BJ’s, PayPal Pair For Faster Online Checkout

BJ’s Wholesale Club has announced that members who shop on will now be able to pay for their purchases with PayPal, PayPal Credit and PayPal One Touch. Through the partnership, members won’t have to input their card payment information when making a purchase on

“We’re committed to making shopping easier and more convenient for our members, which is why we’re excited to partner with PayPal,” said Rafeh Masood, BJ’s senior vice president and chief digital officer, in a press release. “With PayPal, members now have even more payment options when shopping on, saving time and money.”

The integration of PayPal and PayPal Credit allows BJ’s members to pay for their whole online cart without having to enter card credentials. Members can also enjoy an automatic log-in process through the utilization of PayPal One Touch, as well as getting to skip the email or password process when paying on the website if they’re using the same device and browser. In addition, purchases of $99 or more can be paid through PayPal Credit, offering no interest if paid in full within six months.

This integration is the latest digital convenience for BJ’s members, with others including Shop Pick Up in-Club, Add-to-Card digital coupons and the BJ’s mobile app. All of these upgrades, plus the changes that will continue to appear on BJ’s online throughout this year, come as part of a broader mobile improvement that BJ’s began undertaking last fall to bring a more hassle-free digital experience.

“The new mobile site is an important step in our omnichannel transformation. More and more members use their mobile devices every day, and enhancing the BJ’s mobile experience makes shopping more convenient for our members,” said Masood.

BJ’s is also reportedly preparing for an IPO. The company has not said how much stock it plans to sell, or its expected price as of yet. In April, The Wall Street Journal said the company could be valued between $2 billion and $3 billion, with its private-equity backers raising at least $400 million.
