PayPal Guide

What is PayPal?

Owned by eBay, PayPal is an online payment system that aims to make shopping on the internet safer and easier. It also reduces your risk of becoming a victim of credit card fraud. There are over 20 million PayPal accounts in the UK alone, making it the most popular payment processing solution on the web.

How does it work

You don’t have to signup for PayPal account to use online payments (not unless you want to!).

Just like other online payment gateways you will be prompted for your credit/debit card, email address, phone number etc. Your payment will then be processed.

Can anything go wrong?

If there are any problems with your purchase – for example, if you don’t receive the goods/services as described or if you don’t receive the goods at all – PayPal offers you protection.

File a ‘buyer complaint’ and your payment to the seller will be frozen until the dispute is settled. You credit card company will then issue you a ‘chargeback’.

PayPal operates round-the-clock, anti-fraud and anti-phishing monitoring, but remain vigilant. There have been cases of emails from fraudsters posing as PayPal, telling you that your account has been hacked. Make sure you don’t give out your email or password to anyone.

My son has had Michael as a tennis coach for a few years now. Michael is an excellent, skillful coach. He always goes the extra mile with a pupil and the encouragement he gives shows in their enjoyment. My son, now 13, looks up to Michael and I can only affirm he is an excellent role model to any young person.

Michael's tennis coaching is truly inspirational & my kids are loving the tailored focus he puts into each session. Helen's Bay will really benefit from his high energy approach that motivates, yet provides a fun environment for young players to develop and hone their tennis skills.
