PayPal is a good payment method; secure, easy and widely available but PayPal credit adds great flexibility. You can get 4 months interest free on payments of £150 or more which is perfect for unexpected or more expensive purchases. It very easy to apply for and can be managed with ease through the app or online.

Paypals flexibility has proven very useful in day to day situations!
From paying a friend over a ticket to purchasing goods online and having their protection insurance for any troublesome sellers.
Their function to transfer and exchange currencies is also helpful when gifting money to a family member abroad or having them buy some regional items on your behalf!
Top notch stuff!

Convenient way to pay for things online

With a fully validated account it has been a handy way to send money in USD to family overseas. I usually compare rates with Western Union to pick best option. Main use however has been with buying and selling on ebay and for paying for small items...

With a fully validated account it has been a handy way to send money in USD to family overseas. I usually compare rates with Western Union to pick best option. Main use however has been with buying and selling on ebay and for paying for small items when purchasing online. I've not had to use the buyer protection so will not comment on that part of the service.

I bought a laptop which is £1000 way more than my usual spend and had a phone call from them about the unusual high price purchase the next day and the man was very polite and after having a chat I was glad that my account was flagged and they checked with me the account holder that this was a genuine purchase and not some scammer who had hacked me and was trying to clear my account without my knowledge. I feel safe when I use PayPal for purchases knowing they have my back if the spend is a bit more than usual Keep up the good work as genuine customers will respect your due diligence for the safety of their accounts

PayPal is perfect for shopping internationally or paying/getting paid people around the world. But It's not ideal if those are recurring interaction as it charges you with every transfer and takes time to deposit/take out the money. Some times those charges are unavoidable as e-commerce websites force you into a pay pal transfer and they don't usually provide alternatives. The amount charged for the service can be seen as unfair as well.
