PayPal gives users In-Site, In-App purchasing ability

Impulse buyers watch out - PayPal have just enabled in-app, in-site buys - allowing anyone to purchase something, anywhere.

For example - if you're in a game or on a webpage - you'll no longer need to leave whatever you're doing to use PayPal to fund your task. Instead - you'll use a new tool PayPal has introduced, you just have to click a single link.

Clicking the link will trigger a PayPal pop-up, which you'll obviously have to approve of.

While it makes it easier for people - it also introduces another level of simplicity to the micro-transaction world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
