PayPal CEO: Venmo users are ‘clamoring’ to do more than just send money

Thursday 09:55 GMT

PayPal Holdings Inc. gave users a small window into its Venmo user numbers Wednesday, as the company steps up its efforts to make money from the peer-to-peer platform.

Venmo customers have the ability to use their accounts for e-commerce purchases, via dedicated Venmo buttons on certain sites as well as “smart” buttons that detect whether a shopper is a Venmo user. These smart buttons are driving conversion in other ways, according to Schulman, as they can be rendered into buttons for local wallets, such as iDEAL in the Netherlands, to show international users more familiar payment options.

Thursday 00:34 GMT

Mexico has returned 15,000 migrants in the past 30 days, a senior government official said on Tuesday, pointing to an uptick in deportations in the face of pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump to stem the flow of people north.

The administration of Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has stepped up migrant detentions and tightened access to humanitarian visas, slowing the flow of caravans north and leaving hundreds of people stuck in the south.
