Convio Ties Into PayPal

Austin-based Convio, which develops software-as-a-service for nonprofits, and online payments service PayPal said Wednesday afternoon that the two have agreed to integrate PayPal as a donation option into Convio's software. The two said that PayPal will be a part of Convio's integrated services, which will make it easier for Convio's customers to accept PayPal payments. Details on the arrangement were not disclosed, but the firms said that PayPal will offer discounted rates for 501(c)3 charities who use its service to collect donations.
