FAQs

How does PayPal work?

It's simple, really. When you shop online, choose PayPal when paying for your items. You'll be asked to log into your PayPal account using your email address and password. Click to confirm your payment and then you're done.

By the way, you can also use your PayPal account to send payments and get paid online.

Is PayPal secure?

Your financial security is our highest priority. You're protected from any unauthorized payment made from your PayPal account.

Can I use PayPal and still collect credit card reward points?

If you'd prefer to use an existing rewards card, just link that credit card to your PayPal account. You can do it either when you sign up or by updating your account profile (just log into your PayPal account and click on Profile at the top of the page).

Once either rewards card is linked to your PayPal account, select your credit card as your method of payment when you check out using PayPal and you'll rack up the rewards!

Can I use PayPal without money in my PayPal account?

Yes, you can. To pay for things or to send payments, simply link your credit card to your PayPal account. You can do this when you sign up for an account, or by updating your PayPal account profile. To view and edit your profile, log in to your PayPal account and click on Profile at the top of the page.

How do I use my credit card with PayPal?

It's easy. When you make or send a payment, PayPal uses your PayPal balance first to cover the payment. If your PayPal balance doesn't cover the transaction the credit card you linked to your PayPal account will be used for the payment.
