Help (FAQs)

What is PassPort?

PassPort is a website designed to educate and empower small businesses with free tools to expand their global sales. When designing PassPort, PayPal asked small business owners about the challenges of selling internationally. Many struggled with confusing customs processes and currency exchange, unpredictable delivery tracking and postal services, and unclear seasonal sales cycles. Even businesses that already sell internationally were unaware of other countries’ cultural events and holidays that could provide opportunities to expand sales.

How do I use the Transactions/Trade Corridors maps?

The Transactions/Trade Corridors tool highlights date-specific, country-level buying patterns around the world. It’s an easy way to see the seasonality of international sales at a glance. On the “Transactions” map, users can toggle between the “Imports” and “Exports” views to see the top buying/selling countries; on the “Trade Corridors” map, top trade routes are represented by import/export data. In all views, click and slide the calendar line below the map to control the date, and hover on a country or trade corridor to view import/export data by date.

Will the data and insights on PassPort be updated to reflect new global trade trends?

PassPort content will be regularly updated so small business owners can access the most up-to-date data and tools to enhance their global sales. In the future, the site will feature additional data, currencies, case studies, and countries to ensure robust geographic representation.

What countries or regions are represented on PassPort?

The countries featured in PassPort represent key cross border corridors inside the PayPal network, based on their current sales growth rates and regional significance, making them ideal candidates to serve as resources for PayPal merchants. We continually work to add more countries, and the full list can be seen in the drop-down menus in the Tools section. If there is a particular country you’d like to see on PassPort, please send an email to support@paypal-passport.com.

Who can I contact if I have a question or comment?

We are eager to hear from you! If you have feedback to share, please send your questions or comments to support@paypal-passport.com. We are always looking to feature small businesses that sell internationally. If you would like your company to be featured on PassPort, please click on the “Be Featured” link tab on the right hand side of the screen.
