This statistic highlights PayPal’s Active Customers Accounts Growth, reported on a quarterly basis from Q2 2016 onwards.

PayPal Holdings Inc. is an American company that operates a global online payments system. It supports online money transfers serving as an electronic alternative to traditional methods of payment using paper. Max Levchin, Peter Thiel and Luke Nosek originally established PayPal as Confinity in 1998. The company later merged with Elon Musk’s online banking company X.com. PayPal replaced the name Confinity in 2001. They operate as a payment processor for many commercial and personal uses and charge a fee for certain benefits. Solutions provided by it include products like PayPal, PayPal Credit, Braintree, Venmo, Xoom, and Paydiant. PayPal became a wholly owned subsidiary of eBay in 2002.

Conclusion

The Covid-19 pandemic can be deemed as the reason of the incremental increase in the number of new PayPal active accounts in the first quarter of 2020. Paper cash has been identified as a means of transmission of the virus. As a result individuals are now skeptical to use the same. Therefore, leading to an increase in digital payments across the world. With the world moving towards digitization we can only expect the number of users and number of transactions through PayPal to increase in the coming few years.
