(Bloomberg) -- Clipping coupons is no way to amass a modern mega-fortune, but two Los Angeles men who reinvented the practice for the internet age have just reaped about $1.5 billion.That’s the estimated pretax haul for Honey Science Corp. co-founders George Ruan, 40, and Ryan Hudson, 39, following the $4 billion sale of their firm to PayPal Holdings Inc., according to EquityZen, a marketplace for shares of closely held companies. Ruan, the chief executive officer, and Hudson received roughly $900 million and $575 million, respectively.A spokesman for San Jose, California-based PayPal declined to comment.Honey is largely used by consumers as a browser extension that automatically applies coupons at e-commerce sites. PayPal has said it plans to use those capabilities to give its customers a better shopping experience and help merchants boost sales, partly with more timely and personalized offers.Read more: PayPal to acquire online coupon site Honey for $4 billionThe duo join an ever-growing roster of U.S. fintech tycoons. Plaid Inc. co-founders Zach Perret and William Hockey announced the sale of their company to payments giant Visa Inc. for $5.3 billion on Jan. 13, while Robinhood Markets Inc. co-founders Vlad Tenev and Baiju Bhatt became billionaires in 2018 as the valuation of their electronic stock brokerage soared.The cash acquisition of Los Angeles-based Honey -- announced in November and completed this month -- was PayPal’s largest-ever acquisition. The deal gives it access to valuable data on consumer buying habits.Ruan and Hudson, who founded Honey in 2012, will continue to run the business, according to a Nov. 20 statement. About 17 million people use Honey apps or web browser extensions monthly to find discounts at online shopping sites.To contact the reporters on this story: Tom Metcalf in London at email@example.com;Julie Verhage in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Pierre Paulden at email@example.com, Peter Eichenbaum, Steven CrabillFor 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.
(Bloomberg) -- Adyen NV will process payments for tens of thousands of Subway Restaurant’s stores in the U.S. and Canada, under a deal with the fast-food chain announced Tuesday.Adyen Chief Operating Officer Kamran Zaki said in an interview that his company would help Subway process orders in more than 20,000 venues across North America, adding that the fast-food firm is one of the biggest in terms of number of locations. Adyen has already started processing Subway payments in some stores.The Dutch company is facing off with firms like San Francisco-based Stripe Inc. to sign on more merchants, positioning itself to bank a slice of customers’ transactions. EBay Inc. in 2018 announced it would ditch its longtime partner PayPal Holdings Inc. in favor of Adyen.The deal to process payments for orders in-restaurant, online and through the Subway app comes as Adyen signs on a growing number of customers in the food and beverage industry. Adyen in December said it’d clinched a deal to process McDonald’s Corp.’s mobile app transactions.“This is material and not a side project with a fantastic name,” Pieter van der Does, Adyen’s chief executive officer, said of the Subway partnership in an interview.As global e-commerce continues to rise and as merchants look to facilitate customers’ payments, Adyen’s shares have increased three-fold since its initial public offering in June 2018. The Amsterdam-based company offers merchants payment processing both online and in stores and in a variety of local currencies. Other customers include Uber Technologies Inc., EasyJet Plc and Birchbox Inc., according to its website.In a statement, Subway Chief Information Officer Mike Macrie said “Adyen’s payment platform will further allow Subway to bring the latest digital payment technologies to market,” as it continues its digital push to offer guests greater convenience.To contact the reporter on this story: Natalia Drozdiak in Brussels at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at email@example.com, Nate LanxonFor 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.

(Bloomberg) -- PayPal Holdings Inc. is taking another step into the giant Chinese payments market, partnering with state-backed China UnionPay Co. in a move that could expand PayPal’s network in the country. The partnership will allow some UnionPay cardholders access to PayPal’s network, and eventually, could pave the way for PayPal to be accepted at Chinese locations that take UnionPay.Users of Shanghai-based UnionPay, the world’s largest card company by payment volume, will be able to add their UnionPay cards to PayPal accounts and use them in a number of countries where PayPal is accepted outside of China. “There is a lot of room for us to help people visiting from China find a way to pay while traveling,” Jim Magats, senior vice president of global payments at PayPal, said in an interview.The companies also said that the tie-up would allow PayPal and UnionPay’s global subsidiary, UnionPay International, to “explore opportunities” to expand PayPal’s reach in China. In a statement, Magats said the new partnership would give the company the option to “expand PayPal’s digital wallet to physical retail locations where UnionPay is accepted in China, or internationally.”The UnionPay partnership is part of a string of moves by PayPal to grow its Chinese presence. In September, China’s central bank granted PayPal approval to buy a 70% stake in a Chinese payment company Gopay Information Technology Co., allowing PayPal to become the first foreign compapny to operate in China’s payment service market. Gopay has licenses for online, mobile and cross-border yuan payment services.China’s $27 trillion payments industry is dominated by a few companies, with Ant Financial Services Group and Tencent Holdings Ltd. accounting for a majority of digital payments, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. However, in a recent interview with Bloomberg, PayPal Chief Executive Officer Dan Schulman said that it wasn’t too late for the company to stake a claim there. “It’s an exploding market,” he said. “It’s growing so quickly that there’s room for every player in it.”On Wednesday, UnionPay cards will be available to be added to PayPal wallets in Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand. The companies said they plan to add the option for more than 30 other markets in 2020.To contact the reporter on this story: Julie Verhage in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Mark Milian at email@example.com, Anne VanderMeyFor 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.

(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 Amazon.com 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 camelcamelcamel.com.“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 firstname.lastname@example.org;Spencer Soper in Seattle at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Robin Ajello at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
