If I want to state in my Proz profile that I accept PayPal, should I enter my PayPal account ID? Is it safe to enter that data? Is there another way to do it?

a couple of ways, but... Jul 25, 2009

Go to Profile - Profile Updater - Financial. You can enter your PayPal email address there, also specify who can the access information. For me, only outsourcers can see the PayPal email address. However, even if they can see it there, they still ask me latericon_smile.gif So, If you don't want to expose your email address at all, I think you can just write down on your profile, like "I accept PayPal". Hope this helps.

I started to get spam (in reply to a Good Shopper forum posting) at an email address which I use for Paypal but which isn't otherwise visible on my ProZ profile page. A staff member explained that the only place it appeared was for the Paypal option. So now I simply indicate that I accept payment through PayPal without giving the address.
