Sign up to pay securely and have all your cards and rewards in one place when you shop online.
Having a PayPal account is like getting a digital wallet that protects your data, and helps you get more out of your purchases. Not only does it allow you to shop and pay without typing in your payment card details each time, you keep your financial details stored and unshared on an encrypted network. And if you’re still wondering why you should get one, here are more reasons to:
Flash deals and tickets get snapped up fast. Typing your credit or debit card details is slow and time-consuming. PayPal helps you score more buys with speedier checkouts.
You won’t need to look for your wallet or card while shopping online with PayPal. And with One Touch™, you can go straight to review and pay.
Each time you disclose your financial details is another exposure to risk. Using PayPal keeps your financial information more securely encrypted no matter which website you shop on.
PayPal lets you link all your cards to one place and choose your preferred card to pay. You can still earn reward points* for purchases.
With PayPal accepted in more than 200 countries and regions, you can shop brands across the globe and pay in your preferred currency.
