In 2017, PayPal recorded annual payment volume of over 451 billion U.S. dollars with the segment for cross-border transactions accounting for almost a fifth its payment volume. With a net income that amounted to around 1.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2017, the company’s annual revenue for that same year stood at about 13.1 billion U.S. dollars. The vast majority of the company's revenue is generated from transaction fees across all its various payment products as well as from other value-added services such as interests and fees earned from credit loans, subscription fees, and partnerships. Mobile payment options are also available using PayPal’s online mobile app. The company’s annual mobile payment volume amounted to 155 billion U.S. dollars in 2017. PayPal currently ranks as one of the most popular mobile billing options in the U.S. and, according to a 2016 survey, is by far the most popular mobile wallet service used by U.S. consumers.
PayPal has been predicted to continue to be a major growth driver in the mobile payment industry and, as at the third quarter of 2018, the company possessed a total of more than 254 million active registered user accounts.
