PayPal Launches in Spain

PayPal continues its strategy of following in eBay’s footsteps by lauching PayPal.es to support eBay.es.

According to the press release the “new site (https://www.paypal.es) is written in Spanish, offers information customized for Spanish PayPal account holders, and enables payments in Euros, the common currency in Spain.”

PayPal currently supports six currencies: U.S. Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Pounds Sterling, Euros, Japanese Yen, and Australian Dollars. I find it very interesting that PayPal supports Yen even though eBay offers no Japan Web site (yet).

PayPal Spain joins the list of 11 PayPal countries currently supported. There is plenty of room left to grow, as there are more than 22 eBay country Web sites (and counting).
