When we think of mobile payments like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, and others, we usually associate them with physical payments made in stores. Of course, they can be used for online purchases as well, which is what Samsung Pay is now capable of since it has recently rolled out support for PayPal.
Last year, Samsung announced that Samsung Pay would eventually get support for PayPal. Why it took them so long, we have no idea, but there are a number of users who are claiming to see PayPal as an option for a form of payment in Samsung Pay now. Better late than never.
So this means that if you’d rather use your PayPal account to pay, you will be able to use it instead of a credit card. It seems pretty easy. All users have to do is link their PayPal account and they’ll be all set.
Apparently, using PayPal will let users earn Samsung Reward points with their purchases. there’s no word on how long it will take before the option is available to all, but presumably, with some users already seeing it, it won’t take very long. At least now you have another payment option.
