Google Play starts accepting PayPal for digital goods, but not for physical ones

Well, here's a surprise: Mountain View now accepts PayPal payments for apps, games, books and other digital goods on Google Play. If you're not exactly fond of paying through credit cards cards or carriers, you can activate the option by clicking Add Paypal and typing in your log-in details. The option has a huge limitation, though: you can't exactly use it to buy devices and accessories. So, if you want to buy a new Android phone or a Nest thermostat, you need to bust out that plastic. That said, Play has also expanded carrier billing and gift card availability to more countries, and anyone waiting for either may want to check Google Support for the full lists.
