Paypal introduces micropayments. TFA. Article.
The usual paypal deal is 2-3% plus about 30 cents.
The new micropayment set up is five cents plus 5%. So if you charged $0.10 you'd get 0.04, $0.60 you'd get $0.52, and so forth. Paypal, at 70 million users, is the biggest online payment system (possibly amazon?) Www.e-gold.com is much smaller.
Micropayments have long been proposed as a commerce model for the web, ranging from a spam solution to a revenue source for blogs and online magazines. Are there other working systems cheaper than paypal? What are your successes or failures with micropayments? Will paypal's new arrangment help any?
