Is PayPal Safe?
Is PayPal Safe
Is PayPal Safe? I have been using PayPal since the early 2000's and I have not had any issues with them whatsoever. Based on my personal experience,
I would say PayPal is safe to use for both sellers and buyers as they follow appropriate security protocols such as using two factor verification methods.

PayPal customer service has been excellent and always willing to help you solve any issues you may have. Their customer support phone number is hard to find on their website. To find it, you need to do an online search for "PayPal customer support number." I just did a search for the sake of this short article and this is the number that popped up: 1 (888) 221-1161. I called PayPal using this number and they answered.

Some people may not agree with me as PayPal has held funds for many business owners and that's because PayPal frowns upon MLM and pyramid schemes. PayPal has held funds from me at times but in small amounts and that's due a customer requesting a refund or claiming that a product has not been delivered or is defective. Once the issue is resolved, they either refund the customer his or her money or the funds are released to my account. In most cases, I'm the one who gives the customer their refund as soon as I can to avoid problems.

My advice is to stay away from PayPal only if you are working with programs that resemble a pyramid scheme. If you sell products, your money will be safe.

PayPal has over 200 million users and so far, I haven't heard anything negative about security breaches. Companies this big are targets for hackers and PayPal has done a great job keeping them at bay.

PayPal is a great platform to do business with and if you don't have an account with them you should get one. As mentioned above, PayPal has millions of users which makes it trustworthy.

Moving funds in and out of PayPal is easy. It takes about 3 to 4 days for your money to clear and faster for those who are established and their account is in good standing. When customers make purchases from you, your money is available immediately.

Your personal information is safe when you send money with PayPal to other people you purchased products from. The only personal information they will have from you is your name and your address. The rest of the information is related to the product such as the name of the product you purchased, the quantity, the price, the transaction ID, Etc.

PayPal certainly believes it's safe to transmit money on its platform. This is what they say on their website, "When you send a payment using PayPal, the recipient won't receive sensitive financial information like your credit card or bank account number. This way, you don't have to worry about paying people you don't know."

Hope this short article helped clear your fears about getting an account with PayPal. The only thing you need to do is create a difficult to guess password; do not share your it with anyone. A strong and safe password should contain letters, both lower and upper case, numbers, and symbols such as !@#$%^&*().
