Why have PayPal and eBay become separate companies? Weren’t they already separate?
Previously, PayPal and eBay were related as members of the eBay Inc. corporate family of companies. Within this corporate structure, PayPal already was operating as a separate, stand-alone company. Now, eBay and PayPal are no longer part of the same group of companies. Separation makes it easier for both PayPal and eBay to grow their own businesses and provides each company with new market and partnership opportunities that would have been more difficult to pursue while part of the combined corporate family.
What does the separation of PayPal and eBay mean to me?
We’re committed to maintaining a quality relationship with our customers. We’ve made updates to the PayPal User Agreement to keep the same customer experience in place. eBay will continue to work with PayPal for payments, refunds and holds. This is in line with how PayPal and eBay have worked together in the past.
