How to Set Up PayPal on EBay

PayPal is currently one of the most authentic ways of sending and accepting payments online. It is basically a website, which provides its customers the service of sending or receiving the payments, without any fear of fraud or loss. For instance, if you are a seller at eBay and want to sell any product. Then you can set up your PayPal account at eBay, to receive the payments.

When a buyer accepts your product through PayPal, you will not get the payment right away.  You will get it after the buyer gets the product that you sent him. As a result, the buyer will also be assured that he will get the exact product he ordered. If he does not get the product he ordered, his amount will be refunded to him, and you will get nothing. If he gets the product, PayPal will forward you the money. So, if you regularly sell or buy things there you should seriously think about setting up the PayPal account at eBay.
