FT to use PayPal for daily and weekly payments

Per-article fee deemed too tedious.

The accouncement was made by FT CEO John Ridding.

This payment mode is different from the newspaper's regular annual subscription.

The earlier "micropayment" or "per-article fee" model considered by the paper has been rejected as paying for each article is considered to be tedious.

The New York Times is also unlikely to use the micropayment option.
