“What is the USE of Paypal now that is not connected to ebay any more”

 

For businesses that have their own website to receive payments for donations, e-commerce, marketplaces, payouts for mobile apps. For people who need payment processing services to send personal payments, odd jobs, freelancing.

Ebay is just one of thousands of business you can use paypal on.

Also buyers still CAN use paypal on Ebay if they want to, its just they pay Ebay and Ebay pay the sellers via their managed payments option.

I bought from Ebay using Paypal only  yesterday.

 

Don't think losing Ebay will affect Paypal much to be honest.

PayPal Holdings Inc (PYPL.O) beat Wall Street estimates for quarterly profit on Wednesday, with a coronavirus-driven shift to online shopping and digital transactions driving record levels of payment volumes for both the quarter and the year.

PayPal said it was expecting an addition of about 50 million active users in 2021 and forecast annual revenue of about $25.5 billion, well above the $21.4 billion estimated by analysts. Its shares were up 5% in trading after the bell.
