PayPal was secretly born in December, 1998 as part of Confinity, a software company that primarily worked on security software for mobile devices, founded by Max Levchin, Peter Thiel, Luke Nosek, and Ken Howery. Originally developed as a secure money transfer service within Confinity in 1999, PayPal got a real shot in the arm when the company merged with Elon Musk’s, an online banking company. Musk left shortly thereafter, relating to an internal disagreement.

PayPal would become the official name of the service in 2001 and soon saw incredibly growth as an easily secure payment platform on the internet. It was taken public in 2002, an IPO which generated $61 million in funding for the company.

In July of that same year, PayPal was purchased by the auction giant eBay in a deal worth $1.5 billion, with a view to PayPal becoming the dominant payment method on eBay’s website. According to eBay’s own numbers, around the time of the takeover 70% of auctions listed PayPal as an accepted payment method, and  25% of auctions were being paid for that way, making the takeover a very sensible proposition indeed.

Under eBay’s stewardship, PayPal grew dramatically, adding over 100 million active monthly users spread across 190 different markets and 25 different currencies by 2010. Services for merchants followed shortly thereafter, bringing Paypal into shops around the world.

In September 2014, it was announced that PayPal would spin off into its own separate entity, a change that was completed in July 2015. Today, PayPal boasts over 170 million users and an annual revenue in excess of $8 billion. That’s more than enough to make PayPal the biggest online payment company in the world, but their growth doesn’t seem like it’ll stop here. Strong advertising campaigns and mobile apps are poised to reach more customers than ever before.
