What is Paypal?

PayPal is an online payment service, enabling anyone in more than 30 countries to send money to anyone else with an email address. PayPal is free for consumers, but costs are involved for businesses. PayPal fees are a sore point among some sellers.

If you prefer, there are a number of PayPal alternatives that you can choose from which offer the same or similar level of service and have lesser fees.
