Samsung, PayPal ink strategic partnership

Samsung, PayPal ink strategic partnership

Samsung is continuing to build partnerships to drive even more payments through Samsung Pay, adding PayPal support. Users simply add their PayPal account to Samsung Pay, and can then spend the balance anywhere Samsung Pay is accepted.

How often do you use Samsung Pay?

Samsung and PayPal have actually partnered in the past, starting with the launch of the Galaxy S5 smartphone back in 2014 that integrated fingerprint authentication into the device for seamless PayPal payments online and in-store.

This deal goes beyond in-store payments, though, and seriously benefits Samsung. PayPal's Braintree Direct service now supports Samsung Pay, making it easy for merchants to accept it as a form of online payment. It's a win-win, really.

Today Samsung officially announced a new partnership with PayPal, adding yet another payment option to Samsung Pay.

For PayPal, it is expected to expand its service into offline payments, it said.

Samsung said it would begin the Samsung Pay service using PayPal first in the USA before gradually expanding it to other global markets.

There are millions of PayPal users, and earlier they were stuck with limited ways to use their funds on the service. Because of this, in addition to enabling consumers to pay with PayPal inside of their Samsung Pay wallets, we're also able to allow merchants to accept Samsung Pay.

Thanks to Samsung's NFC and proprietary MST technology, Samsung Pay is the most widely-accepted mobile payment platform on the market and works nearly anywhere you can swipe or tap a card today.

The partnership method is also key to Samsung's strategy with Samsung Pay.

PayPal is focused on delivering seamless mobile commerce experiences and extending this reach through strategic partnerships.
