1. PayPal enables you to send payments quickly and securely online using a credit card or bank account. 2. When you select PayPal as the payment method, you go to the PayPal site, where you can send your payment. 3. Advantages: • Payment is traceable. You can trace the status of your payment using your PayPal account. • Payment does not require you to use your credit card online (you can transfer directly from your bank account). we can't see your credit card number (it is safely encrypted through PayPal's server), which limits the risk of unauthorized use.
