Default More merchants should use Paypal

I see that a lot of merchants online, including Amazon.com, don't accept Paypal. I don't understand why they don't, so many use Paypal today it would really increase business. Some merchants that I know personally don't accept Paypal, I've tried to convince them to use it but they won't. It doesn't make sense!

I guess Paypal was actually created mainly for eBay shopping by eBay Inc. That its used worldwide now by people who dont even use paypal is a great thing. And most single-business/small-business owners use paypal as far as i know.
We cant really force, not even request big Merchants like Amazon to use paypal, when they maybe pretty much happy with Stormpay/Xoom/egold

I personally really like Paypal as an option - one of the particular benefits that isn't mentioned over other processors such as Worldpay, is that if you get a new debit/credit card, you input the new updated details in Paypal and your subscriptions continue as normal. However, with Worldpay, you have to chase down every individual vendor and correct each subscription manually - a real pain.

I agree that more retailers should accept PayPal. If they did, my online spend would be ten times higher than it already is...

I prefer Paypal myself. It seems to be the most well-know payment processing agency around. I didn't realize so many big name companies don't take it. But then if they did I'd be like Eagle and spend more than I made!

How pleasant to have a 'positive' PayPal thread! I agree with everything that's been said - having been with them since the 1st day they accepted UK accounts. And as a merchant, PayPal is now a viable option as customers no longer even need PayPal accounts to pay you.

Know I know I'm being pedantic (I'm that kinda guy!) but PayPal was created by a company called X.com and bought by Ebay a couple of years ago (I think). I think PayPal was ruining eBays own 'BidPay' and so they bought them and closed BidPay down. That last sentence is just vague memory, so if I'm wrong - please feel free to be pedantic with me!

It would be wise to accept as many payment methods as possible. That way, people aren't limited to one or two ways.
