U.S. payments firm PayPal (PYPL.O) has registered as an electronic systems operator in Indonesia; and its customers can now access its services, the company said.
PayPal was one of several websites that Indonesia blocked at the weekend because of their failure to comply with new licensing rules.
Companies were given a July deadline to register under new rules that would allow authorities to compel platforms; to disclose data of certain users and take down content deemed unlawful or that “disturbs public order” within four hours if urgent, and 24 hours if not.
Johnny G. Plate, Indonesia’s communications minister, on Wednesday urged people to avoid using; unregistered services “to minimize a loss that may incur, if…illegal acts occur in those private services.”
The Communications Ministry said it also unblocked access to services of the search engine Yahoo; and video-game company Valve Corporation, including Steam and Dota 2, after it said it had blocked them.
