Let me show you some tips on how to use PayPal:
First of all, let me introduce the meaning of PayPal. PayPal is a money transfer site which allows an individual to send funds to others or make online purchases. PayPal is a popular site for transferring money online, but learning how to use PayPal will ease transactions.
PayPal is an online financial middleman that facilitates the transfer of money between people and businesses online. Users only need to share private financial information with PayPal, not unknown parties. PayPal can be used to buy things online, shop on eBay, or receive money from friends. There are three different types of PayPal account – Personal, Premier and Business
A PayPal account can receive money as soon as it has been created, but to use it to send money or to buy products online, the user needs to set up a means of getting funds into the account. Normally the PayPal account is linked to an existing bank account, or to a credit or debit card.
Paypal has been subject to scams and security issues which the user needs to be aware of. Paypal can also be linked to software such Quicken, Skype and Facebook.
