Starting today in Canada and Mexico, and rolling out in other countries including the US soon after, PayPal customers will be able to pay for App Store, Apple Music, iTunes and iBooks purchases across iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices using their PayPal account. This provides a secure and versatile payment method to meet the growing demand for digital entertainment. PayPal’s availability across Apple’s services further expands our vision of providing customers a variety of ways to easily make mobile purchases, such as asking Siri to make a payment using the PayPal app.
You can now choose to setup billing on your account with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, or Paypal.
Once you've setup PayPal, all your future purchases will be automatically charged to your PayPal account. This includes purchases of apps, music, movies, TV shows, and books, as well as Apple Music subscriptions and iCloud storage.
To select PayPal for billing, open your account settings in iTunes and 'Edit' your Payment Type or just click here.
Shares of PayPal reached an all time high today following news of the deal.
