At its developer conference yesterday, PayPal launched its mobile payment system called Mobile Express Checkout.
While making purchases via apps is rather easy and can be can be simply designed and developed into mobile applications already, PayPal’s solution will offer the ability for users to opt-in to the service and stay logged in between various mobile apps. PayPal feels that this solution offers a new level of ease of use.
Given the fact that Paypal plans to give Mobile Checkout Express merchants the ability to accept credit card payments in early 2011, those planning to have mobile applications developed for release at that time should keep PayPal’s new system in mind and mention it to their mobile application developer.
Whether you you are looking to develop an iPhone or iPad app or looking to tackle other systems such as developing for BlackBerry, with PayPal’s reach, security and reputation, you should certainly at least consider integrating this solution into your mobile application development plans.
