PayPal Makes a Major Mobile Upgrade

PayPal Makes a Major Mobile UpgradeProving once again why its the ultimate giant among mobile and digital payment providers, PayPal is out with a new and improved mobile app for iOS and it’s fairly remarkable according to first impressions.

“Today we’re launching our completely reimagined PayPal app on iPhone and Android, so our customers can leave the raging headache at home and just get what they want, when they want it,” says Hill Ferguson, Vice President of Global Product at PayPal.

With the new design of the app, PayPal has made it easier than ever for customers to pay when they’re in-store and send money to friends.

“We have made it even easier to pay using your bank account in one store and your credit card at the next place,” Ferguson adds. “In this release, you can even open a line of credit in the app using Bill Me Later.”

We’ve also vastly improved the in-store shopping experience. The PayPal app has a new tab called ‘Shop’, which you can use to find shops or restaurants nearby that accept PayPal payments. You can then ‘check in’ and open a tab with just a swipe. You can change how you want to pay right on the “check in” screen, meaning you’ve really got access to your entire wallet in the app.

After you’ve paid, you’ll see a confirmation alert and our usual PayPal email receipt.
