PayPal: HP adds PayPal as payment option

img Paypal logo small You can tell that a new solution has become mainstream when key market players announce publicly that they will use it.

Yesterday worldwide number 1 computer manufacturer Hewlett-Packard has announced that it now is offering PayPal as a new payment option in their online stores. With the agreement, the HP Home & Home Office Store products and supplies will now be accessible to PayPal’s more than 122 million accounts.

Besides other options – HP also accepts credit card payments – with the new PayPal option customers can now pay for items using their credit cards, bank accounts and stored balances without having to share their financial information while shopping. With many small or mid-size web services using PayPal as their preferred way to receive payments – for example with money accrued through Google’s Adsense advertizing network – these now got another way to spend their balances with PayPal without transferring them back to their bank accounts. We hope that HP will extend this offer to other products as well.

PayPal that was acquired in 2002 by EBay for USD 1.5 billions is active in 103 countries around the world. With its service individual or businesses with an email address can send and receive payments online using a local bank account or transfer money to their PayPal account via credit card or otherwise.
