How to Pay for Gas with PayPal
Using a mobile wallet is how you pay for gas with PayPal. A mobile wallet is a smartphone app that can be linked to various payment methods and used at checkout terminals equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication).
You can also add a credit card, debit card, and sometimes even a PayPal account to your mobile wallet.
At stores where mobile wallets are accepted, instead of swiping a card, you can also simply tap your phone against the terminal. With this, your NFC-enabled mobile wallet is automatically detected and charged.
The major mobile wallet apps are:
Compatible with: iPhone and Apple Watch. Most iOS devices have built-in Apple Pay functionality.
Note: In January 2018, Android Pay and Google Wallet were combined into Google Pay.
Compatible with: Most Samsung devices, either as built-in functionality or a downloaded app with an over-the-air software update. However, this ensures compatibility. Download the software update from the Samsung website (for devices that do not have the Samsung Pay app pre-installed)
