What are the benefits of using PayPal?

PayPal is the faster, more secure way to pay online. It lets you pay for your favorite things at millions of online stores in the U.S. and across 203 global markets—all without the hassle of converting currency. So it’s just as easy to know how much you’re spending as it is to spend it. It's free to sign up for a PayPal account.

In addition to one-time purchases, PayPal is also the faster, simpler way to make recurring payments to all your monthly bills and subscriptions.

Secure: whether you are paying bills, sending money or making a purchase, PayPal works hard to keep your financial information secure.

Fast: no need to enter all your financial information every time you shop. Speed through checkout with PayPal.

Easy: not only is signing up for PayPal free, but you can also make purchases and send money to family and friends in the U.S. using your PayPal balance or bank account, at no extra cost. See All Fees.
