Amazon Says Yes To Bill Me Later
After making an equity investment in Bill Me Later, Inc., an online payment company, Amazon.com said it would also make the Bill Me Later payment option available on the site for purchases.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Amazon will be billed later, when the deal closes in the first quarter of 2008.
