Amazon Makes Good On Its Bill Me Later Promise

Amazon.com on Wednesday (July 9) finally deployed Bill Me Later as a payment option, almost eight months to the day after Amazon announced its intent to do so.

The credit-card-less payment option is partially owned by Amazon (Bill Me Later would only say that it was a minority investment), which is OK, given that Google owns GoogleCheckout and EBay owns PayPal. Web giants simply can't go anywhere these days without sporting their very own alternative payment vendor.
