Payments News

Category : Technology/paymentsNews.txt

Here's another interesting site that made a reference to ours : Scott Loftesness, and from which I've found Payments News, a survey of developments in the field of electronic payments. It's so interesting to find something just when you need it. I've been wondering why we couldn't just use PayPal to accept normal credit card payments, instead of having to sign up with WorldPay or Planet Payment or stuff like that.

I've learnt from this PayPal page that this is now possible to receive credit card payments from people who may not want to create a PayPal account (that wasn't possible before).

And I've learnt from this link on Payments News that there are further interesting developments at PayPal.

I've often wondered what's the point of doing all this writing. This is probably the answer, that I get to learn at the same time. That's the reward for taking part.
