Service NSW now accepts PayPal as a payment option, making online and mobile payment for NSW Government services faster and easier.

Starting with Roads and Maritime Services, PayPal will be progressively be available on all of the NSW Government agencies that accept payments via the Service NSW website and mobile app.

This partnership is the first wide-scale offering of PayPal for government payments in Australia and responds to the increasing customer demand for mobile digital services, giving NSW citizens more choice and flexibility in how they pay for government services. With 7.2 million customers in Australia, more than one-in-three NSW adults is a PayPal user.

Service NSW provides customers with access to more than 1,000 government transactions from around 40 different agencies. With PayPal, the public won’t need to enter their card number and expiry date, they can simply enter their PayPal username and password, simplifying payment and saving time when paying via mobile.

“Millions of NSW citizens already have PayPal accounts so it makes sense to offer this payment option for government transactions. Service NSW has become the one-stop shop for licences and household savings and this partnership will now offer customers a one click solution for payment,” said Victor Dominello, Minister for Finance, Services and Property.

“Customers are already giving the new platform the thumbs up – in less than a week PayPal currently represents 13 per cent of all digital payments which is about 9,000 transactions.”

“People in NSW can now use PayPal to pay their car rego and driver’s licence through Service NSW,” said Libby Roy, Managing Director, PayPal Australia.

“PayPal is delighted to be supporting Service NSW to make digital payments for state government services easier. You won’t have to fumble for your credit card or enter long strings of numbers. By paying with PayPal on smartphones, you’ll literally be able to pay via the Service NSW App with the touch of a finger.”
