PayPal Holdings, Inc. (PYPL) P/E ratio is noted at 65.20”

PayPal and eBay, two brands that were best friends forever for like 15 years or so, are destined to be platonic besties no longer.

"eBay intends to further improve its customer experience by intermediating payments on its Marketplace platform", the market site said.

At the news, PayPal shares fell by 8.5% to $78.08.

"We believe that we can offer a more seamless experience while giving buyers and sellers more choice for payment and payout options", eBay CEO Devin Wenig told analysts, the Wall Street Journal reported. The firm stands at price to sale ratio of 6.13 that signifies the value placed on each dollar of a firm's sales or incomes; it is most relevant ratio to compare companies in similar sector.

The multinational ecommerce company said that it had partnered with Dutch payments company Adyen for its global payments processing, which would allow users to remain on eBay's website instead of being diverted to a separate PayPal screen.

PayPal said its adjusted earnings per share was expected to fall between $2.24 and $2.30. As a matter of fact, eBay purchased the online payment company for $1.5 billion Dollars in 2002.

eBay shares opened 13.50% higher at $46.06.

Dan Schulman, chief executive of PayPal sought to allay worries over the changing relationship with eBay, the company´s former parent, describing this as "manageable". Analysts expected PayPal to report earnings of 52 cents on sales of $3.63 billion for the quarter ended December 31.

EBay said that it would begin replacing PayPal as it's default payment processing option in some areas of the U.S., in the second half of 2018.

PayPal spokeswoman Amanda Miller said the company will "continue to provide a comprehensive payments solution to eBay through July 2020".

PayPal's new strategic direction has led to partnerships with numerous large financial institutions and big technology companies including Alphabet Inc's (GOOG.O) Google, Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Mastercard Inc (MA.N), Visa Inc (V.N) and JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N).

"The company is committed to working closely with its seller community to address the features and benefits that are most important to them and to ensure a smooth payments transition".

It has signed an agreement with Adyen to become its primary payments processing partner.

The company's Average Earnings Estimate for the Current Fiscal quarter is $0.54, according to consensus of 37 analysts. A strong and prospering eBay is a good thing, but only time will tell.
