    Why would PayPal make another product that is better than the original

    Why would PayPal make another product that is better than the original PayPal? What is the catch here?? Sounds too good to be true!

    Probably Paypal wants to reach those entrepreneurs and startup companies by offering the first 50k in transactions for free, giving them a chance to grow without the hassle of paying fees for payments processing.

    PayPal bought Braintree because it was very successful and growing rapidly. I think this is similar to Facebook buying Instagram. Instagram was growing too rapidly and it was a threat for Facebook. So, by owning Instagram, Facebook is now more powerful. It is just my humble opinion. 

    From the point view of users, Braintree integration is simpler if you are not used to paying for things with PayPal a lot. The user enters credit card on the form and submits the form. If you use PayPal, the user is redirected to the PayPal site.
