PayPal Google Play

In the past, users were only able to to make Google Play payments using debit or credit cards, but a new change will now allow customers to make purchases using PayPal as well. As of now, Google is only supporting Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, United States, and the United Kingdom with this new feature, but we expect more countries to be added soon. One caveat here though is that users can’t really use PayPal to purchase accessories or devices, so it is only limited to apps, music, movies and books for the time being.

As you can see from the gif below, users will now find an extra payment option while clicking on the buy button for a particular app and they will simply have to add a PayPal account there. It’s pretty self explanatory beyond that. So make sure you try out this new feature and let us know what you think.
