PayPal's Storefront widget, which launched recently, lets casual sellers easily create virtual storefronts to embed into their blogs or websites. Now PayPal says the widget can be used on the social networking site MySpace. You can select which section of your MySpace page you want it to appear, the "About Me" page, for example, and you can also add a title or a description. Note that the widget was developed by and hosted on PayPal Labs, "a project site for the latest beta apps created by PayPal engineers."

According to the Storefront FAQs, 17 currencies are supported. You can allow customers to rate their buying experience and review your storefront, assigning stars and adding comments. See the FAQs section for more information about the Storefront widget (http://storefront.paypallabs.com/store/FAQ/storefront_faq.html).
