  • Visa's Plaid Takeover Signals Wave of Fintech Dealmaking

    Visa's Plaid Takeover Signals Wave of Fintech Dealmaking

    (Bloomberg) -- After last year’s deluge of financial technology megadeals, investors wondered if the boom could continue into 2020. This week, Visa Inc.’s $5.3 billion acquisition of Plaid Inc. offered an answer: Yes.  “Visa buying Plaid brings fintech from out in the wild to something more mainstream,” said Bain Capital Ventures’ Matt Harris. “It’s a ‘growing up’ moment for all of us,” he said, adding that the startup will now be part of the “critical infrastructure underlying the financial services industry.”Plaid’s rapid ascent—Square Inc. looked at buying it in 2018 for just a fifth of the eventual selling price—comes as large companies look to expand their offerings, and contend with fast-growing digital competition. In November, PayPal Holdings Inc. snapped up online coupon company Honey Science Corp. for $4 billion. Charles Schwab Corp. acquired TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. for $26 billion. And Fiserv Inc., Fidelity National Information Services Inc. and Global Payments Inc. did a series of major deals in 2019 that remade the corporate landscape of payment processing.Today there are nearly 60 financial technology startups valued at more than $1 billion, according to data from CB Insights, a research firm. Many are now acquisition targets, analysts say. Those include smaller players like SoftBank Group Corp.-backed unicorn Kabbage Inc., as well as giants like Stripe Inc., most recently valued at $35 billion, a price tag that makes it one of the world’s largest startups. Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. analyst Harshita Rawat, said in a note that Fiserv and PayPal could be potential bidders for Stripe.Ryan Caldwell, chief executive officer of financial data company MX Technologies Inc., suggested the Visa deal could trigger a domino effect in the industry. “The space tends to heat up when there's been one acquisition,” Caldwell said, adding that larger companies were increasingly aware of fintech’s potential. “A lot of these players definitely need to partner,” he said.Satya Patel, a partner at venture capital firm Homebrew, which was a Plaid investor, said he didn’t expect a bonanza for VCs. “As an active fintech investor, I’d like to think that its acquisition is a sign of things to come,” but added that for every Plaid there will be many more startups that are bought for much less, or go out of business. While companies like Plaid and Stripe deal with the plumbing of fintech, would-be acquirers may also seek out consumer-facing financial startups. In the consumer world, “a re-bundling of financial products is underway,” Patel said. Analysts have speculated that future potential acquisitions could involve some of the new payment plan and lending services, such as Affirm Inc., Afterpay and Klarna Bank AB.“The alternative lending space feels ripe for consolidation,” said Lisa Ellis, an analyst at MoffettNathanson. These firms would make sense for “possibly PayPal or Square, since they have alternative lending businesses already and these would extend those, even banks like a Discover,’’ she said.The rising crop of digital-first alternative banks, or “neo-banks,” saw big investment last year, and may also see an uptick in deals. Digital banking startups like Chime Inc., Revolut Ltd., N26 and Dave Inc. fall into this category. Because many of them have similar business models, experts believe the industry could be ripe for buyouts.“The neo-bank space will probably consolidate at some point,’’ Ellis said. “Many firms are burning cash just trying to buy and acquire customers.” But that might not happen right away. Said Ellis: “The valuation bubble has to pop a bit for that group to be acquired.”(Adds investor quote in sixth paragraph. )\--With assistance from Jennifer Surane.To contact the author of this story: Julie Verhage in New York at jverhage2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Anne VanderMey at, Mark MilianFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Betting with credit cards to be banned from April

    The move goes further than expected following a consultation in November when the ban was expected to be limited to online gambling. The Gambling Commission said on Tuesday it would also apply to offline betting with the exception of over-the-counter lottery tickets. “The evidence suggests that the risks to people depositing money using credit cards were significant both in terms of them gambling money that is not theirs to start with and the fact that online it was encouraging riskier behaviour by making players more likely to chase their losses,” said Neil McArthur, chief executive of the Gambling Commission.

  • Amazon Tells Shoppers That PayPal’s Honey Is a Security Risk

    Amazon Tells Shoppers That PayPal’s Honey Is a Security Risk

    (Bloomberg) -- PayPal Holdings Inc. made a big bet in November with its $4 billion acquisition of Honey, a web browser extension that helps online shoppers find the lowest prices. Now Inc. is warning customers not to use the tool.Shortly before Christmas, Amazon said Honey posed a security risk, which was reported Thursday by Wired. The warning perplexed some online shopping experts since the tool has been available for several years and Amazon makes no similar warnings about other browser extensions such as price tracker“Amazon’s fight against Honey while letting a dozen other tools go on is confusing,” said Juozas Kaziukenas, founder of New York e-commerce research firm Marketplace Pulse. “I don’t buy their security risk message. They just want Honey and PayPal to be squashed.”There is no love lost between Amazon and PayPal, which spun off from e-commerce competitor EBay Inc. in 2015. Amazon has its own online payments service that competes with PayPal and doesn’t allow PayPal payments on its site.PayPal executives were surprised by the Amazon warning about Honey and are communicating with Amazon to resolve it, according to a person familiar with the situation, who requested anonymity to discuss an internal matter. One possibility for PayPal: alerting federal antitrust regulators since the Honey warning could be interpreted as Amazon using its size and clout to harm a competitor. Regulators have encouraged Amazon rivals to provide information about potential anticompetitive practices.If PayPal thinks Amazon’s warning is unwarranted, it can accuse Amazon of deceptive practices, requiring Amazon to explain why it did so.“As markets become more concentrated and firms grow larger, we are seeing more attempts to protect market positions and eliminate rivals through deceptive practices,” said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute.Just before Christmas, banners started popping up on Amazon that told shoppers to be cautious when using Honey, calling it “a security risk” and “to keep your data private and secure, uninstall this extension immediately.”“Our extension is not – and has never been – a security risk and is safe to use,” a Honey spokesperson said. “We have a team dedicated to ensuring the security of our users’ information and we regularly engage expert third-party security firms to assess our security protections. If ever an individual or independent researcher contacts us about a potential vulnerability, we engage with that person to understand and remedy the issue (if there is one).”Los Angeles-based Honey has more than 17 million users, who use the extension to save money at Amazon and other online retailers.Amazon shoppers using Honey could be less inclined to follow Amazon suggestions, which don’t always direct shoppers to the lowest-priced product since it considers other factors such as shipping speed. Honey’s use could undermine Amazon’s own algorithm, diminishing the company’s power of suggestion over its shoppers. Amazon has been accused of favoring its own products over competitors, which the company disputes.In an emailed statement, an Amazon spokeswoman said: “Our goal is to warn customers about browser extensions that collect personal shopping data without their knowledge or consent such as customer name, shipping and/or billing address and payment method from the checkout page.”(Updates with antitrust comment in seventh paragraph.)\--With assistance from Matt Day.To contact the reporters on this story: Julie Verhage in New York at;Spencer Soper in Seattle at ssoper@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Robin Ajello at, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • Amazon labels Honey a security risk — but only after PayPal bought it
    American City Business Journals

    Amazon labels Honey a security risk — but only after PayPal bought it Inc. does not appear sweet on the latest acquisition of PayPal Holdings Inc. The e-commerce giant has labeled Honey, a free browser extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes when users shop online, a security risk. One of the sites that Honey works with, and has since its beginning in 2012, is Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN). Politico editor Ryan Hutchins was among the Honey users who first noted the warning on Twitter at the height of Christmas shopping season: "Honey tracks your private shopping behavior, collects data like your order history and items saved, and can read or change any of your data on any website you visit," the warning reads.

    Three Things PayPal Stock Needs to Do to Hit $140 in 2020

    As stock performances go, PayPal's (NASDAQ:PYPL) gains in 2019 were probably a disappointment for shareholders.Source: JHVEPhoto / Normally, a 29% return on any stock, let alone one of the world's leading payment processors, would be considered a success.But 2019 wasn't just any year. The S&P 500 delivered its second-best performance of the decade, up 28.9%. Furthermore, while PayPal stock gained almost 30%, it lagged the S&P 500 Data Processing & Outsourced Services Index by 15 percentage points.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn 2020, with expectations much lower for the S&P 500 and markets in general, if PYPL were to deliver a repeat performance, the stock price would close the year around $140.Here are three things PayPal needs to do in the next 12 months to ensure PYPL stock hits $140. Partnerships Have to Reap RewardsOn Dec. 30, PayPal CEO Dan Schulman announced the company was expanding its partnership with Latin America's biggest e-commerce marketplace, Mercadolibre (NASDAQ:MELI), a stock I've long favored. * 8 of the Strangest Stocks Worth Your Time In March 2019, as part of a $1.8 billion equity offering by Mercadolibre to expand and grow its e-commerce business, PayPal invested $750 million in the Argentinian company. "Digital commerce in Latin America is experiencing tremendous growth and MercadoLibre is well-positioned for continued leadership," Schulman said at the time. "We've been impressed with the digital commerce and payments ecosystem Marcos [Galperin, MELI CEO] and his team have built."However, that was just an investment.2019's end-of-the-year announcement expands the relationship to include PayPal as a payment option for online checkout via Mercado Pago in Brazil and Mexico. In addition, PayPal will be accepted in the MercadoLibre marketplace in Brazil and Mexico for cross-border purchases.As a result, PayPal's 300 million customers can now use the payment processor to buy stuff online in two of Latin America's largest commercial markets.I said in November that if you could afford to buy both PYPL and MELI, you should. Based off December's announcement, I would double down on that sentiment.In the year ahead, I want to see tangible progress from this partnership. If we do, PayPal's valuation multiples could start to creep higher, a necessity if PYPL stock is to hit $140, let alone $200. Additional Revenue Streams for PYPLPayPal announced Jan. 6 that it had completed the $4 billion purchase of Honey, a Los Angeles-based digital shopping and rewards platform."The addition of Honey to our platform enables a significant step forward in our commitment to provide powerful services and tools for merchants and consumers, move beyond our core checkout proposition and significantly enhance the shopping experience for our 300 million consumers and merchants," Schulman stated in a company release. Whether we're talking about PayPal, Square (NYSE:SQ), Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), or any of the other fintech companies participating in and around e-commerce, they all want to offer as many products or services to merchants and customers as they possibly can.The Holy Grail of e-commerce is to become a one-stop shop for merchants and buyers alike. We're not there quite yet, but moves like acquiring Honey bring PayPal that much closer. Business Insider contributor Mike Jaconi said it best in a Jan. 7 opinion piece:"When it comes to loyalty, every company, from multi-billion-dollar businesses like Amazon to your favorite mom-and-pop coffee shop, wants to do the same thing: Convince you to come to them first -- and not their competitors -- as frequently as possible."Honey's entire business model is built on driving commerce. Now, not only can Honey influence what people buy, but it can also influence how they buy those products.That's huge. In 2020, I'll be watching Honey's overall effect on PayPal stock. Continue to Monetize VenmoOne of the things Sanford Bernstein analyst Harshita Rawat would like to see from PayPal in 2020 is further monetization of Venmo, its peer-to-peer payment system. Toward the end of 2019, reports surfaced that Venmo was losing users to Square's Cash App, a sign that the stakes might be higher for PayPal in 2020. According to Macquarie analyst Dan Dolev, Cash App is doing well in Venmo strongholds such as New York, California and Massachusetts. Up until now, Venmo's owned the markets on both coasts, with Cash App ruling in the South and Midwest. However, with new features being introduced such as commission-free stock trading, Cash App is getting the attention of new user demographics, forcing Venmo to keep pace.In the year ahead, I'm not so concerned with the monetization of Venmo as I am about user base losses. Square is catching up, and while I like both stocks, that ought to be a big concern for PYPL shareholders. The Bottom Line on PayPal StockIn 2019, Square stock was soundly beaten by PayPal. In 2020, I think the battle between the two payment processors is going to be a lot closer. Who will win? I couldn't tell you. Long-term, I like PYPL stock. But if PayPal takes care of these three issues, I think it's got a shot at hitting $140.At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
