Paypal do not charge you for sending money but they do charge you when you receive payments.
No. It is a third party the insulates your banking and credit card information from the other party in a transaction.
Well my friend, Paypal was founded in Palo Alto, California, USA in 1998
Not necessarily, you can get an account for free but must fund it to buy stuff from some one else using their pay pal. Also you may have to pay if you upgrade you account to h…ave better benefits. However you may not need this upgrade.
It depends which courier is used to transport the package. For example I recently ordered a coffee machine from Amazon. Using the Royal Mail website - I was able to track it f…rom the point it was packaged at Amazon's warehouse - to delivery at my door.

There isn't one, it is completely free. There is no charge to create an account through Paypal. There are only cost incurred once the account receives money for an item that w…as sold. The fee that is charged when that happens is 2.9%.
The password for your Paypal account should be known only to you ! We in the Wiki community will not help you break the law by hacking into someone else's account ! I fully …agree and support the answer provided above if that's the kind of question you were asking. I just wanted to add something extra in case your question was about the requirements of a password that Paypal will accept. When creating an account for Paypal, if you point your cursor in the password field, a small popup appears and gives you the following tips: - Use 8 to 20 characters. - Don't use your name or email. - Use lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols. - Create a password that's hard to guess. (if, for example, you make your password baseball because you like the sport, and a friend tries to access your account, baseball would be easy to guess.)
It depends on the country. If you are located in the United States, it is by adding a bank account and receiving two deposit amounts under $1.00 each which you will not know t…he amounts until they show up on your bank statement. Think of these like a code. Enter them into your account to prove that you are the account holder. Outside of the United States you may have the option of verifying by credit card. You will have to do a process similar to the above but by credit card. Regardless, it will tell you in your account how to verify your account and you cannot miss it as it will press you to do it.
The only thing that can be do if the PayPal IPN does not work properly was contacted the PayPal customer service and ask for their help regarding this.
The 'buyer' doesn't - but the 'seller' pays a fee for accepting Paypal payments.
