Can someone pay me via credit card and have the funds put in to my PayPal account? Is it secure so that I don't actually see their credit card information? Is there a special link that I would link them to do this with?

Yes. People can pay you with a major credit card. Yes it is secure. Paypal processes payments for thousands upon thousands of businesses. When you setup your paypal account it will walk you through creating payment options for people. You can create buttons that you add to a website. You can create links that you place in an email. You can create invoices. You can create recurring payments. You can send people payment requests. There are plenty of options. And it is all secure.

They will take a small percentage of any payments you get paid to you.

I agree with you PTTed! It is more secure when you sent payment with Paypal.

@The OP, you should consider to pay directly on Paypal than paying on websites integrated Paypal on their checkout forms, your credit cards will be more secure because they could store your credit card info.

Well I will be accepting the payments. So I will probably go the rout of sending invoices and then having the user pay that way via credit card so it goes directly through PayPal. Thanks for the ideas.

If you don't have to don't send an invoice. Just setup a PayPal button on your site. When your customer clicks the button to buy he/she has the option to use a credit card.

The one exception is if you're setting up a subscription. The customer will then need a PayPal account unless you wish to Pay a $20.00 fee per month. I don't recall what the service is called. I'm an in home computer tutor and virus removal specialist here in Honolulu Hawaii. I have a remote service and several of my clients are senior citizens. The less they or any client for that matter has to do to purchase your product or service the better the chance your customer will purchase.

Are PayPal Prepaid Mastercards really an option for those users without a bank account?

They absolutely are sir,

I helped a close relative setup and get a prepaid PayPal MasterCard. It words great. When she needs money I can send it to her PayPal account and she can transfer the money to her MasterCard. It's a great resource for income challenged people. I run The Christian Business Network Forum and have therefore looked into this quite a bit.

PatrickT,

You ask a really good question and it has two answers depending upon what side of PayPal you are on.

As a Vendor: And as a caveat I have not used this service as a vendor but have read through all their documentation. Setting up a vendor account using their prepaid cards does not have any advantages as far as fees that I can see and in fact has an additional fee based on the issuance of the card and the balance amount. The big disadvantage as a Vendor is from what I read you are not a verified account. That could turn off some purchasers as they will not see that verified status next to your business. I have had my bank account verified now for over 7 years and it seems to help purchasers know that you have been around for a while and functioning using the same account.

As a Purchaser: I do not see any advantages here other than not having any personal information on line with PayPal, which is a very secure system anyway, and do see that their is an additional small fee associated with the issuance of the card. There could also be short delays in the processing of payment if the balance is not high enough.
