PayPal has announced that its PayPal Here app is now available on Android tablets in select markets, including the US, UK, Australia, Japan, and Hong Kong. The app is similar to the one already available on Android smartphones, allowing you to accept credit or debit cards and mobile payments with PayPal.

"We want you, the businesses we work with, to be able to accept payments wherever you are and on whatever device works best for your business", the company said, adding that the market research firm Gartner reported that 62 percent of tablets purchased in 2013 were Android.

PayPal Here is PayPal's dongle-based payment solution that allows businesses to accept payments using the company's card reader and app. Features include the ability to manage items so you can customize your inventory and products, monitor sales activity, set things like discounts, taxes and tips, and reading card swipes no matter what screen you are in so you can make a sale.

According to the Google Play app description, there are certain Android tablets that PayPal has verified to work with the PayPal Here card reader.

  • Asus Nexus 7″ 2013
  • Asus Nexus 10″
  • Asus Transformer Pad TF300T

If your tablet isn't listed, that doesn't mean it is not supported, it's just that the company isn't guaranteeing anything. The PayPal Here app for Android tablets is available for download on the Google Play store now.
