Samsung has added PayPal as a payment method in its mobile payments service Samsung Pay. Effectively, Pay users can now use their PayPal balance to make purchases anywhere – in-app, online and in eligible stores.
“Users simply add their PayPal account to Samsung Pay, and can then spend the balance anywhere Samsung Pay is accepted,” the South Korean tech giant said in a press release.
Currently, the feature is only available in the United States, but the company says it will expand to other countries soon – specific markets and exact timeframes, however, weren’t revealed.
This comes just a few months after Google announced that it’s teaming up with PayPal for Android Pay in the US. The feature started rolling out in the country in May.[Source”indianexpress”]
