This latest announcement follows the expanded Canadian availability of Samsung Pay, with RBC joining existing Samsung Pay partners including CIBC, American Express Canada, ATB Financial, Interac Debit, Mastercard, Scotiabank and Visa Canada.

An update, which is rolling out through the Google Play Store right now, is required in order for you to see the new feature. In the event you're still waiting, it's worth keeping an eye out for any Samsung Pay app updates.

Samsung Pay users can finally complete transactions on their phone with their PayPal balance, almost a year after the feature was first announced.

Earlier this month, we reported that some Samsung users noticed they can use PayPal as a payment option wherever Samsung Pay is accepted.

The next few steps require you to sign into your PayPal account and authorize Samsung Pay to access your PayPal account. PayPal users were allowed to use PayPal as their payment of choice in the Samsung Pay wallet starting immediately if not soon. The actual process takes just a couple of seconds. You'll also need to select a funding source from which money will be pulled to top up your PayPal account if you're running low.
