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

PayPal enable transactions in game/app - Farmville will never be the same

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.
