The online payment method par excellence
Online shopping is the in-thing. We hardly go to physical stores anymore because we prefer the comfortable option: spend our money from our sofa. Whether on webs or applications that sell more specific products such as clothes, computer or household applications or on platforms of the likes of Amazon or Alibaba where we can find almost anything.
The best way to pay on our phone.
But when it comes to paying for those purchases on the Internet, we're always wary of providing the data of our credit card just in case, especially if it's the first time. And that's where PayPal comes in, the safest and most popular online payment method in the world, that appeared as a subsidiary of eBay and that now works as an independent payment platform.
How to use PayPal on my phone?
In this case, we're introducing you to the mobile application of this service for iPhone and iPad. Using it as simple as creating an account (personal, premier or business), inputting your personal details (name, email, date of birth, address, etc.), and associating a bank card to the latter. From there on you can carry out actions such as the following:
- Pay in online stores in a totally automatic manner.
- Receive payments or transfers from your friends or send money thanks to PayPal.Me.
- Check your balance, verify your credit cards or associated bank accounts, look up all the transactions made.
- Make payments directly from your phone in physical stores.
What fees does PayPal charge me?
Creating a PayPal account is totally free, as well as using its most basic services. In other words, you won't pay a cent to make online purchases or transfer or receive money from your friends (provided that you use your current balance and not a credit card). However, if you're going to use the platform as a vendor that wants to earn money with your sales, you'll have to pay a tiny commission.
