US-born mobile payment techniques like PayPal Right here and Square have not had much traction in Europe, due in no small part to the continent’s constant reliance on chip-and-PIN credit cards over North America’s (gradually outbound) magnetic stripes. PayPal is getting around that technical barrier with the most direct approach feasible– changing the reader completely. PayPal Right here’s UK implementation swaps out the triangular US reader for a significantly bulkier Bluetooth peripheral that takes the newer payment method. Many others aspects will recognize to anybody who’s used Right here on an Android or iOS device in an additional nation, minus the required changes in currency. PayPal is partnering with a handful of UK businesses before launching Below on a wider scale in the summer season– not quickly sufficient for some, but it might save a few Brits from scrounging through their pocketbooks simply to get some ice cream.

PayPal Right here, despite all its focus on in-store transactions, hasn’t really been readily available to purchase in an US shop– that’s been the domain of the apparently common Square reader. eBay’s repayment wing has at last set up that retail beachhead with a package with AT&T. About 1,800 of the provider’s puts are now holding PayPal Here readers, and they’ll keep the service’s huge rival from monopolizing the spotlight at a time when a lot of aren’t also aware that there’s any sort of competitors. If you’re still negative, you could look at the AT&T move as a matter of ease: at least this way, all your account headaches will certainly arise from one spot.
On November 1st, PayPal will follow Sony, Microsoft, Netflix, and many others in banning course action suits by consumers.

Stopping classroom action suits is sometimes an abstract worry, but PayPal has a history of legal obstacles

Those late-night adverts for a steam-powered ab-crunching bagel toaster (just $ 400, plus $ 99 postage and packing!) will soon be much harder to resist, thanks to TiVo. The DVR maker has teamed up with PayPal to enable you to purchase goods with your remote control during the commercial. A global financial meltdown will probably ensue just as soon as the company can get compatible adverts developed, currently slated to begin airing during this year’s fall TV season.

Hot on the heels of the launch of its new Here mobile payment dongle in the U.S., PayPal is joining the ranks of companies looking to get a piece of the action in what will, this year, become the world’s largest smartphone market: China.
The company says it is “cautiously optimistic” that it will become the first non-Chinese company to get a license to process domestic electronic payments — both online and via mobile devices. This would be in addition to a business it already has in the country to process international payments.
According to a report in Bloomberg, eBay-owned PayPal’s SVP for Asia, Rupert Keeley, today said that the company would look to offering its new Here card-swiping dongle in China if it gets the license. The dongle, which would move PayPal into mobile wallet services where its platform could be used at points of sale, was officially unveiled yesterday and currently works with iPhone and Android handsets.
That gives Here a potentially good opening in China: IDC yesterday noted that China is due to overtake the U.S. as the world’s largest smartphone market.
And while the iPhone is seeing “off the charts” demand in the country, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the market is currently being dominated by sales of Android devices (including those running on forked versions of the OS). These sell for lower price points than the iPhone — currently under $ 200 and soon moving to be less than $ 50 per handset, according to IDC.
But it’s not just about point-of-sale opportunities, which is still a new area for PayPal. Most of its business today comes from straight e-commerce on the Internet and via apps. But here, too, the future seems increasingly mobile as far as China is concerned: research from OnDevice out this week found that some 38 percent of consumers in China are already accessing the Internet only via mobile devices.
The e-commerce market in China in 2011 was estimated to be worth $ 121 billion annually, according to Barclays Capital. At the moment, it is dominated by two local players: the Alipay offering from e-commerce and Internet giant Alibaba has a 47 percent share of the market and rival Tencent’s Tenpay has 21 percent, says Analysys International.

Google and its poached Paypal employees got sued for trade secret misappropriation yesterday, but we didn’t know the dirty details until now. A peek at PayPal’s complaint reveals there’s a bit more to the story. Apparently, Paypal and Google were in talks last year to use PayPal for payments in the Android Market. Osama Bedier was in charge of those negotiations for PayPal in October of 2010, when the deal was supposed to close, but was allegedly interviewing for a mobile payment position at Google at the same time (holy conflict of interest, Batman!). The complaint claims that Bedier initially rebuffed El Goog’s advances, told PayPal of the job offer and professed that he would stay, but jumped ship a month later (bringing some PayPal coworkers with him) after being recruited by Stephanie Tilenius and the almighty dollar. Once it hired Osama, Google put the brakes on the PayPal deal and created Google Wallet. Then Google, Bedier, and Tilenius got slapped with a lawsuit. A brief rundown of the legal claims awaits you after the break.

Sony has continued its assault against poor ol’ George â€œGeoHotâ€ Hotz, one of the main â€œfacesâ€ of the PS3 hacking scene. The company has won a courtroom battle that will enable it to have a peek at some of his PayPal records. This can mean only one thing: Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will be visiting those of you who donated to his cause.
Sony has alleged that northern California residents have donated money to the GeoHot cause, therefore courts there should have jurisdiction over the case.
This, in addition to consenting access to GeoHot’s tweets going all the wy back to 2009.
I would like to know what Sony plans on accomplishing with all of this sabre-rattling. The hack is out there, and provided you haven’t upgraded your PS3′s firmware the system is wide open. And let’s not forget that another hacker has already said that the only way for Sony to get him to stop is to kill him, which, if nothing else, implies a certain level of devotion to the cause.
Query: If I donated $ 10 to Geohot’s legal defense fund, does that make me liable for his actions, and do I have no right to keeping that donation private? It was, after all (if I made it), a perfectly legal transaction between two private citizens. Well, according to Sony and Federal Magistrate Spero (who just a short time ago approved Sony’s request for all IPs visiting the hacker’s site), I’m going to be on the record whether you like it or not.
A new request from Sony has been granted that is, well, not quite as heinous as the last one, but is still troubling and overreaching. They want his PayPal records for all of 2009, 2010, and January of 2011. Because that whole period is relevant to a hack he worked out less than three months ago, right?
Yes, apparently Sony needs records reaching back a full two years — and remember, all this is to determine whether George Hotz should be tried in his home state, where the alleged crimes occurred, or in San Francisco, near Sony’s US headquarters.
Again, the inability of this judge to form any kind of criticism of these ridiculous requests by Sony is alarming in the extreme. Here is a man who, on the flimsy pretext of a trumpery jurisdictional dispute, is handing over years’ worth of data that personally identifies thousands of people who have nothing to do with this case. It’s as if Sony lost a dollar at the beach, and has now asked the judge to authorize dredging the harbor. The EFF objected to the last order, and will surely object to this one, but the damage is essentially done unless PayPal and friends decline to provide this information, in solidarity with Hotz, and countersue Sony.
—I wouldn’t hold my breath.
Sony is completely out of touch here and can only damage its image further. The judge, a few years will show, has shown himself incapable of discharging his duty, and furthermore is failing the citizens he serves by not even attempting to mitigate a major corporation’s efforts to crush a 21-year-old kid who, let us remember, is presumed innocent. I apologize for editorializing here, but this really appears to me to be a serious breach of justice.
More info can of course be found at Geohot’s site, the case docket (frequently updated), or here on CrunchGear, where we take a serious interest in this kind of chicanery.
