Google Expands App Development, Adds PayPal Support to Google Play

22 May, 2014 By: Chris Tribbey

With sales of apps and games on Google Play up more than 300% in the past year, and with two-thirds of Google Play purchases now taking place outside of the United States, Google is adding PayPal support for Google Play to more than a dozen countries, including the United States, Germany and Canada.

“Our goal is to provide users with a frictionless payment experience, and this new integration is another example of how we work with partners from across the payments industry to deliver this to the user,” said Google Play product manager Ibrahim Elbouchikhi.

Google also announced it is allowing developers in 13 more countries  — including Indonesia, Malaysia and Turkey — to sell apps on Google Play, bringing the total to 45 countries that offer the option to local app developers.
