Greater security and many times more economical Jul 12, 2005

Karine,

In short, it provides greater security in that you don't have to give out your banking information. I live in the U.S., and the PayPal fee to receive payment is less than the fee for receiving wire transfers from abroad.
Go to www.paypal.com, and it should be explained pretty well there. I use PayPal and I think it's great. I can receive payments from half across the world for next to nothing, and I don't have to give anyone my banking information (Besides PayPal, that is).

Check other entries/postings on this issue Jul 12, 2005

Hi Karine,

This topic has been discussed several times before and hence you may want to read what other members had to say.
Just enter Paypal or Moneybookers in the Search box on the left hand side of this page.

For what it's worth: I have been using Paypal and Moneybookers for quite some time and never experienced any problems.


Good luck!

No problem with PayPal Jul 13, 2005

I have been using PayPal for a long time and I have had no problems so far. It is a pity that not every country of the world has PayPal available, but hopefully soon they will have it.
HTH,

Monika

Pay Pal and Skype Jul 13, 2005

Skype used to accept payment for computer to fixed line calls by credit card. Now it seems this method is no longer an option.
