PayPal Adds Markets, Language Support

Online payment service—and eBay subsidiary—PayPal has announced it has expanded its reach to 87 new national markets, and had finally made its primary site available in three new languages. The new additions make PayPal available in 190 markets around the world.

As of today, users will also be able to access the main PayPal site—and all online transaction processes—in Spanish, French, or simplified Chinese. Users with Internet browsers configured to prefer any of those three languages will automatically be offered to view the site in their preferred language when they first visit the site.

“We are thrilled to expand our services to 190 markets worldwide, and introduce three new languages to the PayPal.com site,” said Dana Stalder, PayPal senior VP, in a statement. “By enabling customers to view PayPal.com in Spanish, French and simplified Chinese, we now offer customers in 46 markets the ability to transact in their native language, making domestic and cross border trading secure and simple for millions of customers around the globe.”

PayPal is a leading online transaction processor, and is particular popular with users of online auction sites like eBay, although PayPal can be used to purchase a vast array of goods and services from non-eBay sites and merchants.

The 87 new markets PayPal now supports are listed below; PayPal also offers a complete list of supported markets around the world.
