Google Play adds Paypal as a payment option


Google have added Paypal has a payment option to Google Play – meaning the service can be used to pay for everything from apps to videos and books on the service.


The service is perhaps most well known for eBay purchases – though is now a near ubiquitous alternative to tediously typing out your 12-digit card number and faffing about with expiry dates.

Here’s hoping Google Play make things more comfortable for regular Paypal users by advertising apps in the style of “ANGRY BIRDS APP – NR MINT L@@K!!!!!!”.

The service will be available in 12 countries – including the UK. The others are the US, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, and Spain.
