Microsoft has announced the integration of PayPal’s Pay Later option, as well as a Venmo payment option to the Microsoft Store.
The new Pay Later and Venmo payment options are already available on the U.S. Microsoft Store, and will be added to other regions like the U.K., Australia, France, Spain, and Italy.
Here’s a rundown on both new options:
- PayPal Pay Later: With PayPal Pay Later, eligible consumers will now be able to pay for their purchases evenly over the course of weeks or months in fixed amounts, providing flexibility in how to pay and helping customers to better manage their budget.
- Pay with Venmo: Venmo’s powerful social app will help improve the customer experience by enabling a quick and simple checkout process in the Microsoft Store and Microsoft Store on Xbox*. When consumers pay with Venmo, they’ll have the option to purchase subscriptions or split payments upon purchase.
“At Microsoft, our commitment to creating the best experience for customers is at the center of everything we do, whether it’s for entertainment or productivity,” said Ajith Thekadath, Vice President of Global Payments, Microsoft. “The addition of new PayPal payment method options delivers on this commitment and offers even more flexibility for customers with tools that work for them and their goals.”
