Uber began accepting PayPal as payment in late 2013 , enabling people without a credit card to use the service.

Uber was the first company to fully integrate PayPal's mobile SDK into its platform so that users didn't have to repeatedly log into PayPal every time they took an Uber ride.

Since launching in Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, the UK, and the US, PayPal has continued to expand its Uber partnership to different countries . Now, it's Uber 's primary payment partner in both the US and Australia.

Linking your PayPal to your Uber is easily achieved through Uber 's "Payment" tab.
