PayPal available as payment method within Samsung Pay

Monday 17 July 2017 | 17:45 CET | News

Samsung Electronics added PayPal as a payment method within Samsung Pay wherever Samsung Pay is accepted – in-app, online and in-store. This became possible as the two companies expanded their strategic partnership.

Access to PayPal will be available for all Samsung Pay users in the US and will expand to other countries soon. In addition, through Braintree, a PayPal service, merchants will be able to accept Samsung Pay as a method of payment in-app and online.

Customers will be able to use their Samsung Pay to access and use their PayPal wallet, letting them make a payment in millions of stores. Users simply add their PayPal account to Samsung Pay, and can then spend the balance anywhere Samsung Pay is accepted. In addition, end-users will continue to benefit from Samsung Pay’s value-added services, including gift cards, membership and loyalty cards.

In addition, Samsung Pay will be available via Braintree Direct, allowing merchants to accept Samsung Pay as a payment method.

This strategic partnership between Samsung and PayPal will mutually benefit both organisations’ customers. PayPal users will now be able to use their PayPal wallet for offline payment transactions at millions of merchants where Samsung Pay is currently accepted, while Samsung Pay customers can leverage PayPal’s Braintree assets for easier online checkout.
