What is PayPal? How to make a Paypal Account for sending and receiving money?
PayPal is an online platform with the help of which you can send and receive payments, then whether you are sending to an individual, receiving from an individual or seeking refund from a shopping website. So basically PayPal helps in sending and receiving payments across worldwide but for this one should be having a PayPal account which is linked with your bank account. Almost all the online learning websites make payments through PayPal. A part from that, suppose you are in India and I have to send money from outside, what is the easiest way for me? Either I will send it through western union or I will transfer in bank account. But in PayPal I will ask only your PayPal I’d from you. You will tell me your PayPal I’d which ofcourse will be a simple email I’d. This I’d is entered in my PayPal account and I will confirm how much amount needs t be sent and by simply click on send, you will receive the money in your account. Neither did I have to ask for any details, nor did I have to go out of my house to send money nor did you have to go out to get the money because the money will go directly to your bank account as soon as it comes in your PayPal account. So basically in this way PayPal makes your transactions easy. Sometimes, you’re shopping on a site, then you have to pay by card, then at that time you have to enter many details such as card number, expiry date and cvv but if instead of this if you pay with PayPal you wont have to enter any detail. Moreover all your account details are completely secure with PayPal.
