PayPal, the online-payment company owned by eBay Inc., said Friday that it plans to launch a new service this year designed to make it easier to pay for items using cell phones and other mobile devices.

... She (PayPal spokeswoman Amanda Pires) said the company is working on a modified version designed specifically for the scaled-down versions of Web sites that appear on tiny cell-phone displays.

... The company expects computer users to continue buying big-ticket items such as television sets and other pricey merchandise through their home computers.

"We think this is going to be more for merchants that offer impulse buys movie tickets, pizzas, DVDs," she said.
