One of the biggest time consuming aspects of online purchases through PayPal is the need to be redirected to the official PayPal site to complete the authorization process, and is something loathed by many. Today PayPal announced that it has rolled out a new "in-context" checkout system that negates the need to be redirected to the PayPal website.

The new system is being rolled out to both online platforms such as desktops and laptops as well as mobile devices, and is expected to make checking out using your PayPal account much simpler as all of the redirects are now gone. This new system should allow users who were once frightened off by the redirects to now use the service with confidence and ease.
