Paypal is a worldwide payments system which allows you to attach particular cards and bank accounts to your account so you can make purchases with the click of a button rather than retyping in your card details over and over again. Through Paypal you can send and request money and the online money transfers serve as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods of money transfers such as cheques.


Paypal is one of the world’s largest internet payment companies and from 2002 and July 2015 it was an owned subsidiary of Ebay until it was spun off as an independently traded company. In 2014 Paypal moved $228 billion across 26 currencies in more than 190 nations and they generated $7.9 billion of revenue which was 44% of Ebay’s total profits that year. Currently Paypal operates in 203 markets allowing customers to receive, send and hold funds in 26 currencies worldwide.
