PayPal Launching Micropayment Service; Facebook On Board

PayPal is taking a crack at one of the most desired features in e-commerce: A simple payment system for small purchases of digital goods and content. The eBay unit said today its much anticipated micropayment service will debut later this fall, featuring easy, two-click purchases for consumers and low fees and quick payment for merchants and publishers. Early adopters of the service include sites like FT.com and GigaOM, using the system for premium content and subscriptions, but the biggest boost will come from its integration with Facebook, putting it in front of millions of impulse buyers.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
