For Iowans who are increasingly turning to online shopping for their grocery needs, this integration means a more seamless and secure payment experience. It means less trips to the store for older or retired Iowans and more options for secure online payments with trusted and longer-standing digital payment platforms.

“Shopping online for groceries, through services such as Hy-Vee’s Aisles Online platform, has dramatically increased over the last five years. We are thrilled to innovate with partners like Hy-Vee to help improve customers’ shopping experience by providing trusted payment methods, such as PayPal and Venmo, to their consumers.”

-Kurt Campisano, Senior Vice President, Global Markets, PayPal

This integration offers several key benefits to Iowa's online grocery shoppers:

  • Seamless Checkout: The integration of PayPal and Venmo allows for a quick and easy checkout process, reducing the time spent online.
  • Secure Payments: Both PayPal and Venmo are known for their robust security measures, providing peace of mind with every transaction.
  • Increased Convenience: With more payment options, shoppers can choose the method that best fits their preferences and lifestyle.
