Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

PayPal Inc said yesterday it is distributing a plug-in for Microsoft Corp's FrontPage 2002 web development tool that allows users to add PayPal e-commerce functions to their sites using a wizard interface.

The company, soon to become a part of eBay Inc, has been targeting web merchants through a variety of channels as it aims to increase its user base and thus the amount of money that passes through its systems.

PayPal started targeting web developers with the release of a plug-in for Macromedia Inc's Dreamweaver application, a FrontPage competitor, in March. Another free download, PayPal executives said they hope to have it bundled with future versions of the application.

Adding PayPal to a site is usually pretty simple, requiring a few lines of HTML to achieve. The system allows buyers and sellers to send money to each other using their email addresses to transfer money between their PayPal accounts, while PayPal makes money off the interest accrued in dormant funds.
