online shopping question – a thank you

Thanks so much to everybody who voted and gave personal experiences in my previous entry about shopping online and Paypal, and extra big thanks to those who have or build shops and weighed in with experiences.

I want to clarify one thing — there was a trick question in my poll. You do not have to create a Paypal account to use it to buy something with a credit card. You used to have to, and I’ve been finding that a lot of people do not know that the policy has changed. So go and buy things from small independent shops and don’t let Paypal stop you.

Thanks again!

    100% correct. Both methods work well and are relatively safe if used at reliable shops

    YOU are a sly dog.

    Sorry. And maybe this is just me being confused – what do you mean when you say you don’t have to create a PayPal account? I can see that you don’t have to put money in the PayPal account in order to use a CC but you did have to signup and um… create an account (to my mind).
