PayPal has been committed to small business since it pioneered online shopping nearly 15 years ago. From Manhattan to San Diego, online merchants in nearly every category imaginable use PayPal to help them sell more. And as the business environment changes, we continue to evolve to help merchants and offer them products and services beyond just payments. For example:


  • We recently launched PayPal Working Capital to help online small businesses get quick and easy access to funds.

  • Offer Bill Me Later so merchants can provide their customers with more flexible payment options that help drive sales. A recent study by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by PayPal showed an average of 18% lift in sales for businesses that implement Bill Me Later banners.

  • Recently launched PayPal Invoicing for Office 2013, which allows users to create, send, and manage invoices all from within Excel.

PayPal remains the clear choice for online small businesses everywhere who've come to count on us to provide essential tools for them that are easy to get up and running, evolve with their needs, and help them sell more. Every five minutes a new small business signs up for PayPal, further proving that ours is a brand that merchants and 132 million customers worldwide trust.
