The mission of the Payments org is to empower everyone to participate in the digital economy. One of the most impactful forms of digital transformation is when technology is used to do what people already do - but just a whole lot better than they did before. With people around the world already using our family of apps to connect with people and/or businesses, we can make it easier and safer for everyone to close the loop on transactions by providing convenience, protection and best-in-class security to keep people's credentials and transactions safe. Businesses can deepen their ability to leverage our platform when we provide them with the capabilities to scale and grow. We're building products that solve real problems that will empower everyone's ability to participate in the digital economy.
