It has taken a long time for PayPal to become an accepted payment method for various Apple products and services, but you’ll shortly be able to select PayPal as a method of payment – if the functionality isn’t already live by the time you read this.
PayPal tells us that its customers “will be able to pay for App Store, Apple Music, iTunes and iBooks purchases across iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch using their PayPal accounts".
We here in Australia who are Apple device users “will soon be able to easily select PayPal as a method of payment across any Apple device including their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, or on iTunes from their PC".
And as you’d expect, PayPal assures us that “using the service is simple".
We’re told that “PayPal customers with a new or existing Apple ID can select 'PayPal' as a payment method in their account settings for the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes and iBooks from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, or on iTunes from their PC".
And that’s it. PayPal says “the new payment option will be configured automatically and immediately allows for PayPal’s One Touch purchasing from Apple devices, including Apple TV and Apple Watch.”
Interestingly, there’s even an “Apple Payment Partner” website which has more information on how to set up PayPal, so if you need to know more on the simple steps described above, you’ll find them and that site here.
