You Won’t Be Able to Use PayPal’s App on These Phones Anymore


If you still use a BlackBerry (BBRY), it’s going to get harder to use PayPal (PYPL) from your phone.

That’s because the payments service is shuttering its app for the smartphone, along with apps for the Windows Phone and Amazon’s (AMZN) Fire phone on June 30, according to a company blog post. After that date, PayPal’s flagship app will be available for just Android and iOS devices.

“It was a difficult decision to no longer support the PayPal app on these mobile platforms,” said Joanna Lambert, PayPal’s VP of consumer product, in a statement. “But we believe it’s the right thing to ensure we are investing our resources in creating the very best experiences for our customers.”

The payments company, however, said that users on phones that no longer support its apps can still use the service via its mobile website.


“We remain committed to partnering with mobile device providers, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers,” Lambert said.
