Vodafone has announced that their Vodafone Wallet mobile payment service for Android now comes with support for PayPal in the UK.
The Vodafone Wallet will now allow you to link your PayPal account to your wallet and makes contactless payments in the UK up to 30.
Vodafone and PayPal have joined forces to allow UK customers to make contactless payments in shops, restaurants and on transport services with their Android smartphones, funded from their PayPal accounts.
From today, customers can link their PayPal account to Vodafone Pay to purchase goods and services simply by tapping their smartphone in more than 400,000 places across the UK that accept contactless payments. Vodafone Pay customers will also be able to use the service to pay to travel across the Transport for London (TfL) network as well as on National Rail services in and around London that accept Contactless and Oyster.
Purchases of up to £30 can be made at any contactless terminal and users wishing to spend more can do so using Vodafone Pay at participating retailers through the use of a PIN. In addition to using their PayPal account, Vodafone customers can now add their Visa and MasterCard bank credit and debit cards to Vodafone Pay so they don’t have to carry plastic cards.
