WePay chills PayPal dev con

By Sue October 28, 2010 - 8:32 pm

A cunning stunt from PayPal competitor WePay at the the PayPal developer conference this week: they delivered a 600lb block of ice to the front of the conference centre, filled with frozen money and the message “PayPal freezes your accounts | unfreeze your“.

After being chased away by a security guard, the WePay crew finally smashed up their work of art and gave the money away.

Sporting the line “a better way to collect money” (better than whom? I think we now know…), WePay offers a number of features that PayPal lacks, including group accounts and the ability to split bills. Sadly, they’re not yet available outside the US.

Here’s the drop in front of the PayPal venue:
