PayPal Super Bowl Ad Thrown Into Fight Against Newcomers including TransferWise

PayPal is not as old as banks, but they are the online payment dinosaur. The PayPal Super Bowl 50 Ad is supposed to show the company's vision for the future of money.

I am a PayPal users since pretty much its beginning in 1998. At first I just used it for private purchases. Later when I founded my company I began to use it for business. We still use PayPal today to pay many of our freelancers around the world. It just works. 

This year I started to use a new online payment solution to tackle the problem of transferring money from our US Bank account to our German Bank Accounts. Banks are slow and fill their pockets several times until the money arrives in an account.

Transferwise is way cheaper and much faster. The service TransferWise offers should actually also be something I should be able to do with PayPal. You can do that indirectly with two PayPal accounts, but it is much less streamlined and more transparent on TransferWise.

PayPal announced yesterday to run the company's first Super Bowl ad. The PayPal Super Bowl 50 Ad is supposed to Introduce the world to PayPal’s vision for the future of money. The commercial will kick off a new brand campaign that is about a reimagined financial world that must include everyone.

PayPal is now 17 years old, but already considered "old school", when looking at TranferWise and other new money transfer services and apps. 

The company spun out of eBay again last year in September. Now it seems the company is ready to take on the new generation of payment services and the future.

Super Bowl 50 will take place on February 7, 2016, in Santa Clara, at the Levi's Stadium. The stadium is the home of the home of the San Francisco 49ers. Super Bowl 50 will be topping all previous Super Bowl's because of the anniversary. Marketers are flocking to Super Bowl 50 and it will be a huge TV event.

Find out which Super Bowl 50 Ads will be airing during the Big Game in 2016.
