BURLINGTON, Ont. – Ikea Canada is adding a PayPal payment option for online purchases from the home furnishings company.

The Swedish retailer says it wants to make Ikea more accessible to Canadians.

PayPal has about 6.4 million active user accounts in Canada.

The service is an alternative to credit and debit cards, which Ikea Canada will continue to accept.

Walmart stopped taking the Visa credit card at some of its stores in Thunder Bay, Ont., on Monday in a dispute over fees.

Visa Canada says it offered Walmart one of the lowest rates in the country but the department store chain wanted more.
