Who we are

PayPal gives people better ways to manage and move their money, offering them choice and flexibility in how they are able to send money, pay or get paid. We operate an open, secure and technology agnostic payments platform that businesses use to securely transact with their customers online, in stores and increasingly on mobile devices.

In 2015, 28% of the 4.9 billion payments we processed were made on a mobile device. With our million active customer accounts, PayPal is a truly global payments platform that is available to people in more than 202 countries, allowing customers to get paid in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds to their bank accounts in 56 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 25 currencies.
