In the end, the time has come for you to pay for your WhatsApp subscription. You would like to take advantage of the opportunity to spend the few euros you have left on your PayPal account (which you now use more and more rarely) but you have not yet managed to understand how to do it. Don't worry: even if a little hidden, the option to pay for WhatsApp with PayPal is available to everyone and does not involve any additional cost compared to the standard payment by credit card. The service costs € 0,89 for one year, € 2,40 for 3 years and € 3,34 for 5 years.
I would say, therefore, not to waste more time and see immediately together how to pay for WhatsApp with PayPal. For the realization of the guide I used an Android smartphone but the steps to follow are similar on all the software platforms on which WhatsApp is available.
UPDATE: WhatsApp has gone free! From January 2016 it is no longer required to pay an annual fee to use the service and therefore the information contained in this post is to be considered obsolete.
