What is pay pal and can I use my gift card to buy stuff offline using paypal? What is pay pal exactly???

How Does Pay pal Work For Receiving Money?From Credit Forum:
How does pay pal work for receiving money? I've never used pay pal for receiving money before. How does it work when it comes to making transactions with customers over the Internet that I've never met. I want my info to stay as confidential as possible Thanks!
Answer: Your info is safe. However, there are lots of messy rules about payment disputes you may want to read up on before you decide to go this route. If at any time in the first 90 days the buyer decides that what they purchased is missing, broken, or not exactly as described, Pay pal is legally allowed to take what they paid out of your Pay pal account (or your bank account if your Pay pal balance is too low). So, long story short: make sure you can live up to your item and sale promises in every detail, ship as perfectly as possible, buy the shipping insurance, and delivery confirmation.
How Can I Make A Pay pal Account And Credit Money To Account And Pay From That ?Is Credit Card Red For That ?From Personal Finance Forum:
How can I make a Pay pal account and credit money to account and pay from that ?Is credit card red for that ? I had made a pay pal account from pay pal site giving only my home address and e-mail address.But they are not telling clearly how to credit money to that account and withdraw from that account.Will anyone explain all those procedures in Pay Pal system in simple terms please.I dint have a credit card or neither want to take one.
Answer: Pay Pal requires that you have a checking account (with money in it, of course) and/or a credit card. You can transfer money from your checking account into your Pay Pal account electronically. I use Pay Pal with EBay. It is secure. When I purchase something on EBay, they take it directly from my checking account, put it into my Pay Pal account, and then pay the vendor from my Pay Pal account when the merchandise is shipped. Hope this helps.
How Can I Make A Pay pal Account And Credit Money To Account And Pay From That.Is Credit Card Red For That ?From Personal Finance Forum:
How can I make a Pay pal account and credit money to account and pay from that.Is credit card red for that ? I had made a pay pal account from pay pal site giving only my home address and e-mail address.But they are not telling clearly how to credit money to that account and withdraw from that account.Will anyone explain all those procedures in Pay Pal system simple terms please.I dint have a credit card or neither want to take one.
Answer: if you don't have a credit card, then you need to have a verified pay pal account. To do that, you need to click on "verify account" in the account system. They will send a very small transaction to your bank account (two actually) which will be used to verify that you in fact have access to your bank account. In other words, you will go to your bank and get a statement. It will have two pay pal additions to your account. Log back in to pay pal and give them the exact amounts of the two transactions. That verifies to them that you have access to the account. Then you can transfer money to and from your bank account to pay pal. It takes 24-48 hours per transaction I believe, and it is free. If security concerns you, consider this: Pay pal is a FDIC insured banking system. Having a pay pal account is the same as having a bank account with on line banking. Using their system is as secure as using the system at your bank. The only security issue they have is that some people use "phishing" scams to get your password by emailing spoof emails that LOOK like pay pal but are not. All you have to do if you are emailed something from pay pal is do NOT click on any link. Close the email, open a browser and log in to pay pal directly. Anything they email to you will be on your account as well. Hope that helps.

How do I cancel a pay pal transfer from my bank account to my pay pal account? How do I cancel a pay pal transfer from my bank account to my pay pal account? The transaction is still pending, and I need to cancel it, how would I go about doing that?
Answer: I would call your bank or Pay Pal. PayPal's Customer Service Helpline: 020 8605 3000 Press option 1. Then there will be an automated system where a man talks. He will then ask you about your phone number that is verified on your account, your account number details such as security codes and then just follow instructions from there. The reason why I recommend you to call them because they know whats happening to your account like the transactions and any funds that are being transferred to your Pay Pal account. And when you ring up they'll have all your details straight away. Or as an Alternative Log into your actual bank account (not PayPal) and see if there are any transactions that are pending, or if there is a "Stop A Payment" or "Stop A Transaction" link. I cannot help you though because you have not specified which bank you are with and there are not enough details in your question. But please do try and give my instructions a go.
