One possible advantage. It would depend on whether or not Citibank's Fraud department KNEW that the number stolen was the PayPal Key. If they KNEW it was the PayPal Key number, they might NOT have to issue you a new Credit Card. You would only have to delete the PayPal Key and generate a new one. PAYPAL please weigh in here, this is important. And if what I've said turns out to be true, then please put that on your description of what PayPal key is. Thanks.

Invitation only. Just received mine today. Not what I expected. Like you, I was a CitiBank virtual account number user. The problem with PayPal Key, is it's JUST one number. It doesn't provide the ability to generate MULTIPLE virtual account numbers with amount limits and expiration dates. It's just ONE number. So, what happens if someone gets access to your Paypal key number? What's to stop them from having a field day, which they would do if they had your actual credit card number? Finally, does Paypal offer liability protection like Citibank?? I wouldn't think so. Believe you would still be dependent on Citibank's Fraud department. So really i don't see the value unless I'm missing something, which I rarely do (sorry that was a bit arrogant). I plan on deleting the key and just using my Citibank card, unless someone can explain the value. Thanks
