PayPal launches mobile payments app for Pebble smartwatch

Wednesday 19 November 2014 00:06 CET | News

PayPal’s mobile payments app is now available for the Pebble smartwatch, online media outlet reports.

According to the source, Pebble users are now able to check in to stores via the PayPal app and pay with an auto-generated payment code wherever PayPal is already accepted (no phone necessary).

Users can pay one of two ways, either via the payment code mentioned above or, for certain retailers, by checking into a store on the PayPal app. Once checked in, PayPal’s app will automatically communicate with a merchant’s point-of-sale. In addition to making payments, Pebble users will also be able to receive notifications from the app.

PayPal is increasingly pushing its platform to get access to the mobile payments market. In addition to Pebble, the PayPal app is also available for the latest Android Wear devices as well as Samsung’s Gear 2, Gear S and Gear Fit.

The announcement comes shortly after PayPal parent company eBay revealed that its new smart dressing room for Rebecca Minkoff will exclusively provide PayPal as its form of mobile payment.
