My neighbor wants to use paypal but is scared

He's like most older people and he doesnt trust typing in any personal information on any electronic device especially not bank info. Is there anyway he can link a prepaid debit card to paypal or something like that?

Well not really age but more of generational thing I guess haha but thanks for the quick answer just one more thing do you know if he can add the prepaid card to his account so he won't have to manually put the card number for every purchase? Not for automatic payments but purchases from places like eBay and such.

Think i may be of the same generation....  Smiley Wink

 

But he can add a prepaid card and use it until the funds run out on that card.

Once added and linked to paypal he can use it like a balance until he needs to add another.

 

But he would be just as safe if not safer by adding a credit card to be honest.
