As digital payments move from a nice to have to an essential service, we are focused on investing in and nurturing world class technology talent to continue to offer products and services that meet the needs of our growing base of consumers and merchants,” said Guru Bhat, a vice president at PayPal India in a statement.

For PayPal, India remains an important market. The company had said that in 2020 it processed $1.4 billion worth of international sales for over 360,000 merchants in India.

Globally, PayPal had reported a revenue of $6.12 billion from the fourth quarter of 2020.
