PayPal extends Google partnership
Wednesday April 19 2017
PayPal is extending its partnership with Google to make it easy for consumers to use PayPal as a payment method in Android Pay wherever Android Pay is accepted, in-store, in-app and online
Consumers in the US will soon be able to use PayPal in Android Pay at retailers from Walgreens to Dunkin' Donuts.
Initially, users will be able to pay using their PayPal balance and over the coming months the company will add the ability to use cards that have been stored with PayPal, enabled by its recent tokenisation partnerships with major card networks.
Last year alone, PayPal processed $102 billion in mobile payment volume and two billion mobile payment transactions.
The PayPal integration with Android Pay is supported on versions of Android OS 4.4 and higher, including KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat.
