In the summer of 1998, a 23-year-old Stanford Ph.D. student named Max Levchin attended a lecture given by Peter. The two struck up a friendship and soon Peter provided Max the funds he needed to launch what became PayPal. Max's idea intentionally was to build a payment system to allow payments to be sent between Palm electronics devices. Peter also eventually served as the company's Chairman and CEO.

The company leased an office space in downtown Palo Alto. By total coincidence, a rival digital payment company called was leasing space on the same floor. was founded by Elon Musk. Unlike PayPal's plan to facilitate payments between Palm devices, was working on a system for sending payments over the fledgling World Wide Web.

As competition and venture capital fund spending increased, PayPal and eventually agreed to merge. Thiel left soon after the merger was finalized and Elon Musk became CEO of the combined company which adopted PayPal as its name. In September 2000 PayPal's board ousted Elon as CEO and brought back Thiel to run the company.

PayPal was acquired by eBay for $1.5 billion in 2002. At that point, Peter's 3.7% stake was worth $60 million. At that point, Elon owned 11.7% and therefore earned around $175 million.

 Thiel had begun funding various lawsuits against Gawker, most notably one involving Hulk Hogan, who successfully sued for invasion of privacy after Gawker published a sex tape featuring the professional wrestler; the settlement resulted in the sale of the media company and the closing of its flagship Web site. 

Thiel also garnered attention in 2016 when he became a vocal supporter of Republican presidential nominee—and eventual winner of the election—Donald Trump, donating money and speaking at the party’s convention.
