Online payment service PayPal added another country to their worldwide web belt today as they announced PayPal China. This new site joins the ranks of the company’s other international sites, which include presences in Australia, Belgium, Italy and Spain.

PayPal China, according to the company, offers payments in the local currency and integration with 15 Chinese banks and more than 20 different debt cards. The site is also currently the only direct online payment service which offers a buyer protection program for purchases made on Netease and TOM Online.
