Pay checks into PayPal with your iPhone
TechCrunch reports that PayPal are to release a new version of their iPhone app, which will allow merchants to photograph the front and back of a check with their phone’s camera, and have it automatically added to their PayPal balance.
Before the spelling police get on to me, I do mean “check” – there’s no hint that this will be available beyond the US at the moment.
Some US banks already do this, but it’s a new one for PayPal and one I’d have dearly loved when I had to trudge to the bank daily with my handful of eBay cheques. Ain’t technology marvellous?
