PayPal finds way into Samsung Pay
Samsung has announced an expanded strategic partnership with PayPal, adding PayPal as a payment method within Samsung Pay wherever Samsung Pay is accepted, whether in-app, online and in-store, according to a press release.
Access to PayPal will be available for all Samsung Pay users in the U.S. and will expand to other countries soon. Additionally, 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, according to the release. Additionally, users will continue to benefit from Samsung Pay's unique value-added services, including gift cards, membership and loyalty cards.
Samsung said Samsung Pay will be available via Braintree Direct, enabling merchants to accept Samsung Pay as a payment method. With a few lines of code, merchants will be able to integrate Samsung Pay in-app and online.
