PayPal adds gas stations, grocery stores in retail push

PayPal unveiled new deals with a US chain of gas stations and a grocery store operator on Monday, as the payments division of eBay Inc tries to expand its service further into physical retail locations.

PayPal said it signed payment deals with Mapco Express, a unit of Delek US Holdings which runs more than 440 retail fuel and convenience stores, and Spartan Stores, which distributes groceries to more than 400 locations, including 97 of its own stores.

That helped bring the number of PayPal physical, or brick-and-mortar, retail partners to 23, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Home Depot and J.C. Penney.
