Samsung Pay support for PayPal was unveiled back in July of last year with promises that it would be ready "soon," but that clearly didn't happen -- you've had to use your regular payment cards in the months since. Whatever prompted the wait, it's ready. PayPal has started enabling support through Samsung's tap-to-pay feature, letting you draw from your Wallet's funds instead of a credit or debit card.

The PayPal feature should work wherever Samsung Pay does, and you'll earn reward points the same way as before. You'll still have to link a bank account or debit card for those times you need a refill, so this isn't quite going to avoid conventional cards. Nonetheless, it could easily come in handy if your PayPal funds are otherwise going to waste.
