You would rather give your credit card, debit card or bank account information to a perfect stranger?

 

There isn't a safer on line financial service available. PayPal doesn't share your financial information with anybody.

 

You attach your credit card, debit card or bank account to PayPal and you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

 

And, 95% of all eBay sellers will only accept PayPal.

Everyone has to become verified, attach a bank account after they reach their lifetime spending/sending limit.

 

Open a free checking account and use that.

 

Do not attach your main household bank account.

 

Otherwise, your eBay purchasing will be very limited.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.
