Dell said on Monday that its online store now accepts PayPal as a form of payment. The company said it was interested in giving customers more choice in how to complete their transactions, and tech-savvy users of the site are ideal prospective customers. PayPal has approximately 86.6 million accounts, and in the third quarter processed more than $6.7 billion in transactions between its users.
Makes sense. With Ebay’s recent acquisition of Verisign’s payment gateway business, we’ll certainly be seeing more of this sort of thing.
