PayPal support is coming to Samsung Pay

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

Mobile wallet Mobikwik has announced its association with Samsung Pay, through which the wallet is integrated with Samsung Pay Mini to enable one-tap payments at merchants using Mobikwik. The partnership also allows merchants who use Braintree, PayPal's processing subsidiary, to accept Samsung Pay as a checkout option in-app and online. This partnership will allow our mutual customers to pay across even more mobile contexts, as consumers increasingly turn to their phones to manage and move their money.

Samsung Pay started with support for a subset of credit and debit cards when it launched nearly two years ago.

PayPal has made a series of deals over the previous year aimed at giving its mobile wallet more exposure for direct checkout.

PayPal is the largest global payment platform that operates at scale on both the consumer and merchant side of the network.

The delay in voting this week could have an effect on how people perceive the bill, Paul said Sunday on CBS's " Face the Nation ". The Senate bill would allow health insurance companies to charge people with pre-existing conditions higher premiums.

To use the service either for online or offline payments, users must first register their PayPal accounts on Samsung Pay.

Samsung Pay is now fully available in 19 markets, having launched in its native South Korea back in August 2015 before landing in the U.S., China, Spain, and a number of markets across Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

PayPal and Samsung have had a strong partnership for several years now.

Neither PayPal nor Samsung has indicated exactly when support will be added, with "coming soon" being the only hint at a timescale.
