PayPal has integrated its technology with Macromedia's Dreamweaver 4 and Dreamweaver UltraDev 4 products to provide Web developers with quick and easy solutions for building e-commerce Internet sites.
The person-to-person payments outfit has also launched the PayPal Developer Network (PDN), to provide Web professionals with a central resource for detailed technical information about PayPal products and services, as well as free access to e-commerce tools like the PayPal shopping cart.
The PayPal Developer Network also contains a directory of more than 50 e-commerce solutions that use PayPal, including shopping carts, storefronts, affiliate software, and subscription management services built by PayPal developers.
David Sacks, chief operating officer of PayPal, says: "The PayPal Developer Network was created to help Web designers and developers build e-commerce Web sites and more than 20,000 PayPal developers have joined PDN already. It's a great place for Web professionals to start making money for their clients quickly."
