    Since the launch of Samsung Pay, Samsung has been aggressively working to get more financial companies onboard to support its payment service. As part of the efforts, Samsung announced PayPal integration for Samsung Pay in the US in July last year. For reasons best known to them, Samsung Pay didn’t receive the PayPal support so far. Nine months after the original announcement, Samsung seems to be finally rolling out PayPal support for Samsung Pay in the US.

    Gradually rolling out

    Many Samsung Pay users in the US have reported online that the new Samsung Pay update on Google Play has added support for PayPal accounts. The changelog on Google Play for the Samsung Pay’s latest update also mentions PayPal support. Samsung users need to have the recently released beta v2.8.29 of the Samsung Pay app to get PayPal integration. Even with that version of the app, there is no guarantee that users will get the PayPal integration instantly. Samsung states in the app update changelog that it might take 1-2 days for the ‘Add PayPal’ option to appear in the updated app. While we can’t confirm independently, there are also reports online stating the feature is currently rolling out only for Galaxy Note 8 users in the US.

    The option to add a PayPal account is listed under the Add section of the Samsung Pay app. The linking process is straightforward, and once the PayPal account is linked, Samsung Pay users can choose PayPal as a payment method to pay for goods and services. Samsung Pay is already one of the most popular mobile payment solutions out there because of its universal acceptance and ease of use. The new PayPal integration will make it even better.

    If you are from the US and have received PayPal support in Samsung Pay app already, do let us know your experience in the comments section below.
