Google Play adds PayPal payment option

Google has added the ability to pay for goods on its Play Store by PayPal. The long-overdue move means you no longer need to use your credit card when you want to snare some smartphone extras or download some much-needed entertainment.

PayPal support is being introduced in 12 countries, including right here in the United Kingdom. To use it, you just need to log into your PayPal account by pressing the right key when you make your purchase.

There’s one hitch, however. Google is only accepting PayPal for software. That means if you want to snag a big-ticket item such as Nexus 5 or ChromeCast from its store, you’ll still have to use your credit or debit card.

Still, this is a move in the right direction and one which will please those who don’t feel comfortable using their cards directly with the Big G.
