Samsung Electronics Co. said Monday it has clinched a strategic partnership with US online payment service provider PayPal for an expansion of its mobile payment services.

PayPal says: "Coming soon, consumers in the USA will be able to use PayPal within Samsung Pay at millions of retailers".

US customers will receive the payment option now through an update, and Samsung hopes to spread the service to further geographic markets soon.

Samsung has forged a strategic partnership with players in 18 markets including the USA and Brazil over its mobile payment platform. Past year alone, PayPal processed $102 billion in mobile payment volume and two billion mobile payment transactions.

Coming soon, consumers in the US will be able to use PayPal within Samsung Pay at millions of retailers. It, however, does not support tap-and-pay using credit and debit cards like the main app. The deal also lets customers use their Discover account via PayPal for online and in-person purchases.

In addition, PayPal announced last week an expanded relationship with Apple that will soon make PayPal a payment option for App Store purchases. PayPal support will be rolled out to other markets later. At PayPal, we've seen - and helped enable - a major shift to mobile.

The partnership method is also key to Samsung's strategy with Samsung Pay.

This strategic partnership between Samsung and PayPal will mutually benefit both organisations' customers. "This partnership furthers our commitment to providing customers with a more convenient payment experience that is simple, secure and available nearly anywhere".
