NEW YORK (AP) — PayPal says it is expanding its payment service to more brick-and-mortar retailers, including RadioShack and Dollar General stores.

EBay Inc.’s payments subsidiary is announcing Monday that as of the end of 2012 it had agreements with 23 retailers to accept PayPal in their stores.

It’s the latest step in PayPal’s push to recruit store-based retailers as it expands from offering online payments.

PayPal is already accepted at retailers such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker and the Home Depot, among others. It also has a deal with Discover Financial Services to let retailers that take Discover cards to also process PayPal payments.

Separately, PayPal is also unveiling a pilot program in Emeryville, Calif., with smoothie chain Jamba Juice that lets people order ahead using the PayPal app.
