Is PayPal safe?

We keep all your information secure. For example, when you use PayPal to send a payment, the recipient doesn’t receive any sensitive financial details like your credit card or bank account number. You don’t have to worry about paying someone online.  

Additionally, when you pay with PayPal on any website, you’re covered by PayPal Purchase Protection. We’ll help you get a full refund if an item doesn’t arrive or if the seller didn’t describe the item accurately.    

We also offer security for sellers. When you use PayPal to get paid, you’re covered by PayPal Seller Protection for eligible claims, chargebacks, or reversals.
