CALGARY, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - announced today that Dickson Chu, Vice President of Global Product Experience at PayPal, an eBay company, has been appointed to Shopster's Board of Directors.

"PayPal has been a pioneering force in e-commerce. They have created accessibility to the internet and online commerce in a way no other company has done and Dickson has been on the front lines of this effort for the past 5 years. The experience and insight into e-commerce that Dickson brings to Shopster's Board of Directors will be invaluable in helping guide the next stage of Shopster's growth and development," says Sarath Samarasekera, CEO and co-founder of Shopster.

Dickson has been a senior-level executive in the financial services and technology industries for more than 23 years. Previous to his current role at PayPal, Dickson served as Vice President, Product Management Consumer and Merchant Services, responsible for managing the growth of the company's 'off-eBay' business.

PayDirect, where he was responsible for transforming the domestic person-to-person (P2P) payments business unit into an international money-transfer business in partnership with MoneyGram.
