Google Play Store now accepts PayPal as a payment option
Google today announced a number of changes to the finances of the Google Play Store, adding new payment options and expanding existing services. Of course, the big highlight is the addition of PayPal upon checkout, which gives users even more flexibility in handing their money over to Google.
The service starts today in over 12 countries including the US, Canada and Germany, where PayPal has been added as an option in Google Wallet. Users will simply have to login with their existing PayPal account and the information will also be save for future purchases.
In addition, Google is expanding their carrier billing availability, and seven more countries including Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan can now charge purchases to their phone bill. This comes along with an expansion in Google Play Gift cards, which can now be purchased in Japan and Germany, bringing the total number of countries up to 13.
