Is a Pay Pal account required to distribute a free app?

I'm developing a new application for the BlackBerry Curve and would like to distribute it via BB App World, but it seems like a Pay Pal account is required, even if the app will be offered for free.  Does anyone know whether there is a way to avoid setting up a Pay Pal account?

HI and Welcome to the Forums!

 

I can attest that, for the recipient, free apps can be downloaded and installed from AppWorld without linking a PayPal account.

 

Hope that helps!
