Google and PayPal have announced that over the next few weeks, they’ll enable the ability to integrate your PayPal account with Android Pay to pay for items much like you would with your credit or gift card. This will work wherever Android Pay is accepted and act just like another card in your wallet.

Millions of people already use their PayPal account to make online purchases, receive payments and send money to friends and family. Soon they can start using the same PayPal account to tap and pay with their phones in stores and speed through checkout in Android apps.

It’s unclear which other regions will receive the feature, but Google says PayPal and Android Pay integration will begin rolling out to all users in the U.S. over the coming weeks. You’ll then be able to simply link your account to the Android Pay app and start paying for goods.
