You could win $25,000 for your Android App

Use PayPal to integrate secure payments into your Android app and you could win $25,000, or $15,000, or $10,000. In fact, there are no losers in this contest. There are people that don’t win money, but really, what’s the worst thing that can happen? You end up with payments in your Android app?


  • Grand Prize is $25,000
  • 2nd prize is $15,000, not too shabby
  • And 3rd prize is $10,000, which is not to be sneezed at

In addition to the cold hard PayPal account deposit, the top 3 applications will receive marketing and PR support from PayPal to help build awareness of their application.


We’re looking for something new, something surprising, something with business potential, something that integrates PayPal payments.
The winning application will make us say, “Wow!”

  • Also accepted:
    • “Cool!”
    • “Awesome!”
    • “I’m totally downloading this”
    • or “Check this out”

In addition to its wow-ness, your final submission needs to include:

  • Idea name
  • Idea description
  • 2 minute video
  • link to the app

Add PayPal payments to your Android application
