What’s news: The Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of software and services worldwide, announced today that it now accepts PayPal for purchase of its various Wi-Fi access service plans. The addition of PayPal enables an express lane for customers in hotspots who want to get online quickly without entering account information.
“Adding PayPal provides a quick and easy way for customers to sign up for service, especially on mobile devices with limited screen space,” said Dawn Callahan, vice president of consumer marketing for Boingo Wireless. “As Boingo continues to expand into new markets outside the US, we also needed more payment options since credit cards aren’t as universally held in many parts of the world.”
