Is PayPal accepted in stores or bars as payment?

I've not seen it in stores, only on internet purchases. I try to avoid it as the establishment you're using doesn't get the whole amount - PayPal takes a cut.

Never heard of it for brick&mortar purchases.

On occasion, you may see it at places geared to younger people or I’ve seen a bartender post that tips are accepted that way.

Venmo is more likely to be accepted than PayPal. Venmo is taken at some food trucks, or by smaller venders, or at some bars or clubs geared towards a younger crowd. That said, I wouldn't count on it; not everywhere takes it.
