currency to their PayPal account
  • Withdraw cash from their PayPal account (a voucher is issued to be redeemed in store)
  • Send funds to another PayPal user's account

Coins and paper currency added via select Coinstar kiosks are quickly available in PayPal accounts and can be spent online or in retailer stores where PayPal is accepted.
