PayPala Massive Contributing Factor to eBay

eBay's revenue explosion was underpinned by growth in Total Payment Volume
(TPV). Growth came from various revenue streams withinternational TPV
bloating by 28%. International TPV contributed 48% of the entire TPV of eBay
in the last quarter of 2012. Similar efforts to push its global and offline
presence could lead to PayPal recording similar growth rates in 2013, thus
allowing eBay to probably beat its own estimates. This estimate is underpinned
by agrowth recorded in mobile adoption in the last few years, which led to
PayPal's mobile payment revenue increasing exponentially, exhibiting a 250%
growth to $14 billion last year. Mobile payments are responsible for about 10%
of PayPal's total payment revenues last year, and the company expects it to
hit $20 billion mark by 2013. Sign up for the free report on eBay Inc. at

of its mobile applications. eBay expects Marketplaces mobile commerce revenues
to surpass the $20 million mark in 2013. In 2012, mobile brought over 4.3
million new users to eBay and created $13 billion in mobile commerce sales
volume. This is exceptional considering it is nearly twice the sales volume
from 2011 and higher than the original $10 billion forecast for 2012
