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

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

Samsung Electronics Co. said Monday it has clinched a strategic partnership with US online payment service provider PayPal for an expansion of its mobile payment services.

Coming soon, consumers in the USA will be able to use PayPal within Samsung Pay at millions of retailers. To start with, PayPal will be available as a payment method in the U.S. first, but it will expand to other countries in the future. Now consumers will be able to make payments easily on Samsung's budget and mid-range phones. Right now, access to PayPal payments is limited to Samsung Pay users in the United States but it will extend soon. Adding support for PayPal seems like a big win for users.

MobiKwik's mobile wallet will also be available soon to Samsung Pay users, it added. PayPal's Braintree Direct service now supports Samsung Pay, making it easy for merchants to accept it as a form of online payment.

The partnerships keep coming for PayPal.

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. Samsung phones have MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) hardware under the hood, which makes Samsung Pay usable at outlets where debit or credit cards are accepted. At PayPal, we've seen - and helped enable - a major shift to mobile. Now, with the integration of PayPal wallet, customers can continue to use Samsung Pay in the most convenient way possible. PayPal shares on hit an all-time high after the Apple partnership news was released.

Secure: Samsung Pay is built with three levels of security- biometric authentication, card tokenization and Samsung's comprehensive mobile security platform, Samsung Knox, providing multi-layered protection from the device down to its kernel.
