Google Play Store now accepting PayPal

Google is now accepting PayPal for Play Store purchases starting today! In order to pay with PayPal, purchase something and pick your new payment option.  The new payment option is available in 12 countries, including the U.S., Canada, and Germany. I was curious if Google and PayPal would ever play ball and it finally looks like they have.

Google has also expanded their coverage of Carrier Billing to 24 countries, which means almost half of all Google Play users have this option when making purchases. Along with making Google Play gift cards available to a total of 13 countries, including Japan and Germany.

I would say that the billing department has been very busy pushing out all of these new options around the world.  Now if you don’t see the new payment options yet, don’t worry, it will come! In the mean time, watch this neat gif all about the process! PayPal Google Play Source: Android Developers Blogspot
