PayPal allows any business or individual with an email address to securely, conveniently and cost-effectively send and receive payments online. Our network builds on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards to create a global, real-time payment solution. We deliver a product ideally suited for small businesses, online merchants, individuals and others currently underserved by traditional payment mechanisms.
You don’t have to type in your card details and personal information.
All you need is your email address and password, or mobile number and PIN. No need to remember all your card details, cryptic codes or secret handshakes.
Pay instantly for online purchases when you link a card or your bank account to your PayPal account. That way you can chose how to pay, and you never have to worry about keeping money in your PayPal account.
Shop with peace of mind, we protect your eligible purchases. If an eligible item doesn’t show up, or turns out to be different than described, we’ll help sort things out with the seller. Plus, all your financial information is stored within your account.
More than 18 million UK shoppers have a PayPal account.
