PayPal's partnership follows a similar deal with MasterCard's larger rival Visa Inc in July as the company looks to expand its payments network.

•    The two companies have an existing partnership for co-branded consumer credit cards in the United States and Puerto Rico.
•    PayPal, spun off from e-commerce company eBay Inc last year, has focused on aggressive growth.
•    The company's revenue in the second quarter rose more than 15 percent to $2.65 billion from a year earlier and the volume of payments it processes jumped 28 percent to $86.21 billion.
