In a much-anticipated move, PayPal has unveiled seamless Apple Pay support for its credit and debit cards. This strategic leap, initially disclosed last year, marks a pivotal moment in PayPal’s drive to integrate with Apple Pay, encompassing extensive compatibility for Apple Pay in online transactions and the revolutionary Tap to Pay feature on iPhone.
Today’s transformation empowers PayPal users wielding PayPal-branded credit or debit cards to effortlessly integrate them into the Apple Wallet app. This integration, long overdue, brings PayPal in line with the majority of banks and card issuers who’ve been in harmony with Apple Wallet and Apple Pay for an extended period.
For PayPal aficionados seeking to make the transition, a quick visit to the PayPal app on their iPhone unveils a prominent banner on the app’s homepage enticingly proclaiming: “Pay with your iPhone.” A simple tap seamlessly launches the Apple Wallet app, allowing for the swift addition of PayPal credit or debit cards.
Should the “Add to Apple Wallet” option elude sight in the PayPal app, users can alternatively venture directly into the Apple Wallet app. Here, a quick tap on the “+” icon, nestled in the upper-right corner, initiates the process of card integration.

In an exciting parallel development, Venmo, under PayPal’s ownership umbrella, is poised to embrace Apple Pay compatibility for its signature debit and credit cards. While confirmation regarding its immediate availability alongside this week’s launch for PayPal users remains pending, the prospect undoubtedly adds another layer of anticipation to this integration.
