In an era of social distancing, the digital payments giant is employing an additional tool to promote safe, in-person payments.
A global recession may not seem like a great time to invest in companies that help people shop, but the payments sector has been one of the few bright spots for investors amid the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Shares in Amsterdam-based Adyen have jumped 36 per cent so far this year, compared with a 20 per cent decline in the Stoxx 600 Index of major European companies. In the US, PayPal and Square have risen 33 per cent and 26 per cent respectively, whereas the S&P 500 is still down by a tenth.
While there are no real winners in the COVID-19 pandemic, some companies are proving the merits of digital operations and growing their businesses at accelerated rates as families shelter-in-place and those employees who can work from home do so. PayPal Holdings (NASDAQ: PYPL) is a prime example. While incumbent digital payment processors Visa and Mastercard shares are still down by double-digit percentages from their all-time highs as they face a sharp near-term slowdown in growth, PayPal is surging to new all-time highs.
American Express CEO Stephen Squeri lays out his vision for how employees will return to work after COVID-19 quarantines lift.

The coronavirus health scare has led to significant increase in cashless transaction and fintech usage. Here are five stocks to watch out for on growth in the fintech industry.
PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) acquired Honey Science last fall for a whopping $4 billion. After closing the deal last quarter, PayPal wasted no time working to grow Honey's user base. Honey had about 17 million users when PayPal acquired it, and it's growing fast.

PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) and Square (NYSE: SQ) saw their payments volumes head in opposite directions in April amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. PayPal saw payment volume increase about 22% last month while the same metric fell about 39% for Square. As a result, Square is accelerating its efforts to offer more digital payment solutions and help its merchants shift online.
In this episode of MarketFoolery, Chris Hill chats with Motley Fool analyst Bill Barker about the latest earning releases. They first look at digital transactions and how they are growing as people move away from cash.
PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) has seen a surge in new accounts and payment volume as more shopping moves online, but it's certainly not resting on its laurels. During the company's first-quarter earnings call, CEO Dan Schulman highlighted three areas where the company is looking to accelerate its road map to help its surging user base get the most out of PayPal. It plans to offer more in-store digital payment capabilities, integrate Honey into PayPal, and increase the utility of its peer-to-peer payments.
Square's (NYSE: SQ) stock recently rallied after the digital payments company posted its first-quarter earnings. Its revenue rose 44% annually to $1.38 billion, beating estimates by $80 million and exceeding its own guidance for 36%-40% growth.
Primer, a U.K. fintech that wants to help merchants consolidate their payments stack and easily support new payment methods in the future, has quietly raised £3.8 million in funding. Leading its £3.2 million seed round is Balderton Capital -- which mostly does Series A -- with participation from Taavet Hinrikus, who co-founded and previously led TransferWise. Founded by ex-PayPal employees - via PayPal's acquisition of Braintree -- Primer is busy building out a payments API to (hopefully) rule them all, with the explicit aim of bringing greater transparency to a merchant's payment stack.
