Never had a problem with paypal and its one of the safest ways to buy online period. Your alot better off using paypal to pay for things rather than straight up putting in your card anywhere.

Very safe, especially for buyers. They are very reliable, just rip you off a little when transferring money, but they are completely legit and don't do anything with your bank info.

The whole point behind PayPal is they process the transaction so that you don't have to give your credit card info or bank account info to a bunch of third-party companies.

PayPal is a service of eBay and considering eBay to this day is still the largest auction website online and a publicly traded company I would believe it's safe to say it's very safe to use PayPal, if it wasn't why would so many people still be using it then.

I had a problem with them, but it's not that they're not safe, quite opposite actually. They suspended my account because suspected fraud. I had to go a long way to unblock it. :/
