PayPal acquires VeriSign Payment Services

We’re pleased to announce that PayPal has completed the acquisition of VeriSign Payment Services*.

By adding VeriSign Payment Services’ industry-leading tools—such as Payflow Link and Payflow Pro—to PayPal’s suite of payment solutions, we’re now able to offer online merchants even more choices for their businesses. PayPal is already planning new feature enhancements for these solutions to ensure that our products continue to deliver premier performance for our customers.

PayPal intends to operate VeriSign Payment Services as a standalone business. Current VeriSign Payment Services merchants will not experience significant changes to their service—it will function as it does now. Plus, the customer support team behind VeriSign Payment Services’ products will continue to support our merchants, meaning they will enjoy the same secure, reliable payment service they’ve come to expect.

Moving forward, all of us here at VeriSign Payment Services and PayPal are thrilled to provide you with the best payment solutions in the industry.
