I pretty much only use Paypal to pay for things. I linked up my credit card to it so if I ever need to pay for something online and they accept Paypal I use it so the merchant does not get my credit card details. I have never used it for an online casino either as my Neteller and Skrill accounts are for that.

I have been paid for stuff on ebay using Paypal but I just let the money sit in there and use it next time I need to pay for something. I don't think I have ever withdrawn from it so I can't help you there with how long they take etc.

I use PayPal quite extensively, and find it to be a great solution for conducting transactions. I have a PayPal MasterCard which is linked to my account. I love it as I earn cash back when I use it like a debit card, can take cash out of ATMs, and can transfer money to my bank in only about 1-2 days time (if the amount is greater than $400... if it is under I just use the ATM).

Of course I am using these features from the USA and don't know what they offer in your home country. Still, I love it and recommend it to anybody.

I love paypal - their service is seamless. I have never had any issues, and it is very secure. I use for when I buy/sell on ebay, and a lot of the money making apps for phones pay out thew Paypal. I recommend it. Transfers to your bank account are very timely as well.

PayPal is ok if your using ebay, I would only accept currency in what ever your local currency is, because the exchange rate paypal uses is crap. As well I know for American citizens paypal will actually issue a debit mastercard, not sure about EU though

I have a Paypal card. I use it to buy things on Ebay or receive money from Ebay. I've used it to send money to friends. I have not had any problems with it. I like earning money back when I use it as a debit card.

I have a paypal card, too, and I use paypal for my Ebay business. I receive discounts on shipping which is nice. I had it before Ebay, too. Just convenient to have. Can send money to family and friends without fees, too. No problems, and I have been signed up for many years. Smile

One tip I have that I only figured out the other day after having a Paypal account for years is that you can get a free app for your phone to use as an authenticator on your account (like those little security token things that some banks give you). The thing is they don't make it obvious that you can get a free one and instead they try to steer you towards paying $30 for a token. The app is called "VIP Access" and it is developed by Symantec but it works fine with Paypal once you set it up with your account.

Good tip CL-Ed. I didn't know that app was available.
