PayPal stocks lost 64% in 2022 amid general market correction. However, the service has strong fundamentals as it is the most popular tool for online transactions in the United States. Revenues rose significantly after lockdowns were set in the U.S. The Q3 2022 revenues rose by 11% year-on-year to $6.85 billion, while the number of transactions was up by 9% YoY to $337 billion. The company generated $1.788 billion of free cash flow, up by 37% YoY. All these achievements were made during the time of great uncertainties.

PayPal, which has Google Pay and Apple Pay as its peers, reacted negatively  to the emergence of Early Warning Services, a fintech company that announced the launch of its own digital wallet to get its share of online payments. This service is supported by Wells Fargo, the Bank of America, JPMorgan, and some other American financial giants, which means a real threat for PayPal has been created, despite its solid market positions now.
