eBay (EBAY) is hoping to win the business of gold (and silver and platinum) bugs through a new partnership with bullion exchange APMEX. The eBay-hosted APMEX Bullion Center provides listings on 200 precious metal products. Meanwhile, Gartner is predicting 1/3 of consumer brands will integrate payment options into their mobile apps by 2015 - that should benefit PayPal, whose mobile volumes are soaring in part because typing a PayPal login is more convenient on a phone than typing in credit card info.

    I have been an ebay and Paypal customer for over a year. PayPal is becoming more and more accepted . I also find it the "only" way to buy from vendors outside the US. Plus ,the ebay service if you have a problem with a vendor is outstanding. The vendors respond quickly and positively, as they value the ebay/paypal relationship a lot.

     

    As an investor, the ebay/paypal model makes much sense. It is hard not to see worldwide expansion and growth..with profits.
