PayPal’s One Touch payments features is now available in the UK and Canada after being expanded to the Web in April for US customers.

This means anyone can make payments using a single log in on any site that accepts PayPal.

One Touch allows you to authorize payments with one touch after entering your ID and password once per device, rather than once per app. When you make your next payment online using PayPal, it should automatically save your details to use One Touch confirmation.

Since the launch of One Touch last year, companies like Airbnb, Lyft, YPlan and Boxed have all adopted the feature and according to PayPal, it led to a noticeable increase in sales. For example, the payments company said YPlan reported a double digit increase in conversions since it began implementing OneTouch.
