You can pay with money held in your PayPal account balance or use a credit card or top up from your bank accounts.
Once you have a PayPal account, you can use PayPal to pay when you shop online. Websites offering PayPal will show the PayPal logo. You will be asked to log in to your account with your email address (this is needed to send payment instructions and acknowledgements) and password to confirm the payment. PayPal never shares financial information with sellers and retailers.
If you receive a payment through PayPal, you will receive an email notification and the money will be credited to your PayPal account. You can then use your PayPal balance to make payments, or withdraw the funds to your bank account.
At PayPal, we place great emphasis on guarding your personal and financial data. We employ SSL technologies and a series of security procedures to protect your information and enable secured online shopping. We will never reveal to the sellers or stores your financial data, such as credit card and accounts numbers. You are also protected from any unauthorized transaction.
PayPal is committed to provide users with timely protection through the use of anti-phishing tools, dedicated anti-phishing teams and state-of-the-art data encryption technologies to detect and prevent online theft and fraud.
