PayPal confirmed that Apple users can now add their PayPal and Venmo credit or debit cards to their Apple Wallet. This will allow customers to access their PayPal and Venmo cards using the convenience of Apple’s contactless payment system via iPhone or Apple Watch.

“The use of mobile wallets continues to increase in popularity as consumers gravitate toward safe, quick, and contactless card payment options,” PayPal announced in a press release. “A survey conducted by Morning Consult last year found that 42% of Americans have used mobile wallets. The option to add a PayPal or Venmo card to Apple Wallet offers an easy and secure way to make quick payments on-the-go or online.”

According to the company, customers can use Apple Pay and still receive cashback and rewards on certain purchases. The multinational financial technology giant also underscored the advantage of using Apple’s service due to its security made possible by Face ID, Touch ID, and passcode with a combination of one-time unique dynamic security codes.

For PayPal and Venmo customers, the company said to just do the following steps:

  • Users will first need to visit the Apple Wallet app.
  • Users will then select “add debit or credit card.”
  • Next, users can either scan their PayPal or Venmo credit or debit card or enter the card details manually.
  • Once a card is added, users can complete an in-store purchase by double-clicking the side button, authenticating with Face ID or Touch ID, and then holding their iPhone or Apple Watch near a reader. To make online or in-app purchases, simply proceed to check out, tap the Apple Pay button and follow the steps.

The news should benefit more Apple Wallet users, especially now that Apple continues to expand Apple Pay to more countries. In July, Apple made Apple Pay available in Morocco, and it was followed by Vietnam and Chile in August. Aside from that, the iPhone maker continues to make its Tap to Pay available to more markets. Recently, Apple started offering the feature to its customers in Brazil, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
