PayPal with Samsung Pay on Your Phone

PayPal is an easy and reliable way to take control of your money. You can store money in your PayPal account, or use it to make in-store purchases. Now PayPal and Samsung Pay have joined forces, so buying stuff is even easier! If you don't have one already, set up a PayPal account or if you want more information, you can check out PayPal customer support

Set Up PayPal with Samsung Pay

If you've already got a PayPal account, connecting it to Samsung Pay is really simple. Follow along to combine your two accounts.

Open Samsung Pay on your phone, and then touch Wallet. Touch the ADD icon in the upper right-hand corner. Under Add payment card, touch ADD PAYPAL. You will be directed to PayPal.com. Enter your PayPal credentials, and then touch Log In. Select your desired option for saving your sign-in information, and then touch Next, and enter a PIN specifically for PayPal on Samsung Pay. Enter the PIN one more time. Finally, review the details, change the desired settings, and select Agree & Continue. Your PayPal is now linked to your Samsung Pay! Touch DONE.

Note: A PayPal account and an internet connection is required for setup.

Use PayPal with Samsung Pay

Until now, you could only use PayPal for online purchases. If your account is connected to Samsung Pay, you'll be able to use PayPal in stores that have NFC readers or accept Samsung Pay.

From the Lock screen: Swipe up the Samsung Pay tab from the bottom of the screen. Swipe to the PayPal card and then select the desired unlock method. Enter your unlock credentials, and then place the back of your phone against the card or NFC reader. 

From Samsung Pay: Open the Samsung Pay app. Select Wallet, and then select the desired PayPal card. Select the desired unlock method and enter your unlock credentials. Select PIN, enter your Samsung Pay PIN, and then place the back of your phone against the card or NFC reader.

Note: The NFC feature on your phone needs to be turned on.
