Samsung Pay gets PayPal support in the US

PayPal support now available for Samsung Pay users
Samsung Pay
PayPal is now a payment method available in-app, online, and in-store, in all locations where Samsung Pay is accepted. This starts with the United States, but other countries will receive the feature "soon" as well.

US-based Samsung Pay customers can finally enjoy PayPal support, but accessibility to this feature is currently limited to the local market. However, the other countries where Samsung Pay is already available should get support for payments using one's PayPal balance in the near future as well.

According to the official press release, "Users simply add their PayPal account to Samsung Pay, and can then spend the balance anywhere Samsung Pay is accepted." This means that the PayPal balance can be used to pay in stores, online, as well as in-app (in the last two cases, via PayPal's service Braintree Direct).

In addition to the above, Samsung Pay users in the US can still benefit from gift cards, membership, and loyalty cards. In addition to the US, Samsung Pay is currently available in 17 more markets, including South Korea, China, Russia, India, Spain, Australia, Brazil, Switzerland, Hong Kong, or the United Kingdom.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
