PayPal is the most loved way to buy items worldwide using online shops like EBay, Amazon and others. In fact it’s the number one used service which helps to shop online quickly and securely.
Why choose PayPal?
When paying for items you purchased on an Online Shop you would normally provide your Credit/Debit card details and your card verification number. Now this could be dangerous if someone knows your CRDB Card number and the CVV (Card Verification Code) printed at the back of your card, he could steal all your money and unfortunately you would end up being bankrupt. Now to avoid all this fuss you need to register your Credit Card/Debit Card with PayPal because they will help you to purchase anything online without the need of your credit card/details to be revealed to the Online Store you’re buying from.
