TROY, Mich., Dec. 5, 2013 - North American Bancard, a multifaceted merchant services company dedicated to helping American businesses prosper, announced today that they have teamed with Discover Financial Services, a direct banking and payment services company with one of the most recognized brands in U.S. financial services, to offer their brick-and-mortar merchants the ability to accept PayPal at the point of sale.

"That’s exactly what this new relationship with Discover and PayPal accomplishes. We’re empowering merchants to expand their revenue opportunity by accepting a new form of currency in a frictionless fashion right on their POS devices. We’re also giving PayPal customers a seamless transaction experience by offering them yet another convenient way to pay."
