PayPal is an online payments processing company. Founded in the late 1990s, much of PayPal’s early success resulted from its popularity with sellers operating on the then fast-growing online auction merchant eBay.
Acquired by eBay in 2002, Paypal become rapidly popular for its quick, convenient means of payment processing. Over the years however, the company has come under fire. Many customers, finding their funds confiscated or frozen – often without explanation – have taken to founding websites to record and catalogue angry and dismayed complaints.
Several governments have become frustrated with Paypal’s status, which is essentially that of a bank but without any of the protective rights and regulations that govern official, physical banks. Despite over a decade in operation and the establishment of a 24/7 premium service, Paypal’s UK customer service continues to be fraught by consumer complaints of inept bureaucracy and sluggishness.
Despite misgivings on the part of customers and regulators alike, Paypal is now a publicly traded company in its own right. It remains highly profitable, popular and near-ubiquitous online.
