Safer with every transaction.
PayPal delivers one of the most secure payment platforms in the world. After more than a decade as a leader in online payments, we've learned a thing or two about keeping your information safer. Whether you’re buying, selling, or transferring money, you get an extra layer of security when you use PayPal. That’s because all your financial information (like your bank account details and your credit card number) is securely stored and encrypted on our servers. So you don’t need to share your financial information with the person receiving or sending the money and expose your details online or in public.
In addition, your transactions are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by a dedicated team of security specialists whose sole purpose is to identify suspicious activity and help protect you from fraudulent transactions. If a transaction doesn’t go as planned, or you’re worried about anything at all, like fraud or phishing, it’s easy for you to report issues and get help. On top of all this, we provide additional protection on your eligible purchases and sales through our Buyer Protection and Seller Protection policies, described below.
Pay however you want
PayPal gives you the flexibility to choose the best payment method for you each time you pay. You can link your PayPal account to your bank account, debit and credit cards. Just add your bank and card details to your PayPal account and then choose how you want to pay during the checkout process.
Easy to use
Using PayPal is simple. Shop for the things you love, send money to friends and family, and receive payments for items you sell online. Whichever device you’re using - tablet, mobile or computer - you can pay in just a few clicks. All you enter is your email address or mobile number and a secure password. It’s quick and it’s easy. It’s widely available too. You can use PayPal at millions of online stores worldwide, from the biggest retailers to the smallest specialist websites - just look for the PayPal button when you check out.
If you need just one reason to use PayPal, that reason is security. PayPal provides an extra layer of security for your payments by keeping your details private. The people you’re buying from never see your financial information, your card numbers and bank account details are never shared. You also never have to enter your details in public which is reassuring. We use the industry’s leading data encryption technologies and our dedicated team of anti-fraud expert’s works around-the-clock to monitor transactions.
