Hello fellow PublicMobilers,
Hope you've all had a great Summer-despite the major cool and wetness.
I was wondering has PublicMobile thought of lauching a Paypal payment option in the future?
I started to think about this recently because I have a Paypal account and am more comfortable using Paypal as much as the cash vouchers.
Is Paypal going to be an added payment option one day?
It's hard to say, but there is an idea posted in the Public Lab for this. Head over to https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Public-Lab/Adding-Paypal-to-ways-of-Paying-for-Servic... and give it a vote and feel free to add your thoughts -- if it gets enough traction maybe it'll be implemented.
@Angelic_Fille90, if you want the option to be considered, please initiate a labs suggestion. Personally, I am comfortable using my credit card since Public Mobile is owned by a large Canadian company and is under the jurisdiction of Canadian law. It's not like they are going to take our financial security lightly. That said, if they accept PayPal, I am game.
I think the fees to service paypal payments are slightly higher than credit card payments and PublicMobile works off tight margins compared to the industry (which has a fairly high margin).
Not sure if publicmobile has already integrated their systems with Telus, but if yes, I would be more comfortable with their securit. That said, large corporate systems are not hack proof.
But it allows prviacy conscious customers another choice for payment options. I would support this if someone initiates this on the lab as others have mentioned.
