    PayPal revenue: 5.8 bil.

    eBay revenue: 16.05 bil.

    Makes sense.

    Having separate company makes sense because everyone can do their job right and they don't interfere with each other!

      I hope no. It's already high, starts at 4.4 and never ends. Also the conversion rates while receiving money are low and they are high while sending cash.

        This, of course, depends on :
        1. what country your Paypal account is in, and
        2. whether you are receiving monies from an international source.

        U.S. Merchants pay 2.9% + $.30 on domestic transactions (or less, as your transaction volume increases) and for international transactions, they pay a 3.9% transaction fee plus a fixed fee based on currency received.

        note (for U.S. merchants) - if your volume exceeds $100,000 per month, you can call Paypal to negotiate.

    Sell-side rings the register on eBay • 8:03 AM
    Stephen Alpher, SA News Editor
    Following yesterday's 7.5% gain in eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) amid the PayPal spinoff announcement, Jefferies, JPMorgan, JMP Securities, and Wedbush all pull their Buy (or Buy equivalent) ratings on the stock.
    "We do not see benefits to the PayPal business from the spin-off and expect some profit leakage to eBay, as well as dis-synergies," says Wedbush's Gil Luria. "Given the more favorable structure to BABA vis-à-vis Alipay, we would expect a commercial agreement between PayPal and eBay to be somewhat less favorable to PayPal compared to the current presentation of the profit split."

    I think this separation would be good for both companies. PayPal has been loosing ground for a while now with many flaws in their systems to their competitors, They need to have better plan than relying on eBay.

    For eBay, I hope PayPal will not always be their gateway, it will help them raise their revenue partnering with various payment gateways.
