What is PayPal?

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

There are lots of other things you can do with PayPal, including printing shipping labels and packing slips for your items, and paying your eBay fees. Find out more.
