Uber has announced that it is now accepting PayPal to pay for rides in Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands and the US. Uber users can now add PayPal as a payment option in the Uber mobile app. [Update: See PayPal's blog post]
TechCrunch reports that "To add your PayPal account you simply enter in your email/password or phone number and pin, and you’ll be logged in." Users won't need to login to PayPal each time.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick told TechCrunch that "enabling PayPal was the simplest way to allow a universal payments method that is used across the globe by 140 million users."
PayPal CEO David Marcus told Bloomberg: "It’s important to be where disruption occurs. You want to partner with the companies creating an amazing consumer experience.”
