Vodafone and PayPal have agreed to allow UK customers to make contactless mobile wallet payments in shops, restaurants and on transport services with their Android smartphones, funded from their PayPal accounts.
Customers can link their PayPal account to Vodafone Pay to purchase goods and services at more than
400,000 places across the UK that accept contactless payments. Vodafone Pay customers will also be able to use the service to pay to travel across the Transport for London (TfL) network as well as on National Rail services in and around London that accept Contactless and Oyster.
“Our customers told us that being able to use PayPal when making mobile payments was important to them so we’re delighted to now offer this on Vodafone Pay,” comments Kate Wright, Head of Consumer Services, Vodafone UK .
“The service also works with any Visa and MasterCard credit or debit card offering customers greater choice than any other mobile payment service.”
Under the agreement with PayPal, anyone who doesn’t have a PayPal account will be able to sign up for one directly from within Vodafone Pay. Vodafone Pay is part of the Vodafone Wallet app, where users can add and keep electronic copies of their store loyalty cards, coupons and vouchers, which can be redeemed at point of sale.
