Been using it for years, merchants pay the 2.9% transaction fees unless they do higher volume then it drops to 2.2%.

I set the Long Island club up with it for buying tickets etc, 640 members all but about a dozen still mail checks the old school way, all others love it and use it every month.

PayPal was unable to explain why they were attempting to remove $3k from my bank account. They admitted they were doing it but could not explain why. My PayPal account had not been used for any purchases. Each of the three times they tried to take the money, I would contact them and they said they would cancel the transaction. They did not and finally someone from the operations center at CFB was able to resolve it after contacting PayPal. Needless to say I cancelled my account.

Also, one time I purchased something online and I clicked on the form to pay and it did nothing, so I clicked again but this time used PayPal and guess what..I was charged twice and told no refunds. I contacted the credit card company and was told sorry, too bad...I called Pay Pal and they said...oh yeah...we will get it back and did immediately.
Panjo uses PayPal and it is really cheap for the sellers to use....I say it is good for everyone.
and was told "to bad"???? That is one lousy company....mine would have removed the charge.

Never click a "purchase" link more than once...always hit the back key and then start over...thought it was common sense...guess not eh?

I have used PayPal for many years without a problem. I have it linked to a Visa card which I use for online purchases only and NO access to my bank account. It is my opinion that PayPal is the safest way to shop online.

Thumbs up for Paypal. I think it is a generational thing. Many younger people don't even own a checkbook. They have Paypal...

Opened a Pay Pal account several years ago to shop on EBAY. Got phished more than a few times and decided it wasn't worth the risk.

I've been using Google wallet for several years (same system that Apple copied). Kind of funny that people think younger folks use paypal. It's kind of like facebook. Used to be a young folks thing, then the older folks started using it and the younger folks moved on to the next big thing.

They have 157 million accounts, I don't think you have to worry.

When you get phished by a Pay Pal look alike you are asked to give credit card information. Having 157 million accounts just means the scammers have a better chance of finding an unsuspecting person.
53 million people had there information taken from Home Depot. Read there promise of your information security. Besides the nuisance of getting new credit cards, there is one big upside. I'm expecting my check for $45,000,000 from Mr. Sterling to be arriving any day!!!

Spring Chicken nailed it.......these things might have a "generational" aspect to them at first look, but but it almost as if the younger, or current, generation often times "skips" a generation in technology. PayPal was the main thing for our kids group maybe 5-7 yrs ago.....but these days, besides scanning checks to make deposits and shredding the paper, most are using thing like Venmo or the like to move cash around - whether it's splitting a dinner check, or paying back for a taxi or movie ticket. I've been using it to get quicker (and less troublesome!) paybacks from the kids for stuff they owe me for. Goes right into the bank account!

If you worry about Paypal, think about giving your credit card to a waitress it goes out of your site, the numbers can be written down and stolen, bigger risk than Paypal
