Apple has updated its online store to start accepting PayPal as a payment method in both the United States and United Kingdom. PayPal was already an option for those who shopped through the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBookstore, but this is the first time the company has offered it through the Apple Online Store.

PayPal previously took a swipe at Apple over its cloud platform’s security issues, but tried to be friendly when it came to mobile payments—possibly because PayPal felt threatened by Apple’s jump into that space.

PayPal recently beat Apple to the punch in offering watch-based payments at physical stores by launching a Pebble application.
