PayPal is getting a slick makeover.

The eBay-owned electronic payments service rolled out a redesign to a few users, and Tech Crunch has some preview screenshots.

They note that the home page is significantly less busy and "also happens to look a lot more touch-friendly," no doubt making it more accessible to the onslaught of tablets, smartphones, and other next-gen devices.

The navigation bars have also been simplified—replaced with three tabs: buy, sell, and transfer.

For many of Paypal's 100-million users, this redesign is, like a lot of e-payments out there, long overdue.
