Is PayPal secure?
The security of your information, transactions, and money is the core of Paypal's business and top priority.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128 bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to PayPal's site, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches Paypal, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. Paypal's servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are never directly connected to the Internet, so your private information stays private ans totally secured.
Consumers may choose from a variety of payment methods:
- Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express credit card or debit cards.
- Direct withdrawal from your checking account using eChecks (must be a Paypal member for this feature).
What it does it mean that Virtual Seeds is "Verified"?
To become Verified, a PayPal member must provide PayPal with proof of a valid open checking account at a bank or other financial institution. Because these institutions are required by law to screen account holders, PayPal's verification process increases security when you pay parties you do not know. Please note that PayPal's verification system does not constitute an endorsement of a member, nor a guarantee of a member's business practices. You should always consider other indicators when evaluating members, including length of PayPal membership and reputation scores (on eBay or other auction sites, if applicable).
