PayPal vs sage etc. Does just PayPal our buyers off?

So Iím sitting here thinking (sadly I know) about PayPal and how Iíve found a lot of people really donít like PayPal or have had issues with them.

So my question is do PayPal only checkouts put you off and maybe make you abandon your basket and go elsewhere?

Just the opposite for me.

Itís quick and offers excellent buyer protection and I use it if available.

I find it a drag filling in my card details compared to a couple of clicks via PayPal.

Most big vendors offer both but I donít know of the costs involved.

PayPal is very quick and easy.

Having used it for years I have no issues using it when a vendor accepts it.

I'd be happier using PayPal than putting my card details in somewhere new.

I can't remember having an issue with PayPal and I've used them for years.

For me I use paypal a lot however if a company I like uses card I normally choose this option as I don't like Paypal taking money for free away from the business

Don't know how much they get charged but you do know companies get charged by their banks for credit card purchases as well or is it just PayPal you dont want the money to go to?

I think the issues people were having was more as a seller when they were sending goods and the buyer was either saying it wasn't received or it was damaged then lodging a PayPal claim.

I don't mind PayPal and like it for its ease which isn't always good for me as if I'm honest i probably buy more through it as I can just log in from my chair rather than get up and go find my credit card. Only downside I've found is my wife knows my password and uses it as well

Thanks for the input

I cannot understand why people wonít use them. As a buyer itís great, as a seller not so much having been on both sides during a dislike. As a seller they are ruthless as the protection is heavily geared around protecting the buyer.

Donít like PayPal at all, got rid of it a while ago.
Credit cards give enough protection, if I trust the company and itís products I pay mostimes with a debit card.
Yes PayPal puts me off, big style.

I used to get so many messages from PayPal that their security was undermined and changed my password weekly.
