Microsoft taps into PayPal for enhanced payment flexibility 


PayPal and Microsoft have confirmed the integration of PayPal’s Pay Later solution in the US, UK, Australia, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy.

Customers in the US will also have the option to pay with Venmo in the Microsoft Store, as the group continues to focus on expansion of payment. 

Kurt Campisano, SVP of Strategic Accounts at PayPal, commented on the move: “For over 16 years, PayPal checkout has been a trusted method for Microsoft Store customers to purchase products like Surface devices and Xbox consoles and accessories, as well as Microsoft 365’s product suite. 

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Microsoft to offer them access to our full suite of capabilities that will create a beautiful customer experience across the entire shopping journey.”

Venmo is currently available in the Microsoft Store on Xbox in the US, with the new integrations looking to focus on offering customers more flexible ways to pay and help increase customer loyalty.

“At Microsoft, our commitment to creating the best experience for customers is at the centre of everything we do, whether it’s for entertainment or productivity,” added Ajith Thekadath, Vice President of Global Payments at Microsoft. 

“The addition of new PayPal payment method options delivers on this commitment and offers even more flexibility for customers with tools that work for them and their goals.”
