PayPal is teaming up with both Chase and Citi to make it easier than ever to spend your money, the online payment service announced Thursday.

PayPal already worked with JPMorgan Chase, the international financial institution, to an extent. Now, the companies have agreed to expand their partnership. 

You'll be able to use Chase cards to make purchases in brick and mortar stores directly from your PayPal account. Alternatively, you can use Chase's mobile payment service, called Chase Pay, at online retailers that accept PayPal.

PayPal recently became integrated in both Android Pay and Samsung Pay, both widely used mobile payment systems. While not available through Apple Pay, PayPal is an option to pay for purchases in iTunes, the App Store and Apple Music.

Both Chase and Citi customers will be able to use credit card rewards points to make purchases online via PayPal. Both are expected to roll out in 2018.

Correction, 3.15 p.m. ET: A previous version of this story said Apple Pay was integrated with PayPal. This is not the case.
