PayPal is a kind of “financial intermediary” between you and the e-shop. So that you don’t have to enter your credit card number into each store, you just need to pair your card with the account you create on paypal.com. In order to start using this service, you must first register. The next step is to pair your card with your paypal account. You will enter your card type (VISA, MasterCard, American Express), card number, expiration date and CVC code, which you will find on the other side of the card. Make sure you have enabled online payments on your card. If you do not have them enabled, you can activate them through your internet banking.

PayPal then verifies your card by charging you a nominal amount. A few days later, check your card statement and you’ll find a four-digit code for this transaction. Entering this code into your PayPal account will definitively pair your card with PayPal.
Now you can shop online without having to enter your credit card number each time.
You decide how much money you have in your PayPal account.
