Electronic means of payment are now very popular because they are safe and convenient to use. Such companies attract clients and partners with their innovations. And PayPal is one of the most well-established companies in this industry. Here are the prospects of investing in its stocks.
PayPal is a digital startup. If it is accessible in a certain country, it provides inhabitants of that country with the possibility to store and transact money by using a smartphone connected to the Internet. Currently, the company provides services to almost 250 million users and accepts over 50 currencies.
The company itself was founded in 2000 by Ken Howery, Max Levin, Elon Musk, Luke Nosek, Peter Thiel, and Yu Pan. It was the unification of the companies Confinity and X.com. In 2002, PayPal was sold to eBay but 13 years after this, it became independent again.
PayPal went public through IPO a year after its foundation — in 2002. On NASDAQ, PYPL (stock symbol for PayPal) has been listed since the date it went public. The securities of the company are also tradable on other stock exchanges, and one can buy them through forex brokers or online platforms for stock trading.
PayPal is an innovative company that defines its major goal as making all online payments completely safe and protected. This aim and successful performance of the company in terms of making transactions secure, heavily contribute to the international image of the company.
