eBay To Buy PayPal?

from the seems-logical dept

For a while we kept saying that PayPal’s IPO was really to flush a buyer out of the woodwork to come along and acquire them. Apparently, eBay was a little slow in making the move – but the most natural acquirer is apparently looking at the possibility now. Despite having their own competing service, it still seems that most eBay users prefer to use PayPal. To be honest, I’m really surprised this hasn’t happened much sooner.
