PayPal customers will now be able to pay for App Store, Apple Music, iTunes and iBooks purchases across iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices using their PayPal account.

Until now, Apple only allowed consumers to purchase any digital content with either a bank card or gift card credit. The addition of PayPal will make easier for users while buying things through Apple’s services, since now users only have to log into an account instead of filling out all of credit card information again.

The PayPal support will provides a secure and versatile payment method to meet the growing demand for digital entertainment.

Here is how to make payments with PayPal 

Customers with a new or existing Apple ID can select “PayPal” as their payment method from their account settings in the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes (and iBooks) from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, or on iTunes from their PC.

Users can also ask Siri to make purchases through the PayPal.

Once PayPal has been selected, all future purchases with the customer's Apple ID will be automatically charged to their PayPal account. This includes purchases of apps, music, movies, TV shows, and books, as well as Apple Music subscriptions and iCloud storage.

The new payment option, which brings PayPal’s One Touch to Apple ID accounts, allows for simple purchasing from all Apple devices, including Apple TV and Apple Watch.
