An anonymous reader writes "PayPal on Monday announced a new Android SDK that tries to make it easier for developers to accept in-app payments on Google's mobile platform. The company says the software development kit will be available for US developers on May 15. The Android debut comes just over two months after the mobile SDK for iOS, which supports iOS 5+ on all varieties of iPhone and iPad screen sizes and resolutions. At the time, PayPal said an Android flavor was coming, and now it has delivered: its SDK will support version 2.2, meaning Froyo (released in May 2010), and above."

      No shit.

      Until PayPal is actually regulated like the bank it pretends not to be, I sure as hell wouldn't use them, and I sure as hell wouldn't set up my phone to use them.

      They're not a company I have any trust in.

    Using a 3rd party payment processor is against the Google Developer Terms of Service.

    Section 3.3 : "All fees received by Developers for Products distributed via the Market must be processed by the Market's Payment Processor."

      It does, but it's awesome for devs that break the TOS anyways and can't collect cash via Google Wallet anymore.

      Only if you can accept payments via Google Checkout/Wallet.

      You see, the Play market is available in more countries that you can accept payment from - paid apps are simply not shown to those countries. (For a
