For added convenience, all accounts are automatically integrated with the PayPal Wallet, which provides access to a suite of applications and tools that simplify checkout and include available special financing options for shoppers with participating merchants.
“The PayPal credit card program helps to drive sales for merchants and adds greater purchasing power and rewards for customers,” said Steve Allocca, Vice President and General Manager, PayPal Credit. “Synchrony has a deep understanding of the industry and shares our customer focus and commitment to payments innovation.”
