If you use Samsung Pay, you can check-out with PayPal now

Following recent news that the company is partnering with Apple for payments on iTunes and in the App Store, among other places, the company announced July 17 that it's expanding its partnership with Samsung to enable PayPal as a payment method in any channel Samsung Pay is accepted, according to the PayPal blog.

PayPal specifically said that the support is "coming soon", so you may not see the option just yet. The next month, PayPal announced they were adding Venmo as a payment option within their own service, and today it looks like they're making their way to Samsung Pay as well. It works any place that Samsung Pay is accepted; the service is active in 19 different markets, including the United States and South Korea, and it's now available in the UK, too. After that, you can make payments directly through your PayPal wallet. It does not, however, support tap-and-pay using credit and debit cards like the main app.

There are millions of PayPal users, and earlier they were stuck with limited ways to use their funds on the service. Even though Android Pay brought PayPal support earlier than Samsung Pay but the latter is more popular as a payment service.

This move of Samsung and PayPal is profitable for both the companies.

This is not the first time PayPal and Samsung partnered with each other. 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.

Simple: To make a payment with Samsung Pay, simply swipe up from the home button, scan a fingerprint or verify with iris scanning1 (which can be different from the authentication registered to unlock the device), and tap the back of the phone on a POS machine.
