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.

Security of Account

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

I like using Paypal as I know it is secure especially when you are buying online or sending some money to a friend or buying from an unknown business.I also like the fact that you can have Paypal credit which gives you 4 months interest free for purchases over £150.

Protection from bad sellers

I love PayPal - I had a bad experience with an eBay seller who went very quiet after accepting my payment, and never sent the item. When I reported it to PayPal, they did an investigation and refunded me the money promptly. Wonderful service!

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.
