PayPal’s competitive advantage over competitors is twofold:
• Ease of integration: Any merchant can use PayPal’s tools to quickly add payments to an

unauthorized payments, reducing the cost and risk of making purchases online versus
traditional credit cards

PayPal derives revenue from each payment transaction it processes. Customers pay nothing
to transfer funds to a merchant using the service, but merchants pay between 1.9% and 2.9%,
depending on the dollar value of the transaction, to receive funds from a customer. Each
transaction is subject to a minimum transaction fee of $0.30. This is a comparable transaction
cost to that of a merchant account, without the up-front costs of establishing the merchant
account. Based on these charges, PayPal expects to drive between $X and $Y based on an
estimated volume of Z million transactions in 2000.
