dear gamers,
my parents have always been touchy

about credit cards and the internet, hacking and all that stuff, and from

what i heard on the first audioforum some of you had payple

accounts?
Basically what i want to know is what website they're on, how

you use them, and how much money you can have in them.
thx very much.
best

wishes.

Yes, Paypal seems to be the safest method of paying on the internet. You

need a credit card, but you don't pay with the number of the credit card,

so hacking is very difficult. And, you have a password that makes it safer.


I haven't heard about any problems with paypal so far. But you need a

credit card number anyway.

Good luck!

Hello,
PayPal can be set up in many ways. I use it to perform online

transactions and it's been pretty reliable so far. You set one up (for

free) at www.paypal.com. You will need a bank account (I think it must be US

or one of the supported countries) to accept orders. You can then add a

credit card to the paypal account and pay people using paypal, but the money

will be withdrawn from the card. At least that's how I understand it. I

have never used a credit card with paypal; I use their EBank version, for

which you will need a bank account.
HTH,
Munawar
