I didn't think it was a very wise idea for Paypal to try and expand into retail stores when they are only a payment intermediary who relies on Visa and Mastercard. What's the purpose of using Paypal in a store anyway when anyone with a Paypal account already has a credit or debit card?
Not to mention, eBay is taking a beating from Google search. There's no love loss there. I knew te traffic situation was getting bad when last month eBay affiliate program announced affiliates could now use links from Twitter, Facebook and other social media.
It is only fitting for Paypal to now pay fees to Master Card, Visa, American Express etc. Anyone who has or had a ebay account over the years is now relishing this news....... What comes around goes around!
