PayPal is looking to eliminate cash registers and wallets to create a digital payment ecosystem in retail

PayPal wants merchants to get rid of their traditional cash registers and opt for its new program: Cash for Registers. 

Cash for Registers will reward merchants who decide to trade in their cash register for a solution like PayPal Here -- which allows payments to be processed on-the-go via an iPad, iPhone or Android device. 

What will merchants receive for ditching their cash registers, exactly? PayPal will give them free credit, debit card, check, and PayPal processing for the remainder of the year (as long as they're a qualifying U.S. business). 

In addition to free processing, PayPal will spread the word about businesses who participate in Cash for Registers to its 55+ million U.S. (128 million worldwide) customers.

PayPal said it is partnering with ERPLY, ShopKeep, Vend and more in order to launch the service. 

While it doesn't launch til next month, businesses can sign up for it here

I decided to stop using it when I got ripped off by someone on ebay who sent me burned DVDs instead of the real ones I thought I was buying. Both paypal and ebay - work it out with the thief. Me - fu, I'll never use your services again.

You do realize YOUR using Paypal had nothing to do with the product you received?
It was your fault for picking the bad DVDs not Paypal or ebay.

Yes. But neither paypal nor ebay would help me in any way. If I had been using a credit card my credit card company would say - ok, we will reverse the charges and investigate. Both paypal and ebay said, "oh, sorry. Better luck next time." ebay even took down my negative rating of the seller when I stated he/she was selling counterfeit DVDs.

Basically there is no recourse with paypal.

Don't see how it was his fault. If you purchase something that you believe to be the original DVD and not a copy (which is illegal by the way) then he's not at fault. The only way I can see if this is his fault is if the seller said these were copies, but then Ebay would be abiding an illegal act.

If Ebay allows a seller to sell copied DVDs via their website, they can be held liable for DRM or at the least copyright violations, especially if they don't act upon it. Paypal would also be complicit in that if the buyer proclaims that they purchased something and got something illicit in return and Paypal didn't act, then they are also complicit.

The buyer did everything that he was supposed to but the people who were responsible for making sure that these transactions are legal failed in their duty.
