Due to Heavy Demand, PayPal Increased its Weekly Purchase Limit to $20k

November 16, 2020


PayPal declared on Thursday that all the eligible account holders on PayPal in the U.S can now hold, sell, and purchase cryptocurrency. The company also increased the number of cryptocurrency customers can purchase in a week.


As per the CoinDesk data, the price of BTC has increased 32.54% from the date of PayPal’s declaration, on October 21. The users are currently not able to send crypto assets to friends & family, or withdraw crypto resources or utilize crypto to pay for goods and services from their cryptocurrencies store to an outside crypto wallet, according to PayPal’s crypto terms and conditions.


During the giant’s recent earnings call on November 2, Dan Schulman, the CEO of PayPal stated that only 10% of the firm’s users in the U.S were able to use the crypto service. Further Aaron Gould, PayPal’s spokesman said on Thursday, due to the increased demand from the users, PayPal has increased the weekly crypto purchase limit to $20K per week.


Referring to steep interest, the publicly traded payments firm increased its week by week crypto buy limits from $10,000 to $15,000 at that point and said remaining U.S. clients would gain admittance to crypto in the following half a month. By acting so rapidly and raising as far as possible once more, PayPal is finding a warm gathering for its crypto contributions. 


Plans to bring crypto administrations to Venmo and worldwide clients in the primary portion of 2021 stay unaltered, Gould said. The administration stops by the method of an association with Paxos, an enrolled fintech firm situated in New York that will deal with all crypto authority for PayPal’s sake. PayPal’s crypto administration at first supports Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash yet just with restricted usefulness. Some have scrutinized the firm for its prohibitive methodology.
