It's very popular and very safe for buying stuff through it. However I have had an extremely bad experience with it as a seller, they upgraded me to a business account therefore charging me more, then they limited my account because apparently I was near to receiving 1600 when it fact it was around 200. I also got scammed through their system by a buyer and since then I have tried closing my account but they won't let me.

You will have no problems buying things and all your card details are secure. It's a good system it's just a shame sellers can easily get screwed over.

What would you be using it for?

I've used it for Ebay and never had a problem (knock on wood). My info has never been given out by them either,they're a very secure, probably the most secure way for transactions.

You just have to make sure if you get emails from them that ask for any personalinfo, those are scam emails and not from paypal.

They'll keep all your info secure, like mousey said it's VERY important NEVER open links from people claiming to be ebay or paypal. Official emails from ebay and paypal will never ask you to confirm your details, if you do click on a link check the url to make sure it's ebay.co.uk or paypal.co.uk. Ebay is quite fun just make sure you don't get carried away with the bids :)

Paypal is secure. I've used it for several different things, including to do donate to the board. I like it.
