Paying with PayPal is a safe alternative to paying with cash. PayPal uses SSL technology to keep your information safe and you’re 100% protected against unauthorized payments sent from your account. In addition, when you send a payment using PayPal, the recipient won't receive sensitive financial information like your credit card or bank account number. This way, you don't have to worry about paying people you don't know.
If you’re purchasing a larger priced item, for example, then carrying cash might not be the best option for you. Did you know that with PayPal, you can securely link your bank account, your credit cards and/or your VISA Debit card? It’s a quick and easy way to make a payment.
Please keep in mind these safety tips:
PayPal will always address you by your first and last name, or by your business name. If you receive an email addressing you any other way, it’s likely a fraudulent request.
Emails from PayPal will never link directly to pages that ask you to input sensitive information such as credit card numbers or passwords. These requests are likely phishing attempts.
