Yahoo Inc. said late Tuesday that it's introducing a new feature in cooperation with Yahoo partner eBay Inc. Yahoo Chief Executive Officer Terry Semel, in a conference call with financial analysts Tuesday, described the new features as one that involves eBay's PayPal online payments feature, and "provides merchants and advertisers a more streamlined process" for online payments. As an extension of the strategic relationship between Yahoo! and eBay, the two companies are partnering to improve the online shopping experience for consumers. Starting April 17, Yahoo's sponsored search results will feature a blue shopping cart icon linking to merchants that accept PayPal Express Checkout.
It would be in Pay Pal's interest now to become regulated like a bank. Too many horror stories about accounts being locked down. Merchants know this and do not trust them. Especially with very large amounts of money. If pay pal was regulated, then we would consider them. Since they are not we would never trust them with any of our sites.
