According to a new survey conducted by Cardbeat and Auriemma Consulting Group (ACG), more than three-quarters (76%) of American consumers have an active PayPal account. This percentage rose up sharply from 55% in their 2008 survey.
Still, PayPal accounts for less than 10% of total online sales volume in 2010. The seemingly inexorable growth of online e-commerce websites and trade drives more and more dollars to the payment service. Final volume counts still await the end of the holiday shopping season. PayPal reported a 27% increase over 2009 in Black Friday online payments.
