The number of transactions processed on the San Francisco payment company's network expanded 9%, to 10.5 billion in the period, which ended Sept. 30.

The dollar volume of credit card payments fell 2% from the year earlier, to $426 billion, during the quarter that ended June 30. Debit payments volume grew 7%, to $261 billion.
