Appcelerator has signed a mobile partner program agreement with PayPal to offer a fully integrated mobile commerce offering called Titanium+Commerce to over eight million PayPal merchants in the first half of 2011. Titanium+Commerce, available in beta starting today, makes it easy for any merchant to rapidly build cross-platform mobile applications that harness a full set of commerce capabilities using existing Web skills and technologies. Merchants and online businesses can rapidly extend into mobile commerce by enabling the purchase of real and virtual goods, services, and content from smartphones, tablets, connected TVs, and other devices.

Titanium+Commerce will initially consist of an integration of PayPal’s Mobile Payment Library on top of Appcelerator’s Titanium development platform. Both companies are also working to expand their capabilities to include a broader range of integrated commerce capabilities, including transaction analytics and other joint integrations. A demonstration of Titanium+Commerce is now available and will be made available in early 2011 as ready-to-use templates for any merchant to easily customize with their own branding and inventory.
