Following in the footsteps of Android Pay, Samsung Pay has announced a new way to pay for goods both online and in brick-and-mortar stores: using your PayPal Balance.
The feature is currently only available in the United States, though it should make its way to more regions — including India and the United Kingdom — in the near future.
“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,” writes Samsung in a post on its digital Newsroom.
Once you’ve linked your PayPal account, you can continue to Samsung Pay Reward Points — just like you would with a regular credit card.
Strangely, Apple Pay is missing from the list
At present, the only (popular) mobile payment platform that’s still yet to introduce support for PayPal is Apple Pay, which is strange seeing as iTunes recently added compatibility.
