More micro than this, actually
If you’ve paid any attention to micropayments, the closest we’ve ever really gotten has been the various MP3 stores from iTunes, , and a like. And, let’s face it, 99 cents isn’t quite micro. PayPal is thinking, then, about allowing minuscule payments like 49 cents and even a few pennies.
This isn’t amazing news, but it should be an interesting way to grab a quick revenue stream from DLC and electronic gifting. This could also be a way to sell content online, although once you add a pay wall I could actually see mirrored websites pirating content behind the wall. It’s a mad, mad world.
