PayPal Adds Mobile Support to Commerce Identity Login Technology
In 2011, PayPal debuted PayPal Access, a payments identity technology that allows you to carry your payments identity to various retailers on the web. It's essentially a cross between Amazon.com's payments platform and Facebook Connect. Yesterday, PayPal announced a new name for the product, Log In With PayPal, and added a number of new features, including mobile support. With Log In With PayPal, instead of signing up with a specific retailer's credentials on a site, you sign up with your PayPal account, which would include all of your financial, shipping and billing information, as well as your purchase history.
