PostSubject: PayPal claims 15m UK users   Mon 17 Mar - 15:42

Nail down your security priorities. Ask the experts and your peers at The Register Security Debate, April 17, 2008 PayPal now has 15m accounts in the UK - a third of the adult population and more than half of active internet shoppers.

Figures from Datamonitor estimate there are 24.9m online shoppers in the UK, spending an average of 600 each a year.

UK chief executive Geoff Iddison told the Reg: "We are growing faster than ecommerce in the UK. And these are not just user numbers but accounts connected to a specific bank account."

The online payment system can take and make payments in 103 markets and in seventeen currencies. Worldwide, PayPal made revenues of $350m by making transactions worth some $9.1bn.

It is going after more merchant accounts and also wants to get a slice of the 440m sent by UK residents to families abroad.

The company, bought by eBay in 2002 for $1.5bn, has 123m account holders worldwide.
