PayPal’s recent partnership

In August 2023, Coinbase announced its collaboration with PayPal in order to allow customers and users in Germany and the UK to purchase and withdraw cryptocurrencies in an easier and more efficient manner. Throughout this collaboration, clients gained access to a hassle-free method for buying cryptocurrencies while using their debit cards and bank accounts, which were linked to PayPal.

The two companies aimed to offer clients with a familiar and reliable transaction experience. 

Earlier in the same month, hardware wallet technology company Ledger announced its strategic deal with PayPal in order to provide customers with the capability to explore crypto in a simple, effective, and secure manner, through the use of the Ledger Live companion application. 

PayPal was set to join the Ledger Live’s `Buy` section as a new payment method, as well as a `Buy` provider. At the moment, the PayPal integration was only made available for customers from the US. The enterprises aimed to offer a secure and user-friendly platform for their clients who wanted to purchase crypto. By leveraging PayPal through Ledger Live, individuals in the US were given the possibility to directly buy BTC, ETH, BCH, and LTC by using their linked PayPal account.
