I wrote an indepth analysis eighteen months ago about PayPal’s 100 months birthday and now they’re celebrating their official tenth anniversary, so I thought I would add a small addendum. Although I say it’s a small addendum, it’s quite an interesting one.
Basically, I was updating some old slides about PayPal and thought that I should track their number of users over the years, as they do publish these numbers. First of all, I looked up the last published quarterly results from PayPal on the eBay website.
In their latest company presentation, published June 16th, they have these figures:
- PayPal operates in 190 markets using 17 currencies
- A third of people in the UK have a PayPal account
- Over 100,000 websites accept PayPal in Europe
