It has been owned by eBay since 2003 (it was established in 1998) but eBay has announced that it is spinning off Paypal into an independent company. PayPal is one of the world's largest online payment platforms. It facilitates transactions which allow businesses to accept payments from customers, or individuals to send money to others. It makes its revenue by charging a small percentage of each transaction that takes place. Its revenues in 2014 were almost $8 billion. As well as changes in the company structure, PayPal is also developing and marketing new products and services. This includes solutions that will allow consumers to pay for things in bricks-and-mortar stores using PayPal. Make sure you get all the latest PayPal news by signing up for the free Wiser daily email. It is delivered once a day and contains articles on the company from around the web.
