What is PayPal?
PayPal is a service that enables you to pay, send money, and accept payments without revealing your financial information. Sign-up is free and easy!
How Does PayPal Work?
PayPal acts like a digital wallet where you can securely store all your payment options, such as your bank account and credit card. When you want to make a payment, you don't have to pull out your credit card or type your billing info every time.
Simply click on the PayPal checkout button, log in to your PayPal account, and select your preferred payment method. We'll complete the payment process—without sharing your info with merchants and sellers.
How Does PayPal Protect My Financial Information?
When you sign up for PayPal, we ask you to link your bank account, debit card, or credit card so that your payments can be funded. This information is never shared with retailers. In fact, it's securely protected by data encryption technology, reducing the risk of online fraud and identity theft.
How Does PayPal Stop Hackers?
Your PayPal account is protected by the latest anti-fraud technology and a dedicated team of specialists working round-the-clock against the bad guys. We constantly monitor PayPal transactions for suspicious activity and alert our customers as soon as a problem is detected. We also share safety tips and fraud-fighting tools like our Safe Password Checker.
How Does PayPal Protect My Purchases?
When you pay using PayPal, our Purchase Protection coverage is included at no extra cost. We offer buyers $0 Liability for Unauthorized Purchases, refunds for incorrect orders or items that never arrive, and a convenient process for resolving problems.
