Since Apple is totally against the help of PayPal, the founders of the payment system have made up a decision that Samsung is also a great source of income. And so, as the result, joint technological projects of PayPal and Samsung have been designed. The owners of some Samsung devices in the nearest time will have a chance to test them. One of such devices is Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches, which are going to support the PayPal application, which is going to be launched in April 2014.
With the help of such a "smart" gadget, basic manipulations will be possible: transferring money to friends, paying for the goods and services, pay coupons etc. Nevertheless, in order to make your Samsung Gear 2 working as the payment tool for you, it needs to be linked with the smartphone (the client authorization is processed in such a way) as well as learning the OC Tizen, used for the watches to work properly.
Another smart device, where Paypal has a finger in a pie is Galaxy S5, presented during the Barcelona conference. In that aspect everything looks perfect here: NFC chip, biometric authentication, plus instant PayPal payments in every spot, which has partnership relationships with the payment processor. The most attractive feature of the new Samsung device is obviously owner authentication on fingerprints (scanner is built in the "Home" button). Thanks to this feature, actively used by Apple as well, anywhere where PayPal payment is possible, the owner may block the screen, pay for the goods and register in any shop. Who knows, maybe Apple will change its mind on cooperation with PayPal? Still as of now, the cooperation with Samsung is potentially very profitable.
