    Very reliable and safe..
    The only thing you have to worry is sometimes people send fake emails saying that they are paypal..
    example:
    "Your account was recently disabled due to fruad.. please log in to verify your account

    USERNAME_____
    PASSWORD____"

    Never click on these links from your email... when you want to log in paypal.. go directly to their site by entering www.paypal.com in your browser..

    Actually same goes with other things like Ebay accounts too

    I get them all the time. I got sick of reporting the emails to paypal and ebay. A good tip is if the emails are real it will have your real name and not email address in the tite. Its usually very fancy as well. I've also used paypal for years with no problems. Its better than giving your card details to a company your unsure of. Paypal also guarantees your purchases up to £500.

    I rather use my bank's virtual card system than have PayPal charge me a fee for every purchase I make.

    Yeah the time it takes differs... it can take from 1-5 days. Most often not (read: never) longer than 3 days, if speaking from my own experience.

    It's usually safe, as long as your careful. Send me your password and I'll have a look over your account and check for anything suspicious for you.
