Hi app developers,

I thought you'd be interested in this:

"Support for PayPal as an additional payment option has landed today in
Ubuntu Pay, the service that handles electronic payment for commercial
apps in the Ubuntu Software Centre.

This new feature will enable Ubuntu users to comfortably and safely buy
commercial apps, ebooks and magazines from the Software Centre with
their PayPal account. PayPal will be an additional payment option along
with the already supported credit and debit card alternatives, “a
frequently-requested option by users who don’t have credit/debit cards
or who get charged conversion fees by their bank for non-local currency
transactions“, adds Stuart Metcalfe, Canonical ISD manager.

All in all, a much welcomed feature that will contribute  reinforcing
the virtuous circle of the Ubuntu apps ecosystem with an easier
purchasing process, more profits for app authors and increased
attractiveness of Ubuntu as a target platform for app developers.

Congratulations to the Canonical ISD team for this great addition to the
Software Centre!"
