- SWOT Analysis. (26th March, 2014)

Growing number of mobile shoppers
(The growing number of mobile shoppers represents a huge growth opportunity for PayPal as its one of the few payment systems that meets the requirements for convenient shopping and payment processing on the go.)
Become a retailer.

Increase services portfolio through acquisition.
(The company has successfully acquired many companies to extend its services offering and should continue adding new services through mergers and acquisitions.)
Open more online stores in other countries.
(To sustain current growth levels, eBay could open its online marketplaces in other large and growing economies in Asia and Europe.)
Changing lifestyles
. (People are using the internet more and more to pay bills, talk to family, and shop. eBay can use this opportunity for continued market penetration and expansion.)

(Threat of fraud and illegal actions in online shopping)
Increasing Number of Online Trading Sites
( eBay already has many competitors surrounding them including Amazon.com, uBid, and ePier which makes it harder to encompass a competitive edge in the market)
Rapid Growth of Amazon.com

Increasing Number of Online Stores
(Competition with online retailers such as JC Penny, Target, etc)
1/3rd of Americans already registered on the website.
(United States is eBay’s main customer. Poses a threat to their continued rapid growth universally because they will start to run out of customers to join their site)
