At long last, it looks like Amazon just might be coming around to letting its customers pay with PayPal. According to CNET, PayPal has confirmed it has been in talks with Amazon to potentially enable its users to purchase items and services from the shopping site using the online transaction service.
In an interview with Bloomberg, PayPal CEO Dan Schulman said, "We have been in conversations with Amazon." He explained, "We're closing in on 200 million users on our platform right now.
At that scale, it's hard for any retailer to think about not accepting PayPal." Amazon is also one of the last hold-outs from accepting the internet-based payment service.
PayPal separated from its parent eBay 18 months ago. It's now accepted by hundreds of sites and retailers including Walmart, Best Buy and Netflix.
