Why are eBay and PayPal separating?

Why are eBay and PayPal separating?
Creating two standalone businesses best positions eBay and PayPal to capitalise on their respective growth opportunities in the rapidly changing global commerce and payments landscape, and it is the best path for allowing us to focus on becoming an even better payments partner to our merchant customers.

What does this mean for me?
eBay will continue to work with PayPal to provide the same customer experience as before.  However, as PayPal and eBay become separate companies, please note that you’ll need to contact eBay and PayPal separately regarding your respective accounts.
