Introduction: Hacks #10-16

So, you’ve just bought a genuine Zapp Brannigan Atomic Ray Gun on eBay, and now it’s time to pony up the dough. You might be able to mail a personal check, but most sellers won’t take them (and when they do, there’s an extra week to wait for them to clear). Money orders and cashier’s checks usually cost money and take several days to arrive, and then there’s still no protection if the seller takes the ray gun and runs. Some sellers accept credit cards directly, but few provide online ordering or other safe means of sending your payment information.

This is where many buyers are introduced to PayPal. With a few clicks and usually no typing, you can send large or small sums of money across the country or around the world almost instantaneously and get fraud protection while doing it.
