What is PayPal?

PayPal is eBay's preferred way to pay. It is a system that lets anyone with an email address send and receive online payments securely using their credit card or bank account. eBay members can use PayPal to pay for items on eBay quickly and easily.

There are lots of other things you can do with PayPal, including printing postage labels and packing slips for your items, and paying your eBay fees. To find out more about PayPal, go to www.paypal.co.uk/uk or www.paypal.ie/ie.
