After admitting that handling the “funding” part of crowdfunding has been a challenge, PayPal has officially promised better support with new policies in the coming months. Engadget spotted the company’s blog post, which slipped out inconspicuously on Wednesday and details PayPal’s difficulty with funding groups in a timely manner while remaining compliant with the government. It’s unclear what new policies or processes will be in place, but it’s likely a welcome relief for entrepreneurs and artists who have seen their newfound funds frozen after campaigns have completed.
