How to Pay for Gas with PayPal

Using a mobile wallet is how you pay for gas with PayPal. A mobile wallet is a smartphone app that can be linked to various payment methods and used at checkout terminals equipped with NFC (Near Field Communication). You can add a credit card, debit card, and sometimes even a PayPal account to your mobile wallet.

Not many gas stations accept the PayPal app. However, you can also link your PayPal account to other, more commonly accepted mobile wallets for use in gas stations and other retail stores that accept them. Learn more about mobile wallets and how they work in the following section.

At stores where mobile wallets are accepted, instead of swiping a card, you can simply tap your phone against the terminal, and your NFC-enabled mobile wallet is automatically detected and charged.

The major mobile wallet apps are:

Apple Pay

  • Compatible with: iPhone and Apple Watch. Most iOS devices have built-in Apple Pay functionality.
  • Accepts PayPal as a funding source? No
  • Learn how to set up Apple Pay.

Google Pay

Note: In January 2018, Android Pay and Google Wallet were combined into Google Pay.
