PayPal added to Samsung Pay

An announcement has been made on the Samsung Mobile Press website that shows the companies are working together to add PayPal as a payment option within the Samsung Pay application. Samsung Pay now supports payments through PayPal in-store, on the web and in-app.

Along with extending PayPal's usability at physical stores, the collaboration between the two companies should also support Samsung Pay online.

First rolling out to users in the U.S. and then other countries, the team up combines Samsung's tap-to-pay platform with the digital wallet service. In 2014, we worked with Samsung to enable mobile payments with just a fingerprint.

Samsung is entering into an "extended partnership" with PayPal to bring PayPal support to Samsung Pay. Users simply add their PayPal account to Samsung Pay, and can then spend the balance anywhere Samsung Pay is accepted. Customers will also still receive Samsung Pay benefits like rewards points and gift cards.

PayPal has similar partnerships with Visa and MasterCard, as well as deals with Citi, FIS, and Facebook, among others.

There are millions of PayPal users, and earlier they were stuck with limited ways to use their funds on the service.

"Samsung Pay will be available via Braintree Direct, allowing merchants to accept Samsung Pay as a payment method". Now, with the integration of PayPal wallet, customers can continue to use Samsung Pay in the most convenient way possible.

Secure: Samsung Pay is built with three levels of security- biometric authentication, card tokenization and Samsung's comprehensive mobile security platform, Samsung Knox, providing multi-layered protection from the device down to its kernel. THis new addition will add one more jewel to the Samsung Pay's crown.
