What can I do with PayPal?


PayPal is a fast and safer way to send and receive payments online without sharing your financial information. With PayPal, you can:

Shop online with millions of merchants. Pay online with your PayPal balance, bank account, or credit card. Check out quickly no need to enter your payment and shipping information. Get paid for what you sell on eBay, on your own website, or in online classifieds and forums. Donate to your favorite charity. Use your credit card and earn rewards.

At PayPal, your financial security is our highest priority. We use the latest anti-fraud technology, and youre 100% protected against unauthorized payments sent from your account.

I do not have a PayPal account and my debit or credit card is being denied. Why?
PayPal's process for accepting credit cards payments is rigorous. This helps prevent people from paying for things with stolen or unauthorized cards. The screening process is complex and, on rare occasions, it will impact valid cards.

If you know your card is valid but your payment still doesnt go through, we suggest that you try another credit card or try your transaction again later.

Another option is to pay with your bank account. Paying with your bank account is a quick and easy way to keep track of spending and avoid using your credit card. If you do online banking, it usually just takes a few minutes to link your bank account to your PayPal account. To start, just go to the PayPal website and click Sign Up at the top of the page.

Once youve linked your bank, using it to pay for things is secure. Merchants get paid but they never see your bank account details. They wont even know what bank you use.

Does PayPal prohibit transactions for pyramid, matrix, and multi-level marketing programs?
Yes. To determine if transactions violate this policy, PayPal considers these factors:

Commissions offered to recruit new members Requirements for new distributors to purchase costly inventory or "start-up kits" Members' profits derived from recruiting new members or from the sales of newly-recruited members ("downline") rather than their own sales Payouts from fees or contributions paid by new or existing members Money paid into the system that is significantly greater than money paid out Unrealistic or unsupported promises regarding profits or return on investment Percentage of the company's goods sold by a non-distributor Flow of money derived from new members predominantly moves "upline" Preservation of the business rests on the exponential growth of new members or customers Offers of speculative real estate or non-development property Business functioning as an auto-surf investment program or a high-yield investment program Warnings from governmental agencies about the business model

PayPal defines these programs as follows. Pyramid schemes Existing members receive payouts funded by new payments into the program from new member fees or existing member contributions.

Matrix programs Individuals pay primarily to be added to a waiting list for a product. The individual at the top of the list receives the product only after a set number of people have joined after that individual. "Get rich quick" schemes Include any type of self-employment, start-up business, or investment opportunity where the claims of profit or returns on investment are unrealistic or unsupported. Multi-level marketing programs Individuals receive proceeds from their sales of goods or services and from those of recruited members. PayPal generally prohibits multi-level marketing programs that offer payouts to both the seller and the individual(s) who recruited the seller. PayPal reserves the right to permit certain multi-level marketing programs at its sole discretion.
