PSA: Changes with PayPal API spells trouble for some developers

If you’re a developer who relies on PayPal for in-app purchase, and you’ve been experiencing problems with payments recently, the reason behind those hangups may come as a rather frustrating surprise.

According to one developer, PayPal has recently decided to revamp their API for Android without telling those who rely on PayPal for in-app purchase in Android apps. There’s been so many changes to the API, that apps relying on the old system won’t function properly.

Changing the API for PayPal to include improved functionality is never a bad thing, but not properly notifying the developers using it is. If you’re a developer using PayPal for in-app purchases, or a customer who has tried to buy something, be sure to let us know if you’ve experienced any trouble.
