•What is PayPal?
PayPal is a secure online payment method that keeps your financial details safe when buying online. PayPal is more than just the way to pay for things on eBay. In fact, PayPal is available at over 80,000 merchants/retailers.
•How it works
PayPal is similar to an online wallet. You can store your bank, debit and credit card details, to give you the choice of how you want to pay. You do not need to keep funds in your PayPal account so long as it is linked to one of these funding sources.
PayPal keeps financial and personal details secure. The service allows you to make online purchases knowing this sensitive information will not be revealed.
Signing up for a PayPal account is free.
