The online payment company is looking into a quick method of purchasing products advertised on Internet-connected TVs.

PayPal vice president of platform, mobile and new ventures Osama Bedier announced an interesting concept of giving consumers a quick way of buying goods in the comfort of their television-watching zones. The billion-dollar e-commerce business now wants to tap the remote control as a tool in purchasing products via Internet-connected TVs.

Together, we are pushing forward the very future of television as an interactive shopping experience that harnesses the ease and safety of PayPal. Imagine this: lounging on your couch and channel surfing, then finding that perfect birthday present. A few clicks of your remote, and you’ve purchased the gift via your PayPal account. Pretty cool, right?!
