PayPal partners Samsung Pay

PayPal partners Samsung Pay

Samsung has added PayPal as a payment method in its mobile payments service Samsung Pay. It works anywhere Samsung Pay works, which is most payment terminals in the world thanks to Samsung's combo of NFC and MST technology.

PayPal was a close second with 34 percent acceptance, followed by MasterCard PayPass (25%), Android Pay (24%), Visa Checkout (20%), Samsung Pay (18%), Chase Pay (11%) and private label mobile wallets with 4%. Samsung Pay will also work online and in apps via PayPal's Braintree Direct, or at least it theoretically can. For offline payments, they can swipe up from the bottom of their phone screens to select either a registered card or PayPal. It, however, does not support tap-and-pay using credit and debit cards like the main app.
