Mobikwik partners with Samsung Pay

Samsung has announced that its mobile payments services, Samsung Pay, now supports PayPal payments in-store, on the web, and in-app - basically anywhere that Samsung Pay is accepted.

Yes, PayPal support is finally live for Samsung Pay.

Initially, access to PayPal payments will be limited to Samsung Pay users in the USA, but it will be extended to other markets shortly.

Digital payments company MobiKwik has partnered Samsung Pay, under which consumers will be able to make payments with a single tap using select Samsung handsets.

The Chinese economy is growing faster than all expectations
Data from NBS showed that industrial output climbed 7.6% annually, faster then the 6.5% increase logged in the prior period. In the first half, the growth rate was also 6.9 percent, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said in a statement.


Samsung Pay is now fully available in 19 markets, having launched in its native South Korea back in August 2015 before landing in the U.S., China, Spain, and a number of markets across Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Its mobile payments technology, a rival to Apple Pay and Google's Android Pay, works both with NFC point-of-sale system and those using traditional mag strip technology. PayPal support will be rolled out to other markets later.

In addition, PayPal just last week announced an expanded relationship with Apple, which allowed the payments platform to be included as a payment option for App Store purchases that's now accessible via Apple's mobile devices, both in the US and in 11 new markets.

PayPal and Samsung have had a strong partnership for several years now. At PayPal, we've seen - and helped enable - a major shift to mobile.

For PayPal, it is expected to expand its service into offline payments, it said. In 2014, we worked with Samsung to enable mobile payments with just a fingerprint.
