The new service enables purchases from directly within apps through PayPal without the need for the user to input new information or leave to a secondary app. The real benefit is allowing mobile developers to better monetize their app content by connecting it directly with the most-used online payment system. Users can also rest assured that their personal info will not be stored directly in the app or on the developer’s servers.

Any developers who want to get in on the Mobile Payments Library can head over to to download it. This is definitely a great way to remove the headache and fuss from in-app purchases or donations, and that makes it a win-win for both developers and users alike. User experience is better, developers have a chance to earn more money, more money goes into developing better apps, and the beautiful cycle continues.
