PayPal’s iPhone and iPad application was updated on the App Store this morning with support for iOS 10’s SiriKit integration for mobile payments, allowing you to send and request money in 30 countries around the world using just your voice.
With a simple voice command like “Send $20 to Dad using PayPal” or “Request $20 from John with PayPal”, Siri connects with the PayPal service and pulls up a custom sheet with details of your transaction before you authorize it.
Pangu was recently subjected to trust issues after a thread made it to Reddit claiming that some users had unauthorized charges from Beijing on their PayPal account after jailbreaking, others had their Facebook account show login attempts from various Asian countries, but mostly from China.
Despite all of the confusion, Pangu has made an official statement, and we have the scoop.
PayPal is dropping support for its mobile apps on Windows, BlackBerry and Kindle Fire devices, the online payments firm announced in a blog post. Existing users will be required to upgrade to the latest version of the mobile PayPal app for iOS and Android, which in February received its long-overdue makeover. Starting on June 3 through June 30, those on older versions of the PayPal mobile app must upgrade to the latest version, 6.0.
If you’re done using PayPal as your go-to online payments solution, why not close your account? With Apple Pay hitting new countries and points of sale on a regular basis, more and more people can choose to pay for their purchases with Apple Pay.
Aside from Apple Pay, a number of other payment solutions are available, such as Square. PayPal accounts are usually closed for a variety of other reasons as well.
For instance, if you’re moving abroad or want to change your street address to another country, you’ll need to close your existing account and open a new one in your new country of residence. In this step-by-step tutorial, we’ll take you through the process of closing your PayPal account.
The PayPal app for iOS, which has been long over-due for an update, has finally received its much-needed update on Thursday that adds official support for the retina HD displays of Apple’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch handsets.
The app, which is still a free download from the App Store, has been completely redesigned with a slew of changes to make using the app not only feel better, but look better.
Silicon Valley giants Apple, Amazon, Google, PayPal and Intuit have formed a coalition to promote the benefits of financial technologies in order to help the U.S. government better understand these technologies and ensure greater innovation in financial services, Re/code reported Tuesday.
The initiative is called the Financial Innovation Now and aimed at accelerating the pace of change in financial services, according to the official website.
Saurik has “flipped the switch” in Cydia to allow purchases for device and OS-compatible jailbreak apps and tweaks for iOS 9. That means that any tweak that has been properly updated for iOS 9 can now be enabled for sale by Cydia developers.
While this is a definite first step to being able to have a normal Cydia experience with the iOS 9 jailbreak, developers will still have to update packages and enable their tweaks and apps for sale. In other words, you may find a handful of tweaks out there that can be properly purchased and downloaded, but it’s still going to take a while for developers to properly catch up.
Now that Amazon Payments is no longer an option for purchases in Cydia, users are forced to use PayPal, at least for the time being. Saurik has noted that he plans on offering an alternative to Cydia, but until that day comes, users are forced to use PayPal.
The problem with PayPal, is that you cannot make a payment via Cydia if you have 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) enabled on your PayPal account. You’ll simply receive an error message stating that you need to add your security key to the end of the password in order to login. This, unfortunately, doesn’t work, leaving users who haven’t set up the initial auth with PayPal unable to purchase Cydia tweaks.
This issue is due to the mobile PayPal interface presented while inside Cydia. If you can bring your authorization outside of Cydia and into mobile safari, you can invoke the desktop interface and login to PayPal that way. Thankfully, a new jailbreak tweak makes this easy.
If you’ve tried to make a purchase on Cydia lately, you may have noticed one big difference with the available payment options. Amazon is no longer available as a means to make payment, leaving only PayPal as an option.
For me, this is really unfortunate, because Amazon allowed you to authorize a set number of dollars in advance, making it easy to make multiple Cydia purchases over a period of months without necessitating a reauth. I’ve never been a fan of PayPal and its business practices, but I also hate how cumbersome it can be to simply log in to PayPal.
As of today, we’re down to a single option for Cydia purchases, but that could be changing soon.
