Google Play Introduces PayPal Support

In a blog post Thursday, Google announced it will support PayPal as a payment option for Google Play purchases starting in 12 countries, including the U.S., UK, Germany, Canada, Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands and Spain. 

For those Google Play customers, PayPal will now appear as a purchasing option in one’s Google Wallet, which is Google’s mobile solution for storing and spending with credit, debit, gift and loyalty cards; users need only enter their credentials at checkout to purchase with PayPal.

Google also announced expanded support for carrier billing—the ability to place Google Play purchases on one’s phone bill—as well as Google Play developer support in 13 new countries and buyer currency support in 28 new countries, which means developers can now tailor pricing for their apps in up to 60 different countries.
