Steam Summer Sale start date outed by PayPal: Prepare your wallets

Like death and taxes, Steam's annual sales have become a certainty of life. Steam is usually pretty secretive when it comes to the start and end dates for its sales, but as it has done for most Steam sales in recent memory, PayPal is here to bail us out. PayPal UK has announced the start date for 2017's Steam Summer sale, and it's coming up a lot faster than you may realize.

Send money from PayPal to your bank account almost instantly

Send money from PayPal to your bank account almost instantly

PayPal has always tried to make it easier to move money around without actually moving money around. But, despite those conveniences, there are still some processes that are either too involved, impossible, or simply take too long. For example, getting your own money from PayPal into your bank account can take a whole day, which is almost unreasonable when you think about it. Soon however, those in the US will be able to enjoy near instant gratification when they transfer money from PayPal to their bank accounts.

Apple Pay on the web official: aimed to take on Paypal

Apple Pay on the web official: aimed to take on Paypal

This morning Apple confirmed that they'd be releasing Apple Pay to the web. This system will work with stores across the web, allowing users to bypass systems like Paypal for handling their online cash. They began this proposition at WWDC 2016 with an absurd picture of a woman holding an iMac up to pay for a coffee at a coffee shop - which makes the most sense. Of course Apple Pay on the web will only work with Safari.

PayPal retires Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and Amazon apps

PayPal retires Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and Amazon apps

Microsoft's exit in the smartphone arena, or at least the hardware side of it, sends all the wrong signals to OEMs as well as app developers, whether Microsoft likes it or, most likely, not. As if by coincidence, PayPal has just announced that it will sunset the Windows Phone version of its app starting June 30. The good news for Windows Phone users is that they won't be alone in their misery, as BlackBerry is doing the same for BlackBerry and Amazon Fire owners.

PayPal will drop Purchase Protection for crowdfunding backers in June

One of the great things about PayPal is its Purchase Protection feature. This is what allows users to safely shop online and make payments to website or eBay users without the fear of getting ripped off. If someone tries to cut and run after taking the money, you can file a dispute with PayPal to get your money back. These days, however, it's failed crowdfunding projects that are more common than eBay fraudsters, and PayPal is withdrawing its protection from backing pledges.

It seems that Apple Pay is ready to spread its wings and fly high, all before the year ends and in time for the shopping insanity that accompanies the holiday season. Although the service is perhaps more popular, or unpopular, for its NFC-based payment system for in-store purchases, Apple Pay also offers convenient and secure shopping on mobile apps. According to sources, Apple will be bringing that convenience and security to purchases done on websites, inside browsers, as well. The catch, it will only be available on your iPhone or iPad.

Netflix still can’t stop VPN users, despite help from Paypal

Netflix still can’t stop VPN users, despite help from Paypal

It has been nearly a month since Netflix told the world at large that they were coming for their content. Or rather, that they would be stopping you from accessing content that wasn't available within your region. So what has really happened, during this time? Is it time to roll out the “Mission Accomplished” banner? Not quite.

Paypal gives Netflix an assist by cutting off VPN provider

We know that Netflix has started blocking users from utilizing VPN connections to bypass their regional restrictions. While this is mostly a futile effort on their part, it's most likely about appeasing studios than restricting users. But now it seems that they're actually getting some help from an unlikely source.

PayPal’s Venmo now lets you pay inside apps

PayPal’s Venmo now lets you pay inside apps

Apple was rumored to enter into the peer-to-peer payment market, potentially taking a bite out of PayPal's pie. But now PayPal is, though indirectly, taking a bite from Apple first. Venmo, the mobile payment system that PayPal now owns, has a new "Pay with Venmo" program. What it does is allow both consumers and businesses to connect to Venmo to pay for products and services inside mobile apps. In short, pretty much what Apple Pay, and Android Pay as well, does for some in-app purchases.
