Blockbuster, PayPal team up for payment method

Blockbuster announces a partnership with PayPal, providing another payment method to users of its online subscription service.

Blockbuster announced Tuesday it's teaming up with PayPal to offer users another payment method for purchases off its Web site.

Under the arrangement, consumers can use their PayPal account to pay for their online movie rental subscriptions. And later this summer, Blockbuster expects to launch its downloading service for movie rentals and purchases.

Eventually, Blockbuster expects to make PayPal available for use to purchase other things off the Web site, from gift cards to new and used DVDs.

Blockbuster is offering users a $10 cash back to their PayPal account, if they sign up for a new online Blockbuster rental subscription.
