"We consider this a key collaboration for both PayPal and Walmart. We are committed to working together to make it simple and easy for people to use PayPal cash in and cash out money services at every Walmart location in the U.S. We look forward to working hand-in-hand to help people and families with their financial services needs."

"Walmart is committed to expanding access to financial services products that are convenient, easy to use and available for everyday low prices," said Daniel Eckert, Senior Vice President, Walmart Services & Digital Acceleration, Walmart. "With 90 percent of Americans living within 10 miles of a Walmart store, we know that offering PayPal cash in and cash out money services for an exclusive low fee is going to provide great value to the many people wo rely on Walmart and PayPal to help manage and move their money."
