There are a number of payment methods Google Play allows, including credit and debit card transactions, as well as billing to mobile carriers. However, PayPal has never been an option. This has irked a number of Android fans, especially those living outside the United States without access to Visa or Mastercards. In Germany, for example, most banks give out EC cards, which are not valid for use with Google Play. Many have wondered when Google would finally allow direct bank transfers.
There are even error codes which include the name PayPal, including: PAYPAL_INSTRUMENT_ERROR" next to messages like "GIFT_CARD_ALREADY_REDEEMED" and "INVALID_CREDIT_CARD".
While we can't be entirely certain that PayPal is coming to Google Wallet anytime soon, this is certainly promising.
Would you appreciate it if Google Wallet allowed purchases to be made via PayPal?
