PayPal app for Nokia Symbian smartphones now available

PayPal has (very) quietly released an application for Nokia Symbian smartphones, which is now available to download from Nokia's Ovi Store. It only seems to be downloadable if you're in the U.S. or U.K. at the moment, but support for more countries is probably on its way -- after all, the Ovi Store is perhaps the most global of all smartphone app stores. The PayPal app for Symbian is free,...

Dwolla, the low-fee PayPal alternative, now for Windows Phone 7

A little while back, we told you about Dwolla -- a new payment service with its sights set on challenging PayPal. Dwolla's angle? A flat rate per transaction of $0.25 and no other fees of any kind. It's also integrated with Twitter and Facebook, which makes it easy to send money to (or receive from) the people you're interacting with most online. Now, Dwolla is expanding its mobile offerings...

Google considering NFC mobile payment system

Google may jump into the mobile payment arena with a service that would let you check out at brick-and-mortar stores by waving your phone at the register, according to a report from Businessweek. The service could launch in 2011, and it would use near-field communication (NFC) technology to let customers pay by waving their phones up to 4 inches away from a checkout station. Google chief Eric...

Flattr micropayment app arrives in the Android Market

Flattr offers a handy way to support the people, places, and things you enjoy without having to pull out your wallet. It's a very slick micropayment service, which lets users tip people they normally couldn't -- such as independent bloggers or digital artists whose work they enjoy online. But with the introduction of their new Android app, users can now easily donate via Flattr in the real world....

PayPal to launch a new, social, group-buying tool called Shoptimist

With the a groan-worthy name, and equally tired slogan -- "Positively awesome shopping!" -- PayPal looks set to launch a new service called Shoptimist. Details are thin, but it looks like Shoptimist will be a Groupon with emphasis on real-world, physical products. Fellow shoppers will band together to get cheaper deals from suppliers -- and the more people that join in, the better the deal....

PayPal rushes to fix a critical security flaw in its latest iPhone app

PayPal has uncovered a critical security flaw in the latest version of its iPhone application, that it released last week. This flaw allows a hacker to access users' accounts, and their account passwords -- and stems from the fact that the app doesn't check the authenticity of the digital certificate for PayPal's website while communicating with it. For someone to be able to access your data,...

PayPal for iPhone gets push notifications and local search

PayPal has launched version 3 of its iPhone application. The most important changes in it are support for push notifications and a search engine for local merchants. You can set up push notifications to happen whenever you send or receive money, purchase something through PayPal, or receive a request for money. Push notifications will not work on jailbroken devices or if your iPod touch is in...

Android Market to begin accepting PayPal payments on October 26?

Google's recent payment expansion was good news for developers and users alike, but there's even better news today. According to The Street, the deal with eBay to integrate PayPal payments is all but done and will be announced at PayPal's developer conference on October 26th. Enabling PayPal payments for Android Market app purchases is huge, and it will no doubt help attract and encourage more...

PayPal rushes in to save Android Market

In news that plays like heavenly, August music upon the ears of disenfranchised Android users throughout the world, a PayPal checkout option may soon appear on the Android Market. It seems Bloomberg is running with an anonymous tip, and the story goes on to say that the deal is by no means confirmed -- but it sure would make a lot of sense if it's true! Currently you can only buy Android Market...

Flattr is a groundbreaking micropayment service

Micropayments are the Holy Grail of online exchange. Being able to pay for the content you like, even if it's a small sum, makes a huge difference for both the viewer and the creator. There are numerous implementations of micropayment systems. Most people use PayPal; personally, I dislike it. They have something against my perfectly valid credit card, so I can never open an account; without an...

tinypay.me is an easy way to sell items online

Tinypay.me is a very web2.0 service, which sets you up with a PayPal-driven webpage that you can use to sell just about anything, super-fast. By "super-fast" I mean that you can be up and running in about two minutes. The screenshot you see above is what you get once you decide to purchase an item. When you offer an item for sale, you can set the price, the quantity, upload pictures and...

DLS @ SXSW - PayPal

PayPal had a nice booth at SXSW and was there to promote their API and developer platform, which now allows developers (hint: mobile developers, prayers answered) to enable PayPal's e-commerce solution within their apps. They were also there promoting their new iPhone app, which allows you to manage your PayPal account and send money to merchants or friends. Here's my chat with Francesco...

Delete Your Account helps you delete accounts from online services

Deleting your account from a social networking site can be as hard as canceling a gym membership or convincing a telemarketer that you're not interested in their product. Social networking sites and other online services don't want you to delete your account. There's value for them in being able to quote huge and growing user numbers, regardless of whether those users are happy to be there (though...

Finally, beyond the sale of virtual gifts like hugs and angel wings, Facebook has an app that allows you to open an ecommerce storefront via Payvment. Introduced in November 2009, Payvment uses a PayPal shopping cart for its app to work with Facebook Pages. In addition to its Facebook app, Payvment has a shopping cart web service which allows you to add a shopping cart to any website by...
