PayPal adds support for gift cards in online transactions
PayPal has updated its online payment service to accept prepaid gift cards. The change to the PayPal Checkout system will allow online retailers to accept payments from the prepaid cards for goods and services, reports TechCrunch. PayPal claims that only one in four people are able to register their address with a prepaid gift card supplier in order to complete a purchase, with the new update likely to help improve this figure over the holiday season.
