All The Brands And Companies That Used To Be Known By A Different Name
PayPal didn’t always have such a catchy name.
Being able to make e-payments to people and businesses is totally normal now. Hell, there are tons of apps that let us do it right from our phones! But back in the 90’s, it was sort of a brave new world. Cofinity, a cryptography and Palm Pilot company, was founded in 1998. The name was a combination of confidence and infinity. But when they debuted a new feature that allowed people to email payments, they changed the name of the company to PayPal. Palm Pilots went the way of Blackberrys, but people are always going to need to get paid, so the change works.
