PayPal now lets you link loyalty cards to its iOS app

PayPal has updated its iOS app to let you link loyalty cards from a list of supported merchants (as first spotted by 9to5 Mac). This means you can now carry virtual versions around instead of having to stuff multiple cards into your wallet.

The update has not rolled out to PayPal’s Android app yet, but it appears to be only a matter of time.

It also brings it on par with Apple’s very own Passbook app, which helps to keep things like boarding passes, movie tickets and gift cards in one place after you scan them in.
