This is a spin off of another thread Just wondering what all everyone uses PayPal for? I use it OFTEN and for way more then for eBay! My parents (and inlaws) send me money often (as gifts) via PayPal. I also send others money via PayPal - like if they are selling something, Etc. Someone once told them they could Western Union money to me. Well that costs more then PayPal!! When I list things on our base Classified ads, I say that I accept PayPal! I much prefer that over a check that might bounce! Also, when a group of friends want to collect money for a gift or charity, we all use PayPal! I just like it sooo much better then money orders and checks, because I never go to a physical bank! I love PayPal and have had ZERO problems with them! So, what else do you use it for?
