iTunes has added PayPal.
Starting Wednesday, PayPal is a payment option for iTunes customers in 12 countries: the US, UK, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain, the US, UK, according to a PayPal blog post.
The advantage of using PayPal is that you don't have to give your credit card or debit card details to every online shop you visit. Instead, you simply connect with PayPal, which stores your payment details and automatically makes the payment from your online wallet or straight from your bank. Once it's set as your default payment, you can make purchases on Apple devices using PayPal's One Touch quick verification system, and even ask Siri to make a purchase.
