I havent tried purchasing some stuff online using my Paypal account. Is it always a success, are you encountering any problems when you purchase using Paypal? Im a little worried that my money might go into waste, like purchase something but wont arrive. What are the usual stuffs you buy online? And how long does it usually take for it to get to you? Thanks! Need some tips before I make my first purchase, still thinking what to buy though... =)

if you're going to use PayPal as the payment method make sure that your home address is confirm by adding a credit card, because majority of the seller do not ship to an unconfirmed address, you don't need to worry because paypal has BUYER PROTECTION program, if you want to know more info about the program you may go to www.paypal.com and check their legal agreements at the bottom part of the page and please go to the section 11 and 13 for both SELLER PROTECTION and BUYER PROTECTION atleast to give you an idea about the seller as well, the timeframe in getting the item is depend on the merchant or the seller, if the item did not arrive atleast 10 days or more, you may file a dispute or claim, but before you do that you should have atleast contacted the seller, if no response from the seller for more than 2 days then you may dispute the item,

for the additional info, you can also go to www.paypal-shopping.com, if you want to check other store or merchant that used paypal for their promotion on their products, like discounts, gift certificates or coupons, to help you save money. enjoy shopping

I use my paypal account to buy books from bookdepository.com since they offer free shipping and slightly cheaper prices than the book store. I also buy stuff off ebay with my paypal account.So far almost everything I've bought has arrived,but I'm still waiting for a couple of items...think there's a delay in shipping or I chose the cheaper suface mail option rather than the more pricey air mail option...

I have used paypal to pay for all sorts of goods and services, and never had problems with it. How long the goods/services take to arrive depends on the buyer/seller agreement. You can work with the selling party on the delivery options. Good luck with your first purchase. Trust me, you won't stop at one. Have fun!
