Rumor alert!  I've received a tip from a very trustworthy source that Google will announce support for PayPal payments in the Android Market on Nov. 2.  It's no secret that PayPal and Google have been working on making it happen, and we honestly expected an announcement last week during PayPal's developer's forum, but it didn't materialize.

We take all rumors with a grain of salt (and you should, too!), but the details surrounding this one sure sound right, and I'm going with it.  There's not much more I can say, but be on the lookout for this news as well as some other announcements from developers and publishers on Nov. 2. Thanks to our anonymous friend!

  • in my best Jerry, boy i hope so!
  • i thought there was already a paypal app. hmmm
  • No this about being able to use your paypal to pay for apps on the Market.
  • Hope this is not a rumour, in my country (Panama), I dont have access to paid apps, and this puts Android OS (which I love, that's why I bought a Nexus 1) below Apple appstore.
    I bought my Android because I wanted a good alternative to iphone OS, but quality apps is as important as good hardware and OS, in my opinion.
    If Google wants Android OS to grow in the rest of the world (not only the U.S.A. Europe and some Asian countries), they have to open the market with paid apps, by the way they earn money using a similar model to apple appstore.
