PayPal Holdings Inc.’s revenue increased 16.9% to $2.56 billion in the fourth quarter from $2.19 billion in the year-ago period. It was PayPal’s second three-month reporting period since separating from online marketplace eBay Inc. in July.

For the year, revenue grew 15.2% to $9.25 billion from $8.03 billion in 2014.

PayPal processed $20 billion in mobile payment volume in Q4, up 45%, PayPal said Wednesday when it reported quarterly and full-year results. Mobile payments account for 25% of total payment volume in Q4.

81% of the company’s revenue in the fourth quarter came from processing online transactions for merchants, PayPal said. Much of the remaining revenue comes from processing transactions by consumers who use PayPal to buy online. Among the Top 1000 online retailers in North America, 202 use PayPal as their payment processor and 466 accept PayPal, according to

PayPal’s mobile peer-to-peer payment app Venmo processed $2.5 billion in total payment volume in the fourth quarter, a 174% year-over-year increase, the company said.

Analyst Colin Sebastian, an e-commerce analyst at investment firm Robert W. Baird & Co., says in a note to investors that PayPal management plans an aggressive merchant rollout of “pay with Venmo” this year, but that it’s not expected to impact revenue until 2017 or 2018.

PayPal also is growing its OneTouch mobile payments feature, introduced in September 2014, which lets a consumer with a PayPal account that is linked to her mobile device complete a purchase on that device with just one touch. More than 15 million users have opted in to use PayPal OneTouch in the past six months, a 115% increase from 7 million announced in the company’s third quarter earnings call, Sebastian says. PayPal plans to roll out OneTouch to 100 new countries in the next six months, Sebastian says.

During the earnings call, PayPal said more than 50% of retailers in the Internet Retailer 2015 Top 500 Guide and more than 1 million merchants in 23 countries have OneTouch enabled to make it easier for their customers to check out quickly and securely. The company expects that number to grow significantly throughout the year as it rolls out OneTouch to another 100 countries in the next six months.

Sebastian says OneTouch's impressive uptake should drive growth for PayPal.
