PayPal has been around for decades and, in that time, has cemented itself as one of the most used payment methods available online. In short, it is definitely worth considering using PayPal when deciding on the payment method you want to use to fund your Amazon Slots account.

In this article, our experts look at the background of PayPal, how it works and why you should or should not use it online. Read on as we explore PayPal and gambling at casinos with this popular deposit method.

Where Does PayPal Come From?

PayPal has its roots in Confinity, initially started by Max Levchin and Peter Thiel. Paypal launched in 1998 as a company that created software for handheld devices. Confinity made the switch to digital wallets in 1999 when they released a very early version of PayPal. A year later, they merged with X.com, which Elon Musk originally founded. They then went to list the company and was soon bought by eBay for $1.5 billion, propelling them across the globe, becoming a payment processor for retailers. By 2015, PayPal parted ways with eBay and struck out on its own; the rest was history.
