In a blog post titled,' Dan Schulman, President and CEO, PayPal commended Paypal's global employees saying that this is a testament to the tireless work that they have done on behalf of their customers to add more and more value to the platform.

"It’s not about the macro numbers, it’s about the individual experiences. The small businesses that support families and fuel communities. The single-parents managing for their families. The college students figuring out their budgets. The non-profits working to serve those in need. The people and families and entrepreneurs who are new to digital finance and turn to us because they need a better way to borrow, to save, to spend, to share. The immigrants working hard to create a better life for their families and using our platform to send money back home." He says on the blog post
