Sun has adopted PayPal X for the Java Store

Paying for Java applets on Java Phones via PayPal is one of the new customers for the platform!

"Java Store Beta Payment Mechanism Powered by PayPal"

"Sun now supports for-fee applications submitted by developers for distribution

in the Java Store Beta. Developers can price their offering anywhere from $1.99

to $200.00 (USD)... Developers will receive 70 percent of any for-fee application sold

through the Java Store Beta. Utilizing the new Adaptive Payment API from PayPal,

consumers can authorize the Java Store Beta to bill against their PayPal account

so they can simply click the "Buy" button and never have to leave the store. In

addition, when a customer makes a payment in the Java Store Beta, the

application owner also gets paid at the time of the purchase."
