Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]
Overview and Summary of Significant Accounting PoliciesOVERVIEW AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES OVERVIEW AND ORGANIZATION PayPal Holdings, Inc. (“PayPal,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) was incorporated in Delaware in January 2015 and is a leading technology platform and digital payments company that enables digital and mobile payments on behalf of merchants and consumers worldwide. PayPal is committed to democratizing financial services to improve the financial health of individuals and to increase economic opportunity for entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes around the world. Our goal is to enable our merchants and consumers to manage and move their money anywhere in the world, anytime, on any platform, and using any device when sending payments or getting paid. We also facilitate person-to-person payments through our PayPal, Venmo, and Xoom products and services and simplify and personalize shopping experiences for our consumers through our Honey Platform. Our combined payment solutions, including our core PayPal, PayPal Credit, Braintree, Venmo, Xoom, Zettle, and Hyperwallet products and services, comprise our proprietary Payments Platform. We operate globally and in a rapidly evolving regulatory environment characterized by a heightened focus by regulators globally on all aspects of the payments industry, including countering terrorist financing, anti-money laundering, privacy, cybersecurity, and consumer protection. The laws and regulations applicable to us, including those enacted prior to the advent of digital and mobile payments, are continuing to evolve through legislative and regulatory action and judicial interpretation. New or changing laws and regulations, including the changes to their interpretation and implementation, as well as increased penalties and enforcement actions related to non-compliance, could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations, and financial condition. We monitor these areas closely and are focused on designing compliant solutions for our customers. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation The condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of PayPal and our wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The noncontrolling interest reported was a component of equity on our condensed consolidated balance sheets and represented the equity interests not owned by PayPal and was recorded for consolidated entities we controlled and of which we owned less than 100%. Noncontrolling interest was not presented separately on our condensed consolidated statements of income as the amount was de minimis. Investments in entities where we have the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control, over the investee are accounted for using the equity method of accounting. For such investments, our share of the investee’s results of operations is included in other income (expense), net on our condensed consolidated statements of income and our investment balance is included in long-term investments on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Investments in entities where we do not have the ability to exercise significant influence over the investee are accounted for at fair value or cost minus impairment, if any, adjusted for changes resulting from observable price changes, which are included in other income (expense), net on our condensed consolidated statements of income. Our investment balance is included in long-term investments on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. We determine at the inception of each investment, and re-evaluate if certain events occur, whether an entity in which we have made an investment is considered a variable interest entity (“VIE”). If we determine an investment is a VIE, we then assess if we are the primary beneficiary, which would require consolidation. As of June 30, 2021, no VIEs qualified for consolidation as the structures of these entities do not provide us with the ability to direct activities that would significantly impact their economic performance. The carrying value of our investments that are VIEs is included as non-marketable equity securities applying the equity method of accounting in long-term investments on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Our maximum exposure to loss, which represents funded commitments and any future funding commitments, was $144 million and $105 million as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. These condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the “2020 Form 10-K”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 5, 2021. In the opinion of management, these condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, which are necessary for a fair statement of the condensed consolidated financial statements for all interim periods presented. Certain amounts for prior years have been reclassified to conform to the financial statement presentation as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. Reclassifications Beginning with the fourth quarter of 2020, we reclassified certain cash flows related to customer balances from cash flows from operating activities to cash flows from investing activities and cash flows from financing activities within the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These changes had no impact on our previously reported consolidated net income, financial position, net change in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash, or total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash as reported on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. The current period presentation classifies all changes in funds receivable and customer accounts and funds payable and amounts due to customers consistently on our condensed consolidated statement of cash flows as cash flows from investing activities and cash flows from financing activities, respectively, regardless of which product the cash flows relate to on our Payments Platform. The current period presentation provides a more meaningful representation of the cash flows related to the movement of customer funds due to the restrictions on and use of those funds. The following table presents the effects of the changes on the presentation of these cash flows to the previously reported condensed consolidated statements of cash flows: Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 (In millions) As Previously Reported (1) Adjustments Reclassified Net cash provided by (used in): Operating activities (2) $ 3,887 $ (694) $ 3,193 Investing activities (3) (10,073) (11) (10,084) Financing activities (4) 8,519 705 9,224 Effect of exchange rates on cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash (72) — (72) Net increase in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash $ 2,261 $ — $ 2,261 (1) As reported in our Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2020 filed with the SEC on July 30, 2020. (2) Financial statement line impacted in operating activities was “Other assets and liabilities.” (3) Financial statement line impacted in investing activities was “Funds receivable.” (4) Financial statement line impacted in financing activities was “Funds payable and amounts due to customers.” Use of estimates The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to provisions for transaction and credit losses, loss contingencies, income taxes, revenue recognition, and the valuation of goodwill and intangible assets. We base our estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions which we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates may change as new events occur, and as additional information surrounding the continued impact of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic becomes available. Actual results could differ from these estimates and any such differences may be material to our financial statements. Recent accounting guidance In 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting . This amended guidance provides transition relief for the accounting impact of reference rate reform. For a limited period, this guidance provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to certain contract modifications, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by a reference rate expected to be discontinued due to reference rate reform. The amended guidance is effective through December 31, 2022. Our exposure to London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) is primarily limited to an insignificant portion of our available-for-sale debt securities and, accordingly, we do not expect reference rate reform to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements. There are other new accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB that we have adopted or will adopt, as applicable. We do not believe any of these accounting pronouncements have had, or will have, a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements or disclosures.

Revenue from Contract with Customer [Abstract]
RevenueREVENUE PayPal enables its customers to send and receive payments. We earn revenue primarily by completing payment transactions for our customers on our Payments Platform and from other value added services. Our revenues are classified into two categories: transaction revenues and revenues from other value added services. DISAGGREGATION OF REVENUE We determine operating segments based on how our chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) manages the business, makes operating decisions around the allocation of resources, and evaluates operating performance. Our CODM is our Chief Executive Officer, who reviews our operating results on a consolidated basis. We operate as one segment and have one reportable segment. Based on the information provided to and reviewed by our CODM, we believe that the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of our revenue and cash flows and how they are affected by economic factors are most appropriately depicted through our primary geographical markets and type of revenue categories (transaction revenues and revenues from other value added services). Revenues recorded within these categories are earned from similar services for which the nature of associated fees and the related revenue recognition models are substantially the same. The following table presents our revenue disaggregated by primary geographical market and category: Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 (In millions) Primary geographical markets United States (“U.S.”) $ 3,272 $ 2,651 $ 6,335 $ 5,120 United Kingdom (“U.K.”) 587 586 1,212 1,064 Other countries (1) 2,379 2,024 4,724 3,695 Total net revenues (2) $ 6,238 $ 5,261 $ 12,271 $ 9,879 Revenue category Transaction revenues $ 5,797 $ 4,945 $ 11,418 $ 9,160 Revenues from other value added services 441 316 853 719 Total net revenues (2) $ 6,238 $ 5,261 $ 12,271 $ 9,879 (1) No single country included in the other countries category generated more than 10% of total revenue. (2) Total net revenues include $62 million and $154 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and $121 million and $401 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, which do not represent revenues recognized in the scope of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from contracts with customers . Such revenues relate to interest, fees, and gains earned on loans and interest receivable, as well as hedging gains or losses, and interest earned on certain assets underlying customer balances. Net revenues are attributed to the country in which the merchant is located, or in the case of a cross-border transaction, may be earned from the country in which the consumer and the merchant respectively reside. Revenues earned from other value added services are typically attributed to the country in which either the customer or partner reside.

Earnings Per Share [Abstract]
Net Income Per ShareNET INCOME PER SHARE Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed by dividing net income for the period by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially dilutive common stock outstanding for the period. The dilutive effect of outstanding equity incentive awards is reflected in diluted net income per share by application of the treasury stock method. The calculation of diluted net income per share excludes all anti-dilutive common shares. The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted net income per share for the periods indicated: Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 (In millions, except per share amounts) Numerator: Net income $ 1,184 $ 1,530 $ 2,281 $ 1,614 Denominator: Weighted average shares of common stock - basic 1,174 1,173 1,174 1,173 Dilutive effect of equity incentive awards 12 11 14 12 Weighted average shares of common stock - diluted 1,186 1,184 1,188 1,185 Net income per share: Basic $ 1.01 $ 1.30 $ 1.94 $ 1.38 Diluted $ 1.00 $ 1.29 $ 1.92 $ 1.36 Common stock equivalents excluded from income per diluted share because their effect would have been anti-dilutive 3 — 2 1

Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]
Business CombinationsBUSINESS COMBINATIONS ACQUISITIONS COMPLETED IN 2021 In the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, we completed three acquisitions accounted for as business combinations. The total purchase price for these acquisitions was $524 million, consisting primarily of cash consideration. The allocation of purchase consideration resulted in approximately $85 million of technology, customer, and marketing related intangible assets with estimated useful lives ranging from one We have included the financial results of the acquired businesses in our condensed consolidated financial statements from the date of each acquisition. Revenues and expenses related to these acquisitions and pro forma results of operations have not been presented for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 because the effects of these acquisitions were not material to our overall operations. ACQUISITION COMPLETED IN 2020 Honey Science Corporation We completed our acquisition of Honey Science Corporation (“Honey”) in January 2020 by acquiring all outstanding shares for total consideration of approximately $4.0 billion, consisting of approximately $3.6 billion in cash and approximately $400 million in assumed restricted stock, restricted stock units, and options, subject to vesting conditions. We believe our acquisition of Honey will enhance our value proposition by allowing us to further simplify and personalize shopping experiences for consumers while driving conversion and increasing consumer engagement and sales for merchants. The following table summarizes the final allocation of the purchase consideration to the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed: (In millions) Goodwill $ 2,962 Customer lists and user base 115 Marketing related 30 Developed technology 572 Total intangibles $ 717 Accounts receivable, net 50 Deferred tax liabilities, net (58) Other net liabilities (36) Total purchase price $ 3,635 The intangible assets acquired consist primarily of customer contracts, trade name/trademarks, and developed technology with estimated useful lives of three years. The excess of the purchase consideration over the fair value of net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired was recorded as goodwill and is attributable to the workforce of Honey and the synergies expected to arise from the acquisition through continued customer acquisition, cross selling initiatives, and product enhancements. Goodwill was not deductible for income tax purposes. In connection with the acquisition, we assumed restricted stock, restricted stock units, and options with an approximate grant date fair value of $400 million, which represents post-business combination expense. The equity granted is a combination of shares issued to certain former Honey employees subject to a holdback arrangement and assumed Honey employee grants, which vest over a period of up to four years and are subject to continued employment.

Leases [Abstract]
LeasesLEASES PayPal enters into various leases, which are primarily real estate operating leases. We use these properties for executive and administrative offices, data centers, product development offices, and customer service and operations centers. While a majority of our lease agreements do not contain an explicit interest rate, we do have some lease agreements that are subject to changes based on the Consumer Price Index or another referenced index. In the event of changes to the relevant index, lease liabilities are not remeasured and instead are treated as variable lease payments and recognized in the period in which the obligation for those payments is incurred. The short-term lease exemption has been adopted for all leases with a duration of less than 12 months. PayPal’s lease portfolio contains a small number of subleases. A sublease situation can arise when currently leased real estate space is available and is surplus to operational requirements. As of June 30, 2021, we had no finance leases. The components of lease expense were as follows: Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 (In millions) Lease expense Operating lease expense $ 42 $ 42 $ 87 $ 80 Sublease income (2) (1) (4) (2) Lease expense, net $ 40 $ 41 $ 83 $ 78 Supplemental cash flow information related to leases was as follows: Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 (In millions) Cash paid for amounts included in the measurement of lease liabilities Operating cash flows from operating leases $ 42 $ 38 $ 84 $ 73 Right-of-use (“ROU”) assets obtained in exchange for operating lease liabilities $ 10 $ 2 $ 11 $ 246 Supplemental balance sheet information related to leases was as follows: June 30, December 31, (In millions, except weighted-average figures) Operating lease ROU assets $ 638 $ 707 Other current operating lease liabilities 137 144 Operating lease liabilities 608 642 Total operating lease liabilities $ 745 $ 786 Weighted-average remaining lease term — operating leases 6.6 years 6.9 years Weighted-average discount rate — operating leases 3 % 3 % Future minimum lease payments for our operating leases as of June 30, 2021 were as follows: Operating Leases Fiscal years: (In millions) Remaining 2021 $ 85 2022 139 2023 126 2024 110 2025 94 Thereafter 272 Total $ 826 Less: present value discount (81) Lease liability $ 745 Operating lease amounts include minimum lease payments under our non-cancelable operating leases primarily for office and data center facilities. The amounts presented are consistent with contractual terms and are not expected to differ significantly from actual results under our existing leases. In the first quarter of 2020, we entered into a sale-leaseback arrangement as the seller-lessee for a data center as the buyer-lessor obtained control of the facility. We sold the data center and simultaneously entered into an operating lease agreement with the purchaser for the right to use the facility for eight years. The Company received proceeds of approximately $119 million, net of selling costs, which resulted in a de minimis net gain on the sale transaction. In the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, we incurred asset impairment charges of $26 million and $21 million, respectively, within restructuring and other charges on our condensed consolidated statements of income. The impairments included a reduction to our ROU lease assets in the amount of $21 million and $17 million, respectively, which were attributed to certain leased space we are no longer utilizing for our core business operations. A portion of the leased space associated with the impairment charges recorded in the six months ended June 30, 2021 is being subleased. As of June 30, 2021, we have additional operating leases, primarily for real estate and data centers, with minimum lease payments aggregating to $31 million and lease terms ranging from three

As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had non-marketable equity securities of $48 million and $10 million, respectively, where we have the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control, over the investee. We account for these equity securities using the equity method of accounting.

Our marketable equity securities are valued using quoted prices for identical assets in active markets (Level 1). All other financial assets and liabilities are valued using quoted prices for identical instruments in less active markets, readily available pricing sources for comparable instruments, or models using market observable inputs (Level 2). A majority of our derivative instruments are valued using pricing models that take into account the contract terms as well as multiple inputs where applicable, such as currency rates, interest rate yield curves, option volatility, and equity prices. Our derivative instruments are primarily short-term in nature, generally one month to one year in duration. Certain foreign currency contracts designated as cash flow hedges may have a duration of up to 18 months. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we did not have any assets or liabilities requiring measurement at fair value without observable market values that would require a high level of judgment to determine fair value (Level 3). We elect to account for available-for-sale debt securities denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of our subsidiaries under the fair value option. Election of the fair value option allows us to recognize any gains and losses from fair value changes on such investments in other income (expense), net on the condensed consolidated statements of income to significantly reduce the accounting asymmetry that would otherwise arise when recognizing the corresponding foreign exchange gains and losses relating to customer liabilities. The following table summarizes the estimated fair value of our available-for-sale debt securities under the fair value option as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020: June 30, 2021 December 31, 2020 (In millions) Funds receivable and customer accounts $ 2,366 $ 2,914 Short-term investments $ 674 $ — The following table summarizes the gains (losses) from fair value changes recognized in other income (expense), net related to the available-for-sale debt securities under the fair value option for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020: Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 (In millions) Funds receivable and customer accounts $ 27 $ 17 $ (40) $ (3) Short-term investments $ 4 $ (6) $ (7) $ (24) FINANCIAL ASSETS MEASURED AND RECORDED AT FAIR VALUE ON A NON-RECURRING BASIS The following tables summarize our financial assets and liabilities held as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 for which a non-recurring fair value measurement was recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and the year ended December 31, 2020, respectively: June 30, 2021 Significant Other Observable Inputs (Level 2) (In millions) Non-marketable equity investments measured using the Measurement Alternative (1) $ 443 $ 443 Other assets (2) 86 $ 86 Total $ 529 $ 529 (1) Excludes non-marketable equity investments of $566 million accounted for under the Measurement Alternative for which no observable price changes occurred during the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities Disclosure [Abstract]
Derivative InstrumentsDERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS SUMMARY OF DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS Our primary objective in holding derivatives is to reduce the volatility of earnings and cash flows associated with changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Our derivatives expose us to credit risk to the extent that our counterparties may be unable to meet the terms of the arrangement. We seek to mitigate such risk by limiting our counterparties to, and by spreading the risk across, major financial institutions and by entering into collateral security arrangements. In addition, the potential risk of loss with any one counterparty resulting from this type of credit risk is monitored on an ongoing basis. We do not use any derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes. Cash flow hedges We have significant international revenues and costs denominated in foreign currencies, which subjects us to foreign currency risk. We have a foreign currency exposure management program in which we designate certain foreign currency exchange contracts, generally with maturities of 18 months or less, to reduce the volatility of cash flows primarily related to forecasted revenues denominated in foreign currencies. The objective of the foreign currency exchange contracts is to help mitigate the risk that the U.S. dollar-equivalent cash flows are adversely affected by changes in the applicable U.S. dollar/foreign currency exchange rate. These derivative instruments are designated as cash flow hedges and accordingly, the derivative’s gain or loss is initially reported as a component of AOCI and subsequently reclassified into revenue in the same period the forecasted transaction affects earnings. We evaluate the effectiveness of our foreign currency exchange contracts on a quarterly basis by comparing the critical terms of the derivative instruments with the critical terms of the forecasted cash flows of the hedged item; if the critical terms are the same, we conclude the hedge will be perfectly effective. We do not exclude any component of the changes in fair value of the derivative instruments from the assessment of hedge effectiveness. We report cash flows arising from derivative instruments consistent with the classification of cash flows from the underlying hedged items that these derivatives are hedging. Accordingly, the cash flows associated with derivatives designated as cash flow hedges are classified in cash flows from operating activities on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. As of June 30, 2021, we estimated that $107 million of net derivative losses related to our cash flow hedges included in AOCI are expected to be reclassified into earnings within the next 12 months. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, we did not discontinue any cash flow hedges because it was probable that the original forecasted transaction would not occur and as such, did not reclassify any gains or losses to earnings prior to the occurrence of the hedged transaction. If we elect to discontinue our cash flow hedges and it is probable that the original forecasted transaction will occur, we continue to report the derivative’s gain or loss in AOCI until the forecasted transaction affects earnings, at which point we also reclassify it into earnings. Gains and losses on derivatives held after we discontinue our cash flow hedges and gains and losses on derivative instruments that are not designated as cash flow hedges are recorded in the same financial statement line item to which the derivative relates. Net investment hedge We used a forward foreign currency exchange contract, which matured in 2020, to reduce the foreign currency exchange risk related to our investment in a foreign subsidiary. This derivative was designated as a net investment hedge and accordingly, the derivative’s gain and loss was recorded in AOCI as part of foreign currency translation. The accumulated gains and losses associated with this instrument will remain in AOCI until the foreign subsidiary is sold or substantially liquidated, at which point they will be reclassified into earnings. The cash flow associated with the derivative designated as a net investment hedge is classified in cash flows from investing activities on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, we recognized $16 million in unrealized loss and $55 million in unrealized gain, respectively, on the foreign currency exchange contract designated as a net investment hedge within the foreign currency translation section of other comprehensive income. As of June 30, 2021, we did not have a net investment hedge. We have not reclassified any gains or losses related to the net investment hedge from AOCI into earnings during any of the periods presented. Foreign currency exchange contracts not designated as hedging instruments We have a foreign currency exposure management program in which we use foreign currency exchange contracts to offset the foreign currency exchange risk of our assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of our subsidiaries. These contracts are not designated as hedging instruments and reduce, but do not entirely eliminate, the impact of foreign currency exchange rate movements on our assets and liabilities. The gains and losses due to remeasurement of certain foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities are recorded in other income (expense), net, which are offset by the gains and losses on these foreign currency exchange contracts. The cash flows associated with our non-designated derivatives used to hedge foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities are classified in cash flows from operating activities on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. FAIR VALUE OF DERIVATIVE CONTRACTS The fair value of our outstanding derivative instruments as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was as follows: Balance Sheet Location June 30, December 31, (In millions) Derivative Assets: Foreign currency exchange contracts designated as hedging instruments Other current assets $ 37 $ — Foreign currency exchange contracts designated as hedging instruments Other assets (non-current) 15 — Foreign currency exchange contracts not designated as hedging instruments Other current assets 42 42 Total derivative assets $ 94 $ 42 Derivative Liabilities: Foreign currency exchange contracts designated as hedging instruments Other current liabilities $ 144 $ 287 Foreign currency exchange contracts designated as hedging instruments Other long-term liabilities — 35 Foreign currency exchange contracts not designated as hedging instruments Other current liabilities 66 88 Total derivative liabilities $ 210 $ 410 MASTER NETTING AGREEMENTS - RIGHTS OF SET-OFF Under master netting agreements with respective counterparties to our foreign currency exchange contracts, subject to applicable requirements, we are allowed to net settle transactions of the same type with a single net amount payable by one party to the other. However, we have elected to present the derivative assets and derivative liabilities on a gross basis on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Rights of set-off associated with our foreign currency exchange contracts represented a potential offset to both assets and liabilities of $63 million as of June 30, 2021 and $34 million as of December 31, 2020. We have entered into collateral security arrangements that provide for collateral to be received or posted when the net fair value of certain financial instruments fluctuates from contractually established thresholds. The following table provides the collateral exchanged: June 30, December 31, (In millions) Cash collateral posted (1) $ 135 $ 340 Cash collateral received (2) $ 11 $ 1 (1) Right to reclaim cash collateral related to our derivative liabilities recognized in other current assets on our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Receivables [Abstract]
Loans and Interest ReceivableLOANS AND INTEREST RECEIVABLE CONSUMER RECEIVABLES We offer revolving and installment credit products to consumers at checkout. The majority of the installment loans allow consumers to pay for a product over periods of 12 months or less. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the outstanding balance of consumer receivables, which consisted of revolving and installment loans and interest receivable, was $2.5 billion and $2.2 billion, respectively. We closely monitor the credit quality of our consumer receivables to evaluate and manage our related exposure to credit risk. Credit risk management begins with initial underwriting and continues through to full repayment of a loan. To assess a consumer who requests a loan, we use, among other indicators, internally developed risk models using detailed information from external sources, such as credit bureaus where available, and internal historical experience, including the consumer’s prior repayment history with our credit products where available. We use delinquency status and trends to assist in making new and ongoing credit decisions, to adjust our models, to plan our collection practices and strategies, and in determining our allowance for consumer loans and interest receivable. Consumer receivables delinquency and allowance The following table presents the delinquency status of consumer loans and interest receivable at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. Since the majority of our consumer loans are revolving in nature, they are disclosed in the aggregate and not by year of origination. The amounts are based on the number of days past the billing date for revolving loans or contractual repayment date for installment loans. The “current” category represents balances that are within 29 days of the billing date or contractual repayment date, as applicable.

(2) The recoveries for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were primarily related to fully charged-off U.S. consumer credit receivables not subject to the sale to Synchrony Bank. (3) Includes amounts related to foreign currency remeasurement. The benefit for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to improvements in the credit quality of the consumer portfolio and current and projected macroeconomic conditions. This was partially offset by provisions for originations in the portfolio and the impact of qualitative adjustments to account for limitations in our current expected credit loss models, due to a high degree of uncertainty around the financial health of our consumer borrowers and continued volatility with respect to both the projected and actual macroeconomic conditions. The provision for current expected credit losses relating to our consumer loans receivable portfolio is recognized in transaction and credit losses on our condensed consolidated statements of income. The provision for interest receivable for interest earned on our consumer loans receivable portfolio is recognized in revenues from other value added services as a reduction to revenue. Loans receivable continue to accrue interest until they are charged off. We charge off consumer receivable balances in the month in which a customer’s balance becomes 180 days past the billing date or contractual repayment date. Bankrupt accounts are charged off within 60 days after receipt of notification of bankruptcy. Charge-offs that are recovered are recorded as a reduction to our allowance for loans and interest receivable. MERCHANT RECEIVABLES We offer access to credit products for certain small and medium-sized merchants through our PayPal Working Capital (“PPWC”) and PayPal Business Loan (“PPBL”) products, which we collectively refer to as our merchant lending offerings. We purchase receivables related to credit extended to U.S. merchants by an independent chartered financial institution and are responsible for servicing functions related to that portfolio. During the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, we purchased approximately $780 million and $1.4 billion in credit receivables, respectively. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the total outstanding balance in our pool of merchant loans, advances, and interest and fees receivable was $1.3 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively, net of the participation interest sold to an independent chartered financial institution of $54 million and $59 million, respectively. Through our PPWC product, merchants can borrow a certain percentage of their annual payment volume processed by PayPal and are charged a fixed fee for the loan or advance based on the overall credit assessment of the merchant. Loans and advances are repaid through a fixed percentage of the merchant’s future payment volume that PayPal processes. Through our PPBL product, we provide merchants access to short-term business financing for a fixed fee based on an evaluation of the applying business as well as the business owner. PPBL repayments are collected through periodic payments until the balance has been satisfied. The interest or fee is fixed at the time the loan or advance is extended and is recognized as deferred revenue included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. The fixed interest or fee is amortized into revenues from other value added services based on the amount repaid over the repayment period. We estimate the repayment period for PPWC based on the merchant’s payment processing history with PayPal, where available. For PPWC, there is a general requirement that at least 10% of the original amount of the loan or advance plus the fixed fee must be repaid every 90 days. We calculate the repayment rate of the merchant’s future payment volume so that repayment of the loan or advance and fixed fee is expected to generally occur within 9 to 12 months from the date of the loan or advance. On a monthly basis, we recalculate the repayment period based on the repayment activity on the receivable. As such, actual repayment periods are dependent on actual merchant payment processing volumes. For PPBL, we receive fixed periodic payments over the contractual term of the loan, which generally ranges from 3 to 12 months. We actively monitor receivables with repayment periods greater than the original expected or contractual repayment period, as well as the credit quality of our merchant loans and advances that we extend or purchase so that we can evaluate, quantify, and manage our credit risk exposure. To assess a merchant seeking a loan or advance, we use, among other indicators, risk models developed internally which utilize information obtained from multiple internal and external data sources to predict the likelihood of timely and satisfactory repayment by the merchant of the loan or advance amount and the related interest or fee. Primary drivers of the models include the merchant’s annual payment volume, payment processing history with PayPal, prior repayment history with PayPal’s credit products where available, information sourced from consumer and business credit bureau reports, and other information obtained during the application process. We use delinquency status and trends to assist in making (or, in the U.S., to assist the independent chartered financial institution in making) ongoing credit decisions, to adjust our internal models, to plan our collection strategies, and in determining our allowance for these loans and advances. Merchant receivables delinquency and allowance The following tables present the delinquency status of the principal amount of merchant loans, advances, and interest and fees receivable by year of origination. The amounts are based on the number of days past the expected or contractual repayment date for amounts outstanding.

This was partially offset by provisions for originations during the period and the impact of qualitative adjustments to account for varying degrees of expected merchant performance in the current environment and in future periods, including uncertainty around the effectiveness of loan modification programs made available to merchants, as described further below, and continued volatility with respect to macroeconomic conditions. For merchant loans and advances, the determination of delinquency is based on the current expected or contractual repayment period of the loan or advance and fixed interest or fee payment as compared to the original expected or contractual repayment period. We charge off the receivables outstanding under our PPBL product when the repayments are 180 days past the contractual repayment date. We charge off the receivables outstanding under our PPWC product when the repayments are 180 days past our expectation of repayments and the merchant has not made a payment in the last 60 days, or when the repayments are 360 days past due regardless of whether the merchant has made a payment within the last 60 days. Bankrupt accounts are charged off within 60 days of receiving notification of bankruptcy. The provision for credit losses on merchant loans and advances is recognized in transaction and credit losses, and the provision for interest and fees receivable is recognized as a reduction of deferred revenue included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Charge-offs that are recovered are recorded as a reduction to our allowance for loans and interest receivable. Troubled debt restructurings (“TDRs”) In instances where a merchant is able to demonstrate that it is experiencing financial difficulty, there may be a modification of the loans or advances and the related interest or fee receivable for which it is probable that, without modification, we will be unable to collect all amounts due. These modifications are intended to provide merchants with financial relief, and help enable us to mitigate losses. These modifications include an increase in term by approximately 1 to 5.5 years while moving the delinquency status to current. The fee on certain of these loans or advances remains unchanged over the extended term. Alternatively, certain loans and advances have been modified to replace the initial fixed fee structure at the time the loan or advance was extended with a fixed annual percentage rate applied over the amended remaining term, which will continue to accrue interest at the fixed rate until the earlier of maturity or charge-off. These modifications had a de minimis impact on our condensed consolidated statements of income in the six months ended June 30, 2021. Allowances for TDRs are assessed separately from other loans within our portfolio and are determined by estimating current expected credit losses utilizing the modified term and interest rate assumptions. Historical loss estimates are utilized in addition to macroeconomic assumptions to determine expected credit loss rates. Further, we include qualitative adjustments that incorporate incremental information not captured in the quantitative estimates of our current expected credit losses. The following table shows the merchant loans and interest receivables which have been modified as TDRs in the three and six months ended June 30, 2021: Three Months Ended June 30, 2021 Number of Accounts Outstanding Balances (1) (in millions) Weighted Average Payment Term Extensions Loans and interest receivable 1 8 36 Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 Number of Accounts Outstanding Balances (1) (in millions) Weighted Average Payment Term Extensions Loans and interest receivable 3 $ 39 36 (1) Balances are as of modification date. A merchant is considered in payment default after a modification when the merchant’s payment becomes 60 days past their expected or contractual repayment date. For loans that have defaulted after being modified, the increased estimate of current expected credit loss is factored into overall expected credit losses. In the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the amount of merchant loans and interest receivables classified as TDRs that have subsequently defaulted on payments was de minimis.

The interest expense recorded for the Notes, including amortization of the debt discount and debt issuance costs, was $56 million and $112 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. The interest expense recorded for the Notes, including amortization of the debt discount and debt issuance costs, was $45 million and $78 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. Other available facilities We maintain uncommitted credit facilities in various regions throughout the world, which had a borrowing capacity of approximately $80 million and $30 million in the aggregate, as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. This available credit includes facilities where we can withdraw and utilize the funds at our discretion for general corporate purposes. Interest rate terms for these facilities vary by region and reflect prevailing market rates for companies with strong credit ratings. As of June 30, 2021, the majority of the borrowing capacity under these credit facilities was available, subject to customary conditions to borrowing. FUTURE PRINCIPAL PAYMENTS As of June 30, 2021, the future principal payments associated with our long term debt were as follows (in millions): Remaining 2021 $ — 2022 1,000 2023 1,000 2024 1,250 2025 1,000 Thereafter 4,750 Total $ 9,000 Other than as provided above, there are no significant changes to the information disclosed in our 2020 Form 10-K.

Commitments and Contingencies Disclosure [Abstract]
Commitments and ContingenciesCOMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES COMMITMENTS As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, approximately $3.6 billion and $3.0 billion, respectively, of unused credit was available to PayPal Credit account holders. Substantially all of our PayPal Credit account holders with unused credit are in the U.K. While this amount represents the total unused credit available, we have not experienced, and do not anticipate, that all our PayPal Credit account holders will access their entire available credit at any given point in time. In addition, the individual lines of credit that make up this unused credit are subject to periodic review and termination based on, among other things, account usage and customer creditworthiness. LITIGATION AND REGULATORY MATTERS Overview We are involved in legal and regulatory proceedings on an ongoing basis. Many of these proceedings are in early stages and may seek an indeterminate amount of damages. If we believe that a loss arising from such matters is probable and can be reasonably estimated, we accrue the estimated liability in our financial statements at that time. If only a range of estimated losses can be determined, we accrue an amount within the range that, in our judgment, reflects the most likely outcome; if none of the estimates within that range is a better estimate than any other amount, we accrue the low end of the range. For those proceedings in which an unfavorable outcome is reasonably possible but not probable, we have disclosed an estimate of the reasonably possible loss or range of losses or we have concluded that an estimate of the reasonably possible loss or range of losses arising directly from the proceeding (i.e., monetary damages or amounts paid in judgment or settlement) are not material. If we cannot estimate the probable or reasonably possible loss or range of losses arising from a legal proceeding, we have disclosed that fact. In assessing the materiality of a legal proceeding, we evaluate, among other factors, the amount of monetary damages claimed, as well as the potential impact of non-monetary remedies sought by plaintiffs (e.g., injunctive relief) that may require us to change our business practices in a manner that could have a material adverse impact on our business. With respect to the matters disclosed in this Note 13, we are unable to estimate the possible loss or range of losses that could potentially result from the application of such non-monetary remedies. Amounts accrued for legal and regulatory proceedings for which we believe a loss is probable and reasonably estimable were not material as of June 30, 2021. Except as otherwise noted for the proceedings described in this Note 13, we have concluded, based on currently available information, that reasonably possible losses arising directly from the proceedings (i.e., monetary damages or amounts paid in judgment or settlement) in excess of our recorded accruals are also not material. Determining legal reserves or possible losses from such matters involves judgment and may not reflect the full range of uncertainties and unpredictable outcomes. We may be exposed to losses in excess of the amount recorded, and such amounts could be material. If any of our estimates and assumptions change or prove to have been incorrect, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. Regulatory proceedings We are required to comply with U.S. economic and trade sanctions administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”). In March 2015, we reached a settlement with OFAC regarding possible violations arising from our sanctions compliance practices between 2009 and 2013, prior to the implementation of our real-time transaction scanning program. Subsequently, we have self-reported additional transactions that were inadvertently processed but subsequently identified as possible violations, and we have received new subpoenas from OFAC seeking additional information about certain of these transactions. Such self-reported transactions could result in claims or actions against us, including litigation, injunctions, damage awards, fines or penalties, or require us to change our business practices in a manner that could result in a material loss, require significant management time, result in the diversion of significant operational resources, or otherwise harm our business. PayPal Australia Pty Limited (“PPAU”) self-reported a potential violation to the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (“AUSTRAC”) on May 22, 2019. This self-reported matter relates to PPAU incorrectly filing required international funds transfer instructions over a period of time under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (“AML/CTF Act”). On September 23, 2019, PPAU received a notice from AUSTRAC requiring that PPAU appoint an external auditor (a partner of a firm which is not our independent auditor) to review certain aspects of PPAU’s compliance with its obligations under the AML/CTF Act. The external auditor was appointed on November 1, 2019. As required under the terms of AUSTRAC’s notice, as amended, PPAU issued to AUSTRAC the external auditor’s interim reports on December 31, 2019, March 13, 2020, May 6, 2020 and July 7, 2020 and a final report on August 31, 2020. AUSTRAC has notified PPAU that its enforcement team is investigating the matters reported upon by the external auditor in its August 31, 2020 final report. PPAU is continuing to cooperate with AUSTRAC in all respects, including remediation activities, ongoing regular engagement with AUSTRAC, responding to requests for information and documents, and reporting to AUSTRAC of international funds transfer instructions based on the operation of the AML/CTF Act. We cannot estimate the potential impact, if any, on our business or financial statements at this time. In the event an adverse outcome arises from any associated enforcement, proceeding, or other further matter initiated by AUSTRAC, this could result in enforceable undertakings, injunctions, damage awards, fines or penalties, or require us to change our business practices in a manner that could result in a material loss, require significant management time, result in the diversion of significant operational resources, or otherwise harm our business. We have received Civil Investigative Demands (“CIDs”) from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) related to Venmo’s unauthorized funds transfers and collections processes, and related matters. The CIDs request the production of documents and answers to written questions. We are cooperating with the CFPB in connection with these CIDs. We have received a CID from the CFPB related to the marketing and use of PayPal Credit in connection with certain merchants that provide educational services. The CID requests the production of documents, written reports, and answers to written questions. We are cooperating with the CFPB in connection with this CID. We have responded to subpoenas and requests for information received from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Enforcement Division (“SEC”) relating to whether the interchange rates paid to the bank that issues debit cards bearing our licensed brands were consistent with Regulation II of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and to the reporting of marketing fees earned from the Company’s branded card program. We are cooperating with the SEC in connection with this investigation. General matters Other third parties have from time to time claimed, and others may claim in the future, that we have infringed their intellectual property rights. We are subject to patent disputes and expect that we will increasingly be subject to additional patent infringement claims involving various aspects of our business as our products and services continue to expand in scope and complexity. Such claims may be brought directly or indirectly against our companies and/or against our customers (who may be entitled to contractual indemnification under their contracts with us), and we are subject to increased exposure to such claims as a result of our acquisitions, particularly in cases where we are introducing new products or services in connection with such acquisitions. We have in the past been forced to litigate such claims, and we believe that additional lawsuits alleging such claims will be filed against us. Intellectual property claims, whether meritorious or not, are time-consuming and costly to defend and resolve, could require expensive changes in our methods of doing business, or could require us to enter into costly royalty or licensing agreements on unfavorable terms or make substantial payments to settle claims or to satisfy damages awarded by courts. From time to time, we are involved in other disputes or regulatory inquiries that arise in the ordinary course of business, including suits by our customers (individually or as class actions) alleging, among other things, improper disclosure of our prices, rules, or policies, that our practices, prices, rules, policies, or customer/user agreements violate applicable law, or that we have acted unfairly and/or not acted in conformity with such prices, rules, policies, or agreements. In addition to these types of disputes and regulatory inquiries, our operations are also subject to regulatory and/or legal review and/or challenges that may reflect the increasing global regulatory focus to which the payments industry is subject and, when taken as a whole with other regulatory and legislative action, such actions could result in the imposition of costly new compliance burdens on our business and customers and may lead to increased costs and decreased transaction volume and revenue. Further, the number and significance of these disputes and inquiries are increasing as our business has grown and expanded in scale and scope, including the number of active accounts and payments transactions on our platforms, the range and increasing complexity of the products and services that we offer, and our geographical operations. Any claims or regulatory actions against us, whether meritorious or not, could be time consuming, result in costly litigation, settlement payments, damage awards (including statutory damages for certain causes of action in certain jurisdictions), fines, penalties, injunctive relief, or increased costs of doing business through adverse judgment or settlement, require us to change our business practices in expensive ways, require significant amounts of management time, result in the diversion of significant operational resources, or otherwise harm our business. INDEMNIFICATION PROVISIONS Our agreements with eBay governing our separation from eBay provide for specific indemnity and liability obligations for both eBay and us. Disputes between eBay and us have arisen and others may arise in the future, and an adverse outcome in such matters could materially and adversely impact our business, results of operations, and financial condition. In addition, the indemnity rights we have against eBay under the agreements may not be sufficient to protect us, and our indemnity obligations to eBay may be significant. In the ordinary course of business, we include limited indemnification provisions in certain of our agreements with parties with whom we have commercial relationships. Under these contracts, we generally indemnify, hold harmless, and agree to reimburse the indemnified party for losses suffered or incurred by the indemnified party in connection with claims by any third party with respect to our domain names, trademarks, logos, and other branding elements to the extent that such marks are related to the subject agreement. We have provided an indemnity for other types of third-party claims, which are indemnities related primarily to intellectual property rights, confidentiality, willful misconduct, data privacy obligations, and certain breach of contract claims. We have also provided an indemnity to our payments processors in the event of card association fines against the processor arising out of conduct by us or our customers. It is not possible to determine the maximum potential loss under these indemnification provisions due to our limited history of prior indemnification claims and the unique facts and circumstances involved in each particular situation. PayPal has participated in the U.S. Government’s Paycheck Protection Program administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Loans made under this program are funded by an independent chartered financial institution that we partner with. We receive a fee for providing origination services and loan servicing for these loans and retain operational risk related to those activities. We have agreed, under certain circumstances, to indemnify the chartered financial institution in connection with the services provided for loans made under this program. To date, no significant costs have been incurred, either individually or collectively, in connection with our indemnification provisions. OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to have, a current or future material effect on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, or capital resources. PROTECTION PROGRAMS We provide merchants and consumers with protection programs for certain transactions completed on our Payments Platform. These programs are intended to protect both merchants and consumers from loss primarily due to fraud and counterparty performance. Our buyer protection program provides protection to consumers for qualifying purchases by reimbursing the consumer for the full amount of the purchase if a purchased item does not arrive or does not match the seller’s description. Our seller protection programs provide protection to merchants against claims that a transaction was not authorized by the buyer or claims that an item was not received by covering the seller for the full amount of the payment on eligible sales. These protection programs are considered assurance-type warranties for which we estimate and record associated costs in transaction and credit losses during the period the payment transaction is completed. At June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the allowance for transaction losses was $105 million and $144 million, respectively. The allowance for negative customer balances was $261 million and $270 million at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The following table shows changes in the allowance for transaction losses and negative customer balances related to our protection programs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020: Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 (in millions) Beginning balance $ 368 $ 396 $ 414 $ 399 Provision 273 271 554 518 Realized losses (304) (313) (651) (583) Recoveries 29 19 49 39 Ending balance $ 366 $ 373 $ 366 $ 373

Our effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 was 15% and 22%, respectively. The difference between our effective tax rate and the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% in the above periods was primarily the result of foreign income taxed at different rates, discrete tax adjustments including benefits related to stock-based compensation, and for the six months ended June 30, 2020, tax expense related to the intra-group transfer of intellectual property.

Restructuring and Other ChargesRESTRUCTURING AND OTHER CHARGES During the first quarter of 2020, management approved a strategic reduction of the existing global workforce as part of a multiphase process to reorganize our workforce concurrently with the redesign of our operating structure, which spanned multiple quarters. The associated restructuring charges for the three months ended June 30, 2021 were de minimis and for the six months ended June 30, 2021 were $27 million. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the associated restructuring charges were $26 million and $55 million, respectively. We primarily incurred employee severance and benefits costs, as well as other associated consulting costs under the 2020 strategic reduction, substantially all of which have been accrued as of June 30, 2021. The following table summarizes the restructuring reserve activity during the six months ended June 30, 2021: Employee Severance and Benefits and Other Associated Costs (In millions) Accrued liability as of January 1, 2021 $ 55 Charges 27 Payments (61) Accrued liability as of June 30, 2021 $ 21 Additionally, in the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 we incurred asset impairment charges of $26 million and $21 million, respectively, due to the exiting of certain leased properties which resulted in a reduction of certain ROU lease assets and related leasehold improvements.

Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]
Basis of presentationBasis of presentation and principles of consolidation The condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of PayPal and our wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The noncontrolling interest reported was a component of equity on our condensed consolidated balance sheets and represented the equity interests not owned by PayPal and was recorded for consolidated entities we controlled and of which we owned less than 100%. Noncontrolling interest was not presented separately on our condensed consolidated statements of income as the amount was de minimis. Investments in entities where we have the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control, over the investee are accounted for using the equity method of accounting. For such investments, our share of the investee’s results of operations is included in other income (expense), net on our condensed consolidated statements of income and our investment balance is included in long-term investments on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Investments in entities where we do not have the ability to exercise significant influence over the investee are accounted for at fair value or cost minus impairment, if any, adjusted for changes resulting from observable price changes, which are included in other income (expense), net on our condensed consolidated statements of income. Our investment balance is included in long-term investments on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. We determine at the inception of each investment, and re-evaluate if certain events occur, whether an entity in which we have made an investment is considered a variable interest entity (“VIE”). If we determine an investment is a VIE, we then assess if we are the primary beneficiary, which would require consolidation. As of June 30, 2021, no VIEs qualified for consolidation as the structures of these entities do not provide us with the ability to direct activities that would significantly impact their economic performance. The carrying value of our investments that are VIEs is included as non-marketable equity securities applying the equity method of accounting in long-term investments on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Our maximum exposure to loss, which represents funded commitments and any future funding commitments, was $144 million and $105 million as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. These condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the “2020 Form 10-K”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 5, 2021.

ReclassificationsReclassifications Beginning with the fourth quarter of 2020, we reclassified certain cash flows related to customer balances from cash flows from operating activities to cash flows from investing activities and cash flows from financing activities within the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These changes had no impact on our previously reported consolidated net income, financial position, net change in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash, or total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash as reported on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. The current period presentation classifies all changes in funds receivable and customer accounts and funds payable and amounts due to customers consistently on our condensed consolidated statement of cash flows as cash flows from investing activities and cash flows from financing activities, respectively, regardless of which product the cash flows relate to on our Payments Platform. The current period presentation provides a more meaningful representation of the cash flows related to the movement of customer funds due to the restrictions on and use of those funds.
Use of estimatesUse of estimates The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to provisions for transaction and credit losses, loss contingencies, income taxes, revenue recognition, and the valuation of goodwill and intangible assets. We base our estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions which we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates may change as new events occur, and as additional information surrounding the continued impact of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic becomes available. Actual results could differ from these estimates and any such differences may be material to our financial statements.
Recent accounting guidanceRecent accounting guidance In 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting . This amended guidance provides transition relief for the accounting impact of reference rate reform. For a limited period, this guidance provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to certain contract modifications, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by a reference rate expected to be discontinued due to reference rate reform. The amended guidance is effective through December 31, 2022. Our exposure to London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) is primarily limited to an insignificant portion of our available-for-sale debt securities and, accordingly, we do not expect reference rate reform to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements. There are other new accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB that we have adopted or will adopt, as applicable. We do not believe any of these accounting pronouncements have had, or will have, a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements or disclosures.
