So how did all get started? 1998 Paypal’s prototype Confinity Inc was founded by Ken Howery, Luke Nosek, Max Levchin, Peter Thiel and Elon Musk. In its early stage, the company grew 10% nearly every day. Signing up at this time brought $20, $10 or $5 each time which leads to the success.
In summer 2000 the number of PayPal users jumped from 1 to 5 million. The account base jumped to over 100,000 after partnering with eBay.
In the year 2002 PayPal joined the world of publicly traded companies. It was the shining start on Nasdaq of the launch year with 55% of growth and also later the year eBay finally bought PayPal for $1.5 billion. Later 2014 PayPal spun off again from eBay. The market value climbed to the $49 billion on its first official day trading after splitting from eBay. Comparing now eBay and PayPal on the stock market showed greater success for PayPal without being parented to eBay.
The success story continues with big partnerships.

Hello, i think that i saw you visited my web site so i came to “return the favor”.I am attempting to find things to enhance my site!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!
That’s a very nice infographic made. My vote for you is that if you could also show how Paypal is getting disrupted by other payment mechanisms like Apple Pay/Square etc that would also be useful
It’s interesting how some companies rise to the top with such simple ideas. Your infographic is fantastic! I also think it’s cool that the founders of companies like LinkedIn and YouTube were former PayPal employees.
Great facts about PayPal, this was really informative interesting to read this. Thanks for sharing!!
Learnt some of the great facts about PayPal. But PayPal, is not widely used in India for payments as of now.
Rupay is a growing online card payment method in India. Anyone having RuPay cards can make domestic online debit payments for reservations, booking, ticketing and shopping using Rupay PaySecure. If you look at their logo it looks like PayPal, I would assume they copied it 🙂
Very informative! I had no idea there was so much involved in the starting and growing of PayPal. Thanks for sharing!!
Such cool facts about Paypal. Honestly I didn’t know how the company started so this was a great read. Thanks for the history lesson.
Wow – quite an infographic, a lot of work has gone in to that and it’s great. There’s no doubt that Paypal is a massive success story, I’d be interested to see an alternative timeline where ebay and paypal didn’t ‘meet’ as you say. I think both companies owe a lot to meeting the right people at the right time, and that was the moment.
Wow this was so informative! I know a lot goes into these websites but this really helps show how much goes I to building a site like this! Thanks for sharing
