Of all of the titans of the Web industry right now, few have put themselves in as enviable a position as PayPal. 

Apple has skyrocketing stock values and two of the hottestselling products ever made. Google and Facebook have more website visitors than most countries have citizens — not to mention all of their personal data. And Amazon has set the bar so high in e-commerce that it controls much of the movement throughout the industry.

I am glad you guys wrote this article. Many of our clients are small to medium businesses that require some type of e-commerce on their site, but in the beginning of a new website, cannot justify the costs involved in maintaining their own SSL, a merchant, monthly fees (regardless if there are transactions or not), plus the additional cost to integrate a full shopping cart into the site. PayPal Payments Standard allows us to integrate a payment and e-commerce solution for our clients afford-ably using PayPal's development tools and customer support.

I know that many people have negative experiences with PayPal, but they have come a long way since their inception, and continually offer new ways to assist people like me to make money off of their product.

Kudos to PayPal, and thanks to you guys for writing the article. I was able to smooth over a heated discussion about using PayPal with a new client recently, and after he read the article, we were able to come to an agreement!
