PayPal Speaks Spanish

Two weeks ago, PayPal took on yet another frontier, as they launched their services in Spain. 250,000 Spanish users were already taking advantage of this practical payment method in English. Now they will be able to enjoy the service in their own language (, much like in the U.K., Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Italy and France.

PayPal will be offering customer support to their Spanish customers and in the very near future will provide a buyer protection program, which in other EU countries provides 400 euro coverage in case the buyer does not receive the product they have paid for.

The service will initially be used to support Ebay España transactions, although PayPal promises that they will open the service to other online operations.

With e-commerce spending up 20% since last year, this is a timely move.
