Macerkopf, a German Apple fansite, has spotted something rather interesting on the Apple online store. Following a redesign, the store is now accepting PayPal payments for items purchased at Apple.com. Whether or not this means it’s going to be more widely available at stores globally is unclear. It could be a German-only option since – as noted by John Brownlee at CoM – it’s pretty rare for German nationals to carry credit cards since a lot of retail stores don’t accept credit cards.
In the mean time, keep your eyes peeled and pointed towards your own national Apple store and let us know if you spot the option to pay using PayPal appear.
