Hi, i've noticed a few sites using PayPal, is it a secure setup , did /would you use it??

Been using Paypal for several years with no problems at all. No doubt there will be others who will say they will avoid like the plague - but not me.

P.S. I use eBay quite a lot and always take care to bid only on items where the seller, especially those from outside the UK, will accept PayPal as a method for payment.

Paypal is now owned by eBay and is very secure (there was a recent scam with e-mails puporting to be from Paypal asking people to confirm their credit card details but really!)It is the perfect way to pay instantly for your eBay purchases, the seller receives instant payment and can despatch your goods straight away. It's the only way to eBay.

I've used it twice with no problems, I guess its secure as any online payment method.
I've bought several things over the net,pay my household bills regular over the net,use online banking and online credit card facilities and never had any problems

to accept credit card payments on clients' websites, and have not had a single problem. They are a very professional and security concious company - after all, their entire business depends on it.
