Live from the podium at the PayPal X Developer Conference, Innovate 2010, we just announced the addition of PayPal as a supported provider for social login through Janrain Engage. Organizations using Janrain for social login now will be able to offer users the option to login to websites or native mobile applications with their existing PayPal credentials. There are over 80 million active PayPal users.
The Janrain Engage native iPhone SDK and web-based widget are both configured to support social login with PayPal.
Adding PayPal to the web-based Janrain Engage widget or native iPhone SDK takes just a few minutes using the standard Janrain configuration tool to drag and drop the PayPal login button. Instructions provided on the pop-up window provide guidance on completing the setup process. Below is a screenshot of the Janrain Engage configuration tool with its easy drag and drop interface to configure providers.
"Adding the ability to login with PayPal credentials to the Janrain Engage interface will provide a huge benefit to the millions of PayPal users, and commerce sites who use PayPal for transactions," said Ashish Jain, Product Manager, PayPal. "Configuring PayPal for login is a simple process with Janrain Engage, and we expect this will help businesses expand their online user engagement."
Interscope Records has added PayPal as a login provider across 125 artist websites.
Popular website Mahalo, a human powered search engine, is accepting PayPal logins through Janrain Engage.
Tal.ki, a service for easily embedding forums into a website, is accepting PayPal logins through Janrain Engage.
