Pay without sharing your bank account or credit card information.
Entering private data like your credit card information on a website always contains the risk of others gaining unauthorized access to your data, and then misusing it in your name. The easiest way to protect yourself from identity theft is simply not to share your personal and sensitive data with others. When you pay with PayPal you don't have to share your data with the seller. This way your information won't get into the wrong hands and you're safe.
