Paypal To Give Developers Access to API and Code
While there are already a lot of app stores out there, Paypal wants to distinguish itself from the rest by becoming an "open platform for payments that will get embedded into every other platform."
VP of Paypal's Platforms and Product Development, Osama Bedier, envisions developers creating applications that will enable users to pay for non-internet consumer goods and services. As Bedier put it, "I want developers to think of PayPal first whenever they hear the word 'payment' and I want to know what it will take to get there. We're willing to do it. We're willing to innovate and experiment on their behalf and hear their feedback."
