In-app PayPal payments coming to Android

PayPal has just launched a mobile payments library for Google’s Android (version 1.5 or newer), which will allow developers to include in-app payments into their software.

With the new library from PayPal, developers will be able to receive payments easily (without needing to handle credit card info), while users will be able to make transactions without leaving the application.

However, the in-app PayPal payment method might be against the Android Market Content Policy for Developers, which states that “developers should only charge for applications and downloads from Android Market through the Market’s Payment Processor” – so devs who integrate the new library into their apps might see them rejected from Android Market.

You can download the mobile payments library for Android from PayPal’s Developer Network website. The library is also available for iPhone.
