Google Play gets Paypal support in 12 countries, expanded carrier billing and developers sales as well
If you’re a regular Paypal user you are probably used to finding support for it at just about every place you turn, including popular sites like NewEgg and even retailers like Dollar General. Unfortunately, one very important source that is lacking in PayPal integration is Google Play. Thankfully, Google is finally doing something to change this.
Taking to their developer’s blog, Google has revealed it is bringing PayPal support to Google Play in 12 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, the US, and the UK. These regions will find PayPal as an option within Google Wallet, and all they’ll need to do is enter their login credentials to utilize it.
In addition to Paypal support in twelve countries, Google is also rolling out carrier billing support to seven more countries such as Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan — bringing the total number of countries that support carrier billing to 24.
That’s not all Google is doing to expand the reach of Google Play purchases, while making them as accessible to folks as possible. Google also is rolling out Play gift card support to Japan, Germany and 11 other countries and is even adding Google Play premium app support to 13 new countries with Indonesia,Malaysia and Turkey among the list.
Google doesn’t specify exactly when these changes will take affect, though we imagine the changes will pretty much start rolling out immediately.
