Paypal lets you withdraw money to your bank account, but it usually takes one day for the funds to make it over. In June, the company announced instant bank transfers using eligible debit cards linked to your Paypal account. Those would typically happen very fast (few minutes up to 30 minutes) and instead of being free, they'd cost $0.25 per transaction.
The option, however, was only rolling to select beta testers. Now it appears to be live for everyone on the latest Paypal update on the Play Store. It should only work in the US though — Paypal hasn't yet announced if it will ever come to other countries. Read More

Yesterday PayPal updated its Android app to take advantage of Xoom, a service that allows you to transfer money internationally. PayPal acquired Xoom back in 2015 and only began integrating Xoom's features into its own services late last year. With Xoom users can send money to people in over 62 countries via a few different means, including topping up prepaid phones. Anyone who may be regularly sending cash to friends or family abroad will likely welcome the new Xoom integration. Read More

Paypal announced in early 2016 a desire to return to the idea of NFC payments in the wake of Apple and Google's success. Earlier this morning, PayPal announced the ability to link it to Android Pay, so you could at least use your PayPal funds over NFC that way.

I'm sure we all know PayPal by now - internet payments, used for eBay purchases, fees added, etc. PayPal Here, however, might be a little less well-known; it is a card reader for businesses to get paid on an Android device instead of a card reader. In a move to ensure security, the app has been updated with fingerprint support, following its addition in the parent app back in August last year.
The app does not allow screenshots to be taken with it open, so I've had to resort to taking pictures of the phone with the app on screen. Read More

That process just got easier with the addition of 7-Eleven to the list of supported retailers in the latest app update. Read More
