Yahoo Ditches PayPal Wannabe
from the that-took-a-while dept
For over four years, Yahoo has offered a PayPal wannabe called PayDirect in association with HSBC. I think I was one of about 3 or 4 people who actually used it at one time or another. However, since no one else has been using it during that time, and everyone just uses PayPal (when it's up), Yahoo is officially shutting the PayDirect service down. It appears that in the easy online transaction department, this really is a winner takes all market.
