PayPal now a payment method within Android Pay

PayPal has extended its relationship with Google to enable PayPal as a payment method within Android Pay wherever Android Pay is accepted, in-store, in-app and online, the company wrote in a blog post.

U.S. consumers will be able to use PayPal in Android Pay at retailers from Walgreens to Dunkin' Donuts, according to PayPal.

"This partnership will enable our customers to pay across even more contexts, and will extend PayPal's mobile leadership and reach as consumers become more comfortable shopping and buying on their mobile devices," Bill Ready, executive vice president and chief operating officer at PayPal, wrote in the blog post.

The PayPal integration with Android Pay is supported on versions of Android OS 4.4 and higher, including KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat.

Ready also announced an expanded relationship with Wells Fargo to "soon enable our joint customers to pay with their Wells Fargo credit or debit card for contactless payments in-store."
