PayPal doesn’t require much introduction. Almost everyone who has ever had a need to purchase something or pay for a service online has come across PayPal.
Founded in 1998, PayPal grew to be one of the most popular mediums of online payments. The company helps people and businesses to pay for products, make payments, and receive money in more than 100 currencies in 203 markets. It is very easy to open a PayPal account and start receiving money or making payments. When it was established, PayPal was initially under eBay which serves as the parent company of PayPal, however, the company later broke away to become an independent company. Since then, PayPal not only has office in the United States but other parts of the world.
After opening your PayPal account, the amount of money you can receive will be limited to a certain amount. This is done to provide security and limit fraudulent activities. However, you can remove this limit once you have verified your account by adding your credit card details, bank account details, as well as your phone number. In most cases, PayPal will charge the credit card you added to your account a little token just to confirm that you have money in the account.
Today, PayPal is available for use in most countries of the world. Your profession doesn’t matter; you can create your PayPal account and start receiving payments or making payments online.
PayPal has over 210 million active customer accounts and about 15 million merchant accounts. The company has continued to grow in strength. In fact, they made revenue of $10.842 billion in 2016 alone. The recent projection shows that the company will make around 12 billion in revenue this year.
Last year (2016) alone, PayPal processed over $6.1 billion in payments.
