n November 2009, PayPal opened its global payments platform to third-party developers, ushering in a new generation of innovative payments. PayPal X is the world’s first truly open global online payment platform – giving developers access to its global payment engine built over the last decade with more than 87 million active PayPal accounts available in 190 markets and 24 currencies.
The PayPal X Developer Network puts developers in the driver’s seat, providing the resources and the tools needed to change the future of payments – from mobile apps to web apps and social networks. Developers can now monetize their ideas and tap into the $30 trillion global payments opportunity – the next wave of payments innovation is now in their hands.
