PayPal overhauls U.S. rates as payments rivalry heats up
NEW YORK, June 18 (Reuters) - PayPal Holdings Inc (PYPL.O) will lift merchant costs for its branded payment products while cutting those for behind-the-scenes processing of some Visa and Mastercard transactions, a bold move in an increasingly competitive digital payments sector.
The strategic shift reflects PayPal's growing power in online transactions, which surged during the COVID pandemic. As consumers and businesses flocked to the company, a market leader, during lockdown, its active accounts mounted to million, more than twice as many as in
The company said the move reflected the value of its proprietary services, with consumers nearly three times as likely to complete a purchase when PayPal products are available at checkout, while users of the new buy-now-pay-later option spend an average of 15% more.
"We are changing prices to help our customers understand even more clearly where we provide value," Dan Leberman, PayPal's senior vice president for small and medium business and partners, said in an interview.
"The wallet is of tremendous value; the card processing is commoditized."
PayPal shares were up % late Friday afternoon.
PayPal will charge sellers % plus 49 cents to process transactions made through its proprietary products, including its button on merchant websites and its digital wallet, according to material the company shared with Reuters.
The higher rate applies to products like PayPal Checkout, Pay with Venmo, PayPal Credit and new buy-now-pay-later offering Pay in 4.
PayPal has million active accounts, including 31 million merchants globally, and also owns Venmo, Braintree and iZettle.
It will be hard for merchants to know how much extra value they are getting from PayPal features in exchange for the higher rates, said Ben Dwyer, the founder of cardfellow.com who analyzes processing deals offered to merchants.
"PayPal wants to be a comprehensive payment solution, but it is tough to get there by selling on value over price."
Sellers will pay % plus 49 cents for PayPal to process, unseen by consumers, online payments made with Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards from other companies.
In the past, PayPal charged sellers % plus 30 cents for payments on most online transactions, regardless of its role.
Lowering basic transaction processing rates helps PayPal compete with rivals including Stripe and Authorize.net. PayPal expects to acquire customers because of the discounts, Leberman said.
"We think it's a bold price to come out with," he said.
As large merchants tend to negotiate unique deals, rate hikes will largely affect small-to-medium sized businesses, some of which have lost confidence this year due to a nationwide labor shortage and inflation worries. read more
The changes largely reflect services PayPal has developed since splitting from eBay Inc (EBAY.O) in
Although most of its transactions are online, PayPal will also reduce prices for in-person transactions through its network, which should help it compete with Square Inc (SQ.N).
For most of those purchases over $10, PayPal will charge % plus 10 cents. For cheaper buys, the rate will usually be % plus 5 cents.
PayPal's business boomed during the pandemic as more homebound consumers spent online. Itprocessed $ billion in payments in the first quarter, up 49% from the year-earlier period.
"It's more than just pricing," said Aaron Press, an analyst at research company IDC. "They are making sure the market understands that they should be thinking of PayPal as a comprehensive payments strategy and not just one form of payment."
"Especially post pandemic, that has become very, very important."

PayPal says makes $1 billion in small-business loans in first two years

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - PayPal Holdings Inc PYPL.O, the online payment processor, said on Tuesday its small-business lending program has processed $1 billion in loans in the first two years of its launch and more than doubled loan growth in that span.
PayPal Working Capital is extending short-term loans totaling more than $ million per month, or $3 million per day, to a mix of sellers on eBay Inc EBAY.O and standalone small- to medium-sized merchants, the company said at a payments conference in Las Vegas.
PayPal separated from eBay earlier this year, and Chief Executive Officer Dan Schulman has stated he is looking to use PayPal’s size to offer affordable financial services widely.
The biggest challenge for a small business is getting access to credit and about 90 percent of businesses to which PayPal extends credit come back for a repeat loan, Steve Allocca, PayPal vice president and general manager, global credit, told Reuters.
Allocca said the businesses pay back loans as a percentage of daily sales.
Online lending accounts for about 3 percent of the roughly $1 trillion of outstanding personal and small business loans in the United States.
The default rate for small businesses with credit under a $1 million stood at 1 percent in but is seen rising to percent in as new lenders, with varying ability to assess risk, increase lending, according to small business credit ratings provider PayNet.
In June, Amazon.com Inc AMZN.O said it was extending its small-business lending program to seven new countries where credit is a key factor in competing for new vendors and grabbing market share.
PayPal currently offers credit to businesses in the United States, UK and Australia.
PayPal Credit Expansion Now Lets Merchants Set Terms, Including Option For Interest-Free Payments
Last July, PayPal rebranded its Bill Me Later service as PayPal Credit, as a part of the companys efforts to bring its credit products more to the center of PayPal. Today, as promised earlier, PayPal Credit is expanding its support for monthly payments with an option for retailers that allows them to decide on the number of months and interest rates that work best for their customers. Retailers will also be able to choose to interest-free credit options for the first time, for their customers shopping online.
The announcement is being made at the National Retail Federation conference on Monday, where PayPal also announced a newly added Business Consulting service.
With the upgraded PayPal Credit feature, customers will be able to divide larger purchases into smaller ones allowing online shoppers to pay via PayPal when they may have otherwise turned to their credit cards.
The PayPal Credit offering that had been previously offered was if a customer spent $99, they would have had no interest and no payments for six months. PayPal says it will still make that available to retailers, but this change allows for them to offer more flexible credit to their customers.
The company said in July that it sees consumer spending go up 30% after a customer adopts a PayPal credit vehicle, citing studies that have tracked usage of the older Bill Me Later service as well as the GE-issued PayPal credit card.
PayPal also said it was buying back the GE portfolio in as part of its strategy to increase and expand its credit offerings something the company notes is key as it expands into the offline world, and omni-channel. The company later plans to expand PayPal Credit more directly to retail and point-of-sale, but thats for a future date.
For now, its about bringing more online consumers to PayPal Credit. With the new offering, merchants are paid immediately and PayPal settles with the customer.
Additionally, PayPal announced a new set of Business Consulting services that will allow businesses to learn more about best practices like reducing cart abandonment, improving conversion, or making international sales, for example. The consulting team had earlier been available only to select (read: larger) PayPal merchants, where it says to have increased incremental revenues by the millions. Now its opening to all, no matter the merchants size.
The program had been in pilot testing for several months, and to date, PayPal has worked with hundreds of merchants.
Some of the new PayPal consulting services will be offered for free, while PayPal will charge for others, like custom development, depending on the merchants needs. The company has yet to announce pricing, but notes in most cases theres no charge.

He has a whole gang of boys and girls there, as well as little children of warriors, whom, of course, no one offends. There was a case when Munk with his friend Teno called us to the attic of one of the houses, where they had a kind of den. Something like sofas made of hay, skins and rags, a bunch of different junk, toys, jugs.
His inner circle gathered there and decided especially important matters, as he told us. We sat, talked, drank fruit drinks from jugs.
