PayPal Enables Impulse Buys With In-Site and In-App Purchases

Illustration for article titled PayPal Enables Impulse Buys With In-Site and In-App Purchases

The time it takes to go from wanting something to signing into PayPal and buying it might be just enough for you to change your mind. Which is why PayPal just cut out that step, allowing in-app and in-site buys.

If you're in a game, or on a web page, you no longer have to leave to use PayPal to fund your purposes. Instead, using a new tool the company just introduced, you just have to click on the pertinent link. That will trigger a PayPal pop-up, through which you approve the transaction. All without ever having to leave Farmville.

So! If you're part of the instant gratification crowd, life just got a whole lot easier for you. And, possibly, a whole lot more expensive. [PayPal via Fast Company]

That's funny. I was just reading an e-mail from paypall.com. It told me to download an html file, open it, fill out info regarding my full name, SSN, DOB and credit card number, because my account was under "restricted use".

I don't have a Paypal.
