PayPal is designed from the ground up to be one of the safest ways to send money online. Unlike other financial institutions, our payments are sent without sharing financial information. In fact, PayPal never shares your financial information with or sells it to merchants.
How it works.
Your sensitive financial information is securely stored on our servers.
When you use PayPal to pay online, you provide only your PayPal email address.
The merchants/retailers receive payment from PayPal without ever seeing your financial information.
