Paypal is an online payment solution developed to enhance commercial transactions over the internet. the payment processor is accessed via the website http://www.paypal.com ( although there also exists the extension http://www.paypal.us, for U.S.A residents, and http://www.paypal.co.uk for residents of the United Kingdom).
It's safer, it's faster and it's everywhere. Use PayPal to shop at
thousands of web-sites, knowing that your financial details are never
shared. These are strong features that stand them out of the pack of online payment processors.
The website has a simple layout that is easy for anyone to use, without much difficulty. There are six main buttons when you land on the main page of the Paypal website: Home, Personal, Business, Safety advice, Where Can I Shop?, and Help. these buttons further take you to other areas of interest on the website.
The Homepage gives you access to the basic things you need to know about this payment processor while the other buttons provide you with access to the various avenues through which you can make the most of the website. For an issue of concern, you have a Contact Us page to help you get in touch with the website product /services, and support team.
Paypal.com presently has a membership that covers most part of the world ( although for reasons best known to them, some countries cannot use their services). Over 200 million accounts in use on this website; with successful payments nearing the million mark as at today.
My only concern about this website is it's discrimination against people from certain countries, which to me is not in line with the spirit of making the internet a border-less, non-discriminatory, global community.
A strong plus is their strong security features and high-handedness when issues of breaches occur amongst their clients. If you happen to leave in their approved region, i would recommend them for all your online commercial transactions... but it will be better if you have more than one online payment processor!
