iTunes and Apple Music customers in the UK, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, and Mexico can now pay for their purchases using PayPal.
The new payment feature, which is due to roll out in the United States in the coming months, allows users to pay for App Store, Apple Music, iTunes and iBooks purchases across iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices using their PayPal account.
The move provides a “secure and versatile payment method to meet the growing demand for digital entertainment,” according to a press statement released by PayPal.
To pay with PayPal, just select the PayPal option from the payment window when making any purchase through the App Store, iTunes, iBooks, or Apple Music. As soon as PayPal has been accepted, any further purchases will be charged through PayPal.
