KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Swedish mobile payments platform iZettle has been acquired by PayPal in a deal worth $2.2bn.

"When we think about the combinations and capabilities of PayPal and iZettle", Schulman added, they "set us apart from anyone else".

iZettle, best known for offering small payment machines to small merchants, ranks among the rivals of Square, founded by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

The acquisition, despite the amount being made, can help PayPal very much, since the company would be able to expand its access to countries in Europe as well as Latin American countries.

Dan Schulman said in the statement, "iZettle and PayPal are a strong strategic fit, with a shared mission, values, and culture - and complementary product offerings and geographies".
