“PayPal has been offering cross-border payments in India for close to a decade enabling SMEs and freelancers to leverage the global opportunity,” the company said.

“We will be targeting the Global Indian and have partnered with merchants catering to this segment giving them a truly global seamless payments experience.

“India is transitioning away from our biggest competitor – cash – and our digital platform and technology has immense scope to enable this at scale. For us, the marathon has just begun,” Anupam Pahuja, Country Manager and Managing Director, PayPal India was quoted as saying in the statement.

“India’s digital payments journey is on a high growth trajectory and we are proud to be a part of it.
