Barnes & Noble's website (www.bn.com) has added PayPal as a payment method. Barnes & Noble.com shoppers can pay for purchases with their PayPal accounts using a credit card, bank account or stored account balance. Barnes & Noble joins Dell, iTunes, Starbucks, Buy.com, People and Walgreens as large retailers and organizations who offer PayPal.

PayPal has more than 114 million accounts and is available to users in 55 markets around the world. "Adding PayPal as a payment option gives our customers more ways to shop with us, providing even more convenience, ease, and flexibility," said Marie Toulantis, chief executive officer of Barnes & Noble.com in a press statement. "We look forward to serving the millions of PayPal customers who can now shop for their books and other entertainment products at Barnes & Noble.com, with the convenience of using their PayPal accounts."
