EBay‘s payments service PayPal has redesigned its online checkout process to let shoppers complete their payment on merchants’ websites, rather than go to a separate PayPal site.

Simplifying the checkout process – and having shoppers stay on an e-commerce site rather than click over to a separate PayPal page – means they are more likely to complete the transaction. That could also mean more people will use PayPal.

PayPal said Monday that it is testing out the new checkout process with a few merchants and will make it available to large businesses in the first half of this year. Medium and small businesses will also be able to use it down the line.
