I am going to start out by saying that I have read - and tried - all of the links in related threads. At this point I assume that this was a project that didn't work out between PayPal and HomeDepot.
The PayPal icon has been on the checkout screens at HomeDepot for at least 3 years now, and I have yet to hear from a single person - online, at HomeDepot, from PayPal, in real world, etc. - that has ever successufully used this method to pay at checkout for in-store purchases. About as close as I can come is to buy online, and pick-up in-store.
Please respond to this thread only if you have personally linked your account to a way to pay directly at the register at Home Depot. I am already aware of the "debit card" approach. That is not what I am looking for.
I think that I am looking for a "white unicorn", but I would love to be wrong.
Thanks in advance!
I made a few in-store purchases with home depot and foot locker before via mobile number with PIN. Haven't had any problem yet.
you need to have the mobile apps and set it up.
Your mobile PIN will be associated with each of your payment-activated phones.
I've made sure I have the Paypal app. I've made sure I have a pin # associated with my mobile #. But when I go to my local HD store and choose PayPal as my payment choice and enter my phone #, it says processing but doesn't work. PP and HD employees have been zero help. 5th time a charm? Help!
See if this works:
Make sure you have the latest version of the app.
Type in Home Depot in search bar to find store.
Click the store.
4-Digit code appears.
Enter the 4-digit code in the card swipe machine after selecting PayPal on it's screen or let the cashier scan the barcode on the phone.
What you are essentially doing is paying directly from the app, not the mobile number & pin.
The mobile/pin method is prolly deprecated or something.
This method seemed to make the most sense, but the Home Depots in Phoenix/Tempe/Chanlder AZ area did not appear in the list for me. Ultimately went to the full paypal site and set up my PIN then paid via phone number and pin using the keypad.
