PayPal integration for Samsung Pay rolling out in the US one year after announcement
Samsung and PayPal announced last year a partnership that will provide PayPal users in the United States with the option to make payments via Samsung Pay. Unfortunately, neither company said anything about when exactly PayPal integration will be available for Samsung Pay.

Well, it looks like Samsung needed almost a year to make the option available for users of its mobile payment service. PayPal support in Samsung Pay is not yet live for all users in the United States, but some notice that the option suddenly appeared on their phones.

Speaking of phones, the Galaxy Note 8 seems to be the first smartphone to offer PayPal support in Samsung Pay, but the feature should be rolled out to other Galaxy handsets soon.

If you have a PayPal account and use Samsung Pay, you should soon be able to use your PayPal wallet and balance anywhere Samsung's mobile payment service is accepted in the United States.

So, this can hit a credit card I have in PayPal? Haven't been able to use Samsung Pay or Android Pay because my primary card isn't supported by either. This would be great.

Sounds like an extra layer of security between my card and the vendor - go through Samsung Pay and Paypal.
