Apple führt PayPal als Bezahloption für iTunes, App Store und Apple Music ein

Apple-User konnten bislang mit Apple ID und Kreditkarte Einkäufe bei iTunes tätigen, Apps kaufen oder Filme downloaden. PayPal wurde bislang nicht unterstützt. Bis jetzt. Wie PayPal-COO Bill Ready bekannt gab, wird PayPal nun auch als Zahlmethode bei Apple-Services wie App Store, Apple Music und iTunes akzeptiert. Vorerst nur in Kanada und Mexiko, weitere Märkte inklusive der USA sollen in naher Zukunft aber dazu kommen. Auch PayPal-Bezahlungen über Siri sollen bald möglich werden.

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.

How it works: Making payments with PayPal
Paying with PayPal is simple. Customers with a new or existing Apple ID can select "PayPal" as their payment method from their account settings in the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes [and iBooks] from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, or on iTunes from their PC.

Once PayPal has been selected, all future purchases with the customer's Apple ID will be automatically charged to their PayPal account. This includes purchases of apps, music, movies, TV shows, and books, as well as Apple Music subscriptions and iCloud storage.

The new payment option, which brings PayPal's One Touch to Apple ID accounts, allows for simple purchasing from all Apple devices, including Apple TV and Apple Watch.
