Do you pay with Pay Pal or credit cards?

I am setting up a website and wondering if I should use a paypal account to accept payments from or use an alternative. The thing that would sway me to paypal is if people actually prefer paying through their paypal accounts as opposed to paying with a card. What do you usually do when you buy something online?

Thanks :)

  • Paypal ROCKS. I use it on eBay (natch) and even on Walgreens for our Christmas cards.

  • I feel safer using paypal because my credit number is NEVER given out. Also, it is easier to open a dispute with paypal.

  • I've used both online, paypal and credit cards. I don't think anyone will have a problem if you put paypal on it though. It's free to set up an account through them and easy, plus they could use their credit card on paypal anyhow.

  • I use paypal and never had any problems with it. You can add a credit card to paypal as well as another payment option.

    AlertPay is another one you can use.
