PayPal’s VP of platform, mobile and new ventures, Osama Bedier, is dishing on some good news for Android developers. PayPal’s Mobile Payments Library is now available for Android.
As the business of mobile commerce continues to boom with no signs of retreat, the expansion of PayPal’s Mobile Payments Library comes as no surprise. With greater demand, PayPal naturally wants to provide as many vendors as possible with the ability to add checkout functionality for donations, personal payments, and physical goods and services sold through apps on the Android phone without having to worry about keeping customers’ personal financial information secure.
We recently announced the open beta of our Mobile Payments Library for the iPhone and the developer community is already putting it to good use.
In addition to the newfound Android territory for PayPal, the digital commerce solutions provider also rolled out the PayPal X Toolkit for Google App Engine (GAE). What is it? According to PayPal, it’s a platform for developing and running Web applications and services on Google Cloud. Developers can then “easily and securely” incorporate payments in their applications and services built on GAE platform.
