No idea, but I have a WoodCraft very near, and the Owner?Manager has done a number of things to have sales go through his till, that I would have never thought would work out. Have you asked locally? I can see Allen going for PayPal, it’s not “theee bank” but it is fairly mainline anymore. He certainly could know he has the funds, prior to giving up the saw, being as they are very quick transactions.

The obvious advantage to using your local brick and mortar is it may well help keep a slow store alive, so that you will have “local” Lotta folks used to, and don’t anymore. Just saying.

+1 visit local Woodcraft and ask them.

Most newer POS Bluetooth and card scanners have software that allows use of 3rd party payment processors (like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Wallet, Bit Pay, and Paypal). Question is does the retailer have it enabled. Have seen Paypal as payment option at local grocery/pet/convenience stores, and even at gas pump.

Why not take your money out of PayPal and deposit in your account ?

Thanks for the replies. I’m friends with one of the employees at my local Woodcraft and she suggested talking to the owner as well. I just thought I’d ask in case someone knew of a ship-to-store option on the order page that I’d missed.

RL, it’s a credit, not cash in my account. I don’t see the difference, but apparently it’s how PayPal works.

Buy a gift card online with your paypal credit and use it in-store for the saw purchase.

That looks like it’ll work. Thanks!

Clammy’s suggestion worked just fine. I bought email gift cards online, took them to the store the next day, and now I have a shiny new 10-326 sitting out in the shop. Seems like a pretty decent saw. Definitely a major upgrade from my 12” 1950s era Atlas Press Co saw. I’ll be putting a narrower blade on that one and keeping to use for detail cuts. I’ve used it since I was 8 years old, so it has some real sentimental value.

Thanks Clammy!
