by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 28, 2012
Google wants to differentiate itself by going beyond payments, which is exactly why the search and mobile giant wants users to eventually leave their wallets at home. In the future, our Android devices (or smartphones from other platforms) will be the central point of all our payments, transactions and identification.

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 22, 2012

Paypal App Update Brings Check Scanning

by: Aerol BibatMay 23, 2011

Good news for Android users hoping to maximize their time. One of the biggest modern-day time consumers is that of waiting in line at a bank to cash a check. I mean, it’s a piece of paper and you don’t even get the cash immediately! Well, Paypal’s got the solution for that.

PayPal recently released an update to its Android mobile app that add this pretty nifty feature: people can just take a picture of their check with an Android 2.1 or better phone then automatically have the cash put into their PayPal account. The PayPal app upgrade, which puts the app at version 2.8, also allows the software to be stored on a handset’s memory card, a nice little [...]

I guess everyone can then bump phones with the card-holder, right?

The PayPal application is free [...]

PayPal coming to the Android Market

Paypal with Android Market

Nothing really much to say about this one. Paypal is going to be offered as an alternative payment option to Google Checkout via the Android market. Personally, I am not a big fan of PayPal and prefer Google Checkout if I had to pick between the two. However, Google Checkout is not as omnipresent as the established payment gateways of PayPal, and also it is not available in some countries where Android phones could be. As such, it is a reasonable addition to let in PayPal as a provider into the Android Market. I just hope that this does not stunt the growth of the Google Checkout industry (not because I particular love Google, [...]
