Customers In Turkey Can Now Use PayPal To Buy Apps, Games, And Books From Google Play

The standard way to buy content from the Play Store is to key in a credit or debit card number, but there are many alternative approaches to choose from. You can buy credit online, purchase a gift card from a store, have your carrier send you a bill, or connect Google Wallet to your PayPal account.

PayPal support has to roll out on a country by country basis, and now Turkey has made the list.

[Deal Alert] Paypal Is Giving Away £3 To Spend On Google Play In The UK

I don't know about you but I'm not used to Paypal offering stuff for free. Actually the company's policy always seems to be about nickeling and diming at every opportunity it gets, so today is your chance (maybe?) to redeem some of the monies you lost to Paypal in a currency exchange or transaction fee.

PayPal 5.10.1 Update Adds Stored Gift Cards, Arabic And Hebrew Language Support

Some people download a million apps to their Android phone, one for each and every activity. Coincidentally, these are also the people who ask their brother why their phone, which was lightning fast when they got it, is suddenly struggling to open the homescreen under the load of three different QR code readers. (Not that I'm pointing fingers. Bekie.) For those who prefer to keep fewer apps installed, the latest PayPal update adds the ability to scan and retrieve gift cards.

That fingerprint reader that came with your Samsung Galaxy gadget can secure your lockscreen, but unlocking your device isn't the only task it can help speed up.

Now this ability has come to the Play Store version of the app.

Google Play Expands Paypal Support To 6 New Countries: Australia, Greece, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, and Sweden

Back in May 2014, Google Play started accepting Paypal as a payment method in 12 countries around the world including the US, UK, France, Germany, and more. Those of you unlucky enough to live outside of this approved list were left having to use carrier billing or a silly plastic credit card to get their fix of apps, games, and various entertainment things. If you live in Australia, Greece, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, or Sweden, and hated this exclusion, the Google Gods might be smiling down on you now because Paypal payments are now available for you too.

PayPal Here Expands To Fit The Larger Screens Of Android Tablets

Several years back this company called Square produced a product that let people accept credit card payments on their smartphones using this portable swiper-thingy that plugs into the device's headphone jack. PayPal saw this and decided that it wanted in on this action, so it produced a similar offering known as PayPal Here. The solution worked with phones, but many businesses relying on such products for point-of-sale like to use tablets instead. Now PayPal Here works with those too.

PayPal For Android v5.5 Brings Loyalty Cards And Faster Logins, But It Gives Check Scanning The Boot

Updates are typically exciting, but just like they can add new features, they can also take them away. Version 5.5 of PayPal's Android app tells precisely this type of story. The latest release adds in the ability to link loyalty cards to an account and reduce the strain on wallets everywhere. It also brings in faster logins, though this second change takes place behind the scenes, as the login screen looks just like it did before.

[Weekend Poll] Will / Would You Use PayPal On The Google Play Store Over Wallet Or Gift Cards?

Earlier this week, Google rolled out a Play Store update and announced support for billing via PayPal on the Play Store. While the list of initial countries supported is relatively small compared to the overall number of countries with access to paid content on the store, it seems inevitable that this list will grow as time goes on.

In many countries, consumers have limited access to credit cards, and Google Play gift cards are either unavailable or inconvenient as an alternative.

PayPal Here Direct Payment Service App Gets A Major Facelift And Dynamic Search In 2.0 Update

PayPal's Here direct sale and money transfer service is an admirable rival to the similar Square, and before today its standard Android app was perfectly fine. But you can't deny that it looked a little... iPhoney. Thankfully the second release of the PayPal Here app brings the user interface more in line with other polished Android apps, and throws a little expanded functionality in for good measure.
