Dear Dan:

eBay Inc. (the “Company” or “eBay”) is pleased to offer you, on the terms and conditions set forth in this offer letter (this “Letter”), the exempt position of President, PayPal, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“PayPal, Inc.”), reporting directly to the President and Chief Executive Officer of eBay. As President of PayPal, Inc. you will be responsible for managing the performance of the PayPal business unit, including financial performance, product development, and all operations of the business unit. In addition, the Company confirms that if the Company elects to spin-off PayPal, Inc. through the dividend of PayPal, Inc. shares to existing shareholders of the Company or through other means (a “Spin-Off”), then you will, effective on the date of the Spin-Off, become President and Chief Executive Officer of the publicly traded PayPal, Inc. entity (such entity, “PayPal”, and such position, “PayPal CEO”). In the role of PayPal CEO, you shall report solely and directly to the Board of Directors of PayPal (the “PayPal Board”). The Company will also cause you to be appointed as a member of the PayPal Board, effective immediately prior to the effective date of the Spin-Off, with a term of office no less than that of the longest term of any other PayPal Board member. For so long as you remain PayPal CEO, you may be nominated to the PayPal Board and, if re-elected, you shall serve as a member of the PayPal Board without additional consideration. The terms and conditions of this Letter have been approved by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of eBay (the “Compensation Committee”).

Compensation as PayPal, Inc. President

Cash Compensation. As PayPal, Inc. President, you will be paid a bi-weekly salary of $34,615.39, which is equivalent to an annualized rate of base salary (your “annual base salary”) of $900,000. You will also be eligible to participate in the eBay Incentive Plan (eIP) available to employees in positions comparable to yours. Payouts under the plan for Presidents are based on individual achievements as well as Company performance and are paid on an annual cycle. Your annual target bonus opportunity (your “target bonus opportunity”) for the eIP is 175% of your base salary (i.e., $1,575,000). To be eligible to receive any eIP bonus, you must be employed for a full calendar quarter in the applicable fiscal year and you must be actively employed on the date the bonus is paid, except as otherwise provided herein. The payment of any bonus is subject to the terms and conditions of the eIP. The Company reserves the right to amend, change or cancel the eIP at its sole discretion, provided that the Company does so for all similarly situated executives of eBay.

Equity Compensation. The grant of all eBay restricted stock units (“RSUs”), eBay performance-based restricted stock units (“PBRSUs”), and options to purchase shares of eBay’s common stock (“Options”) described in this Letter is subject to the grant by the Compensation Committee and subject to your continued employment with an eBay company on the applicable grant dates, except as otherwise provided herein. Awards are described in this Letter as a dollar value and the number of shares of eBay common stock subject to each award will be determined as follows: (i) for RSUs, by dividing the dollar value by the average of the closing prices of eBay common stock as reported on the NASDAQ Global Select Market for the period of 10 consecutive trading days ending on (and including) the last trading day prior to the grant date (the “Average eBay Closing Price”), and rounding down to the nearest whole number of shares of eBay common stock, (ii) for PBRSUs, by dividing the earned dollar amount, if any, by the Average eBay Closing Price, and rounding down to the nearest whole number of shares of eBay common stock and (iii) for Options, by dividing the dollar value by the Average eBay Closing Price, multiplying the resultant total by 3, and rounding down to the nearest whole number of shares of eBay common stock. The exercise price for all Options will be no less than the fair market value of eBay’s common stock on the applicable date of grant, as determined by the Compensation Committee.

Initial Awards. Upon commencement of your employment with eBay, you will be granted a combination of RSUs (the “Initial RSU Award”), PBRSUs (the “Initial PBRSU Award”), and Options (the “Initial Option Award”) and, together with the Initial RSU Award and the Initial PBRSU Award, the “Initial Awards”, all to be granted under the Company’s 2008 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) pursuant to the terms described in the following paragraphs. Such Initial Awards will be granted on the 15th day of the month following the month in which you commence employment with the Company.


You will be granted the Initial RSU Award valued at $4,500,000, subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, as well as the terms and conditions of the RSU agreement (which will be provided to you as soon as practicable after the grant date).

The Initial PBRSU Award will be earned based on performance over the period January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2015. The actual number of shares of eBay common stock that will be subject to the Initial PBRSU Award to be granted, if any, will be determined based on achievement during such period of Company performance goals determined by the Compensation Committee and will be subject to the terms and conditions of the performance plan approved by the Compensation Committee. The Initial PBRSU Award will be granted in early 2016 and will vest and become non-forfeitable (assuming your continued employment as provided below on each vesting date) as follows: 50% of the shares subject to the award on the grant date and the remaining 50% of the shares subject to the award on the first anniversary of the grant date, subject to necessary withholding for applicable taxes.

You will be granted an award of PBRSUs with a target value of $4,500,000 (the “PBRSU Focal Award”), subject to the terms and conditions of the Plans, as well as the terms and conditions of the applicable agreement (which will be provided to you as soon as practicable after the grant date). The PBRSU Focal Award will be earned based on performance over the period January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2016. The actual number of shares of eBay common stock that will be subject to the PBRSU Focal Award to be granted, if any, will be determined based on achievement during such period of Company performance goals determined by the Compensation Committee and will be subject to the terms and conditions of the performance plan approved by the Compensation Committee.

(i) An equity clawback make-good payment (the “Equity Clawback Make-good Payment”) to cover the actual amount you are required to repay your current employer, if any, to cover the pretax income you may have recognized on restricted stock units that became vested, and/or stock options that were exercised, in the 24 months prior to your termination of employment, up to a total amount of $10,496,388. You agree to work with the Company’s counsel to negotiate with your current employer to avoid the imposition of the clawback to the extent possible. The Equity Clawback Make-good Payment, less deductions and applicable taxes, will be paid to you within one pay period of when you provide the Company with written evidence from your current employer of the amount of the repayment to your current employer that you are required to repay (and in no event later than 2  12 months following the end of the year in which you are required to repay your current employer);

The Bonus Make-good Payment will be paid to you on December 24, 2014, subject to your continued employment on the payment date; provided, that if you are paid a bonus from your current employer for its current fiscal year performance (your “Prior Employer Bonus”), then you will not be entitled to receive the Bonus Make-good Payment, to the extent of the gross amount of your Prior Employer Bonus, and, if such Prior Employer Bonus is paid to you after you receive payment of the Bonus Make-good Payment, you shall return a corresponding amount back to eBay within thirty (30) days thereafter;

outstanding immediately prior to the date of your termination of employment will be valued based on their spread (i.e., the positive difference, if any, of the value of each share of eBay (or, after the Spin-Off, PayPal) common stock underlying the Option, as determined pursuant to clause (x) above), less the per share exercise price of such Option).

Tax and Other Matters.

Section 409A. The Company (or PayPal, as applicable) may withhold from any amounts payable to you such Federal, state, local or foreign taxes as shall be required to be withheld pursuant to any applicable law or regulation. It is intended that the payments and benefits provided under this Letter shall comply with the provisions of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (“Section 409A”) and the regulations relating thereto, or an exemption to Section 409A, and this Letter shall be interpreted accordingly. Any payments or benefits that qualify for the “short-term deferral” exception or another exception under Section 409A shall be paid under the applicable exception. Each payment under this Letter will be treated as a separate payment for purposes of Section 409A. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, a termination of employment shall not be deemed to have occurred for purposes of any provision of this Letter providing for the payment of amounts or benefits upon or following a termination of employment unless such termination is also a “separation from service” within the meaning of Section 409A and, for purposes of any such provision of this Letter, references to a “resignation,” “termination,” “termination of employment” or like terms shall mean separation from service. If you become entitled to a payment of nonqualified deferred compensation as a result of your termination of employment and at such time you are a “specified employee” (within the meaning of Section 409A and as determined in accordance with the methodology established by the Company (or PayPal, as applicable) as in effect on your date of termination), such payment will be postponed to the extent necessary to satisfy Section 409A, and any amounts so postponed will be paid in a lump sum on the first business day that is six months and one day after your separation from service (or any earlier date of your death). If the compensation and benefits provided under this Letter would subject you to taxes or penalties under Section 409A, the Company (or PayPal, as applicable) and you will cooperate diligently to amend the terms of this Letter to avoid such taxes and penalties, to the extent possible under applicable law.

Change in Control Golden Parachute Excise Taxes. In the event of a Change in Control, where an accounting firm designated by the Company (or PayPal, as applicable) determines that the aggregate amount of the payments and benefits that (but for the application of this paragraph) would be payable to you under this Letter agreement or any other plan, policy or arrangement of the Company (or PayPal, as applicable) and any of their affiliates, exceeds the greatest amount of payments and benefits that could be paid or provided to you without giving rise to any liability for any excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code (the “Excise Tax”), then you may elect either to (1) pay the Excise Tax and receive all such payments and benefits as may be payable to you, or (2) only receive the aggregate amount of such payments and benefits payable or to be provided to you that would not exceed the amount that produces the greatest after-tax benefit to you after taking into account any Excise Tax and other taxes that would otherwise be payable by you (such reduced amount of payments and benefits, the “Reduced Benefit Amount”). In the event you elect to receive the Reduced Benefit Amount, however, the reduction in such payments or benefits pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence shall be made in the following order: (1) by reducing severance payments based on your Annual Base Salary and Bonus Amount, if any is then payable, and then (2) by reducing amounts in respect of any equity-based awards (first in the form of cash payments, if any are due hereunder, then in respect of any vesting of any such awards hereunder, and only thereafter in respect of any vesting of any such awards under any other plan or arrangement).

All of us at eBay are very excited about you joining our team and look forward to a beneficial and fruitful relationship. However, should any dispute arise with respect to your employment or the termination of that employment, we both agree that such dispute shall be conclusively resolved by final, binding and confidential arbitration rather than by a jury court or administrative agency. The Company (or PayPal, as applicable) will bear those expenses unique to arbitration. Please review the enclosed Mutual Arbitration Agreement carefully.

Required Employee Agreements. As a condition of your employment with eBay, you must complete both the Mutual Arbitration Agreement and the enclosed Employee Proprietary Information and Inventions Agreement prior to commencing employment. In part, the Employee Proprietary Information and Inventions Agreement requires that a departing employee refrain from unauthorized use or disclosure of the Company’s confidential information (as defined in that Agreement). That Agreement does not prevent a former employee from using know-how and expertise in any new field or position. Notwithstanding anything in that Agreement to the contrary, following any termination of employment, (i) you will be permitted to retain any personal address book containing contact information (whether or not such address book is maintained on eBay’s systems) and (ii) you may, upon request, provide a reference in respect of any current or former employee of eBay. If you should have any questions about the Employee Proprietary Information and Inventions Agreement, please call me. Otherwise, please sign and date this document and return it to me in the enclosed envelope.


This Letter, the Mutual Arbitration Agreement, and the Employee Proprietary Information and Inventions Agreement contain the entire agreement with respect to your employment. Should you have any questions with regard to any of the items indicated above, please call me. Kindly indicate your consent to this agreement by signing copies of this Letter, the Mutual Arbitration Agreement, and the Employee Proprietary Information and Inventions Agreement and returning them to me, along with the Insider Trading Agreement certification.

This Letter cannot be assigned without your prior written consent, except that eBay is permitted to assign this Letter and the obligations thereunder to PayPal upon consummation of the Spin-Off. This Letter can be modified or amended only by a written instrument executed by eBay (or, following consummation of the Spin-Off, PayPal) and you. By signing this Letter, you represent that you are not subject to any agreements that would prevent you from becoming employed with our companies. Upon your signature below, this will become our binding agreement with respect to your employment and its terms merging and superseding in their entirety all other or prior offers, agreements and communications, whether written or oral, by you and the Company as to the specific subjects of this Letter.

Dan, the Board and I are thrilled by the prospect of you joining us. PayPal has an extraordinary future and I am confident that you are the right leader for PayPal at this exciting time.

Very truly yours,
