PayPal is set to provide its new online service that will make Paypal available for digital goods, according to their press release on Tuesday.

According to Paypal, this new online payment solution will allow consumers to pay for digital goods in as little as two clicks.

The company then believes that these micropayments for digital goods will be faster, safer, and more economical to send and receive money worldwide.

The new solution, in which Paypal announced its available late fall this year, offers PayPal’s competitive fee structure for micropayments, in which Paypal said they will charge 5 percent plus 5 cents for purchases below $12.

Meanwhile, Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, revealed that Facebook will integrate PayPal’s new micropayments for digital goods on Facebook.
