Why use PayPal?
PayPal safeguards your credit card information against identity theft and fraud by never sharing your credit card details with the seller. We also offer 100% unauthorised coverage for unauthorised payments sent from your PayPal account. This makes PayPal the safer, easier, and smarter way to pay for your online purchases. Best of all, it’s free for buyers! Learn more about PayPal.
Remember, before you buy, always check to see if your seller offers PayPal. Simply look for the PayPal logo in your search results or payment details of your desired item.
Not only is PayPal seamlessly integrated in eBay.com.sg’s Checkout process, it’s also available on search result pages and your item pages, so that buyers know you accept PayPal. Plus, you can track your PayPal payments now from one central location by either logging in to 'My eBay' on eBay.com.sg or to the ‘History’ of your PayPal account.
PayPal is convenient and fast, allowing you to get paid anywhere, anytime. You can also accept credit cards at low cost – pay only when you receive money. Unlike merchant credit card accounts, there’s no set-up or monthly fees.
