Buying things online should be easy and intuitive, without too many complicated forms to fill in. As well as a user-friendly online shop, payment also needs to be simple and intuitive. At PayPal, they're all too aware of this! No need to plough through endless online forms – your bank account and/or credit card details are kept in a single digital wallet:   

Guaranteed flexibility

Buying things online should be easy and intuitive, without too many complicated forms to fill in. As well as a user-friendly online shop, payment also needs to be simple and intuitive. At PayPal, they're all too aware of this! No need to plough through endless online forms – your bank account and/or credit card details are kept in a single digital wallet: 

  • You only need to fill in your payment details once: when you link your payment cards to your PayPal account
  • Then you just have to select the payment method when you pay. You check your details and confirm the payment
  • You can also make free transfers from your bank account to your PayPal account and use your PayPal balance to pay
  • All you need is your e-mail address and your PayPal password

Secure payment

Besides speed and simplicity, security is also very important for online payments. Whenever you buy something from an online shop, you want to be sure that your credit card details and other sensitive data don't end up in the wrong hands. With PayPal, you can be confident thanks to the following measures:

  • PayPal offers you extra payment protection by keeping your personal details private. The business receiving your money never gets to see your bank or credit card details
  • Because your details are safely stored in your PayPal account, you never need to enter them
  • PayPal's advanced fraud prevention technology continuously scans your transactions for suspicious activity
  • Your purchases are protected by PayPal Buyer Protection

PayPal stort twee willekeurige bedragen op je bankrekening, tussen 0,01 en 0,99 euro. Deze stortingen zijn op kosten van PayPal en zullen binnen twee à drie werkdagen op je bankrekening verschijnen. Als je de stortingen hebt ontvangen, volg je deze drie stappen: 

  1. Klik op Wallet.
  2. Selecteer de bankrekening en klik op Bevestigen.
  3. Voer de twee bedragen in die op je rekening zijn gestort en klik op Verzenden. 

Als je de juiste bedragen hebt ingevoerd, wordt je bankrekening bevestigd en kun je betalingen uitvoeren.

Kredietkaart bevestigen

De koppeling van een kredietkaart is nog iets eenvoudiger:

  1. Log in op je PayPal-account.
  2. Klik in het menu op je Portemonnee.
  3. Klik op Creditcard toevoegen.
  4. Vul je gegevens in op het daarvoor bestemde formulier.
  5. Klik op Opslaan. Je adres wordt nu door PayPal gecontroleerd. Dat kan enkele minuten duren. Eenmaal gecontroleerd, is de kredietkaart aan je account gekoppeld en heb je een basisaccount.
