We partnered with merchants, helping them leverage the global opportunity and realize the “Make in India” vision.
Today, we are proud to announce that we are adding domestic payment capabilities to our portfolio in India. Indian consumers can now transact with PayPal with some of India’s marquee merchants including BookMyShow, Makemytrip, PVR and Yatra. . These merchants can now process both local and global payments for PayPal’s 218 customer accounts around the world through a single integration.
