Back in July of last year, Samsung and PayPal announced a partnership that would see the PayPal added to the Samsung Pay as a means to buy things using your Galaxy smartphone. At the time, it was confirmed that PayPal support would be rolling out “soon”, but since then, word on a rollout has gone quiet. Until today.
PayPal and Samsung have confirmed that PayPal support in Samsung Pay is rolling out beginning now. That means that Samsung Pay users can use PayPal to buy goods from physical retail stores.
To get it to work, you will need to select the “+” icon in the top right of the Samsung Pay home screen. Once there, you will see an “Add PayPal” option, which you’ll need to select. Follow the onscreen procedure from there to add your PayPal account to the mix. PayPal customers will continue to earn Samsung Rewards every time they use Samsung Pay as well.
Now that PayPal is officially available to use within Samsung Pay, do you think you’ll be using it?
