Yes most major online accept PayPal. I actually use the PayPal Plug in when I'm shopping online, it offers extra security.

I know that many do. Paypal seems to be trust worthy, though I do get spam about my account but that is not their fault.

There are lots of online stores that accepts paypal like shoe stores, ebay, etc. However dept. store websites don't usually have this option and a lot of other stores that you see in the mall only accepts credit cards online. Amazon don't accept paypal but they have an option for check payments which is as good as cash so it's as fast as getting the money from your account like paypal. I only use my paypal account if I have money there...if not then I don't use it cause it's also like credit card. Paypal will charge the amount from the stored credit card you entered there so what's the point of using Paypal if the money is also coming from your credit card? unless the site you shop on only requires Paypal so yeah...

Yes, most sites actually accept ONLY paypal. So getting a paypal is indeed very useful! Now that my country has paypal, I can really pay anything anywhere now.

Major retailers online accept paypal for more and more people are buying online via PayPal. But it seems that it is next to impossible for most sites to regard PayPal as the payment tool. You see, even if someone found a friendly site to accept PayPal, the likelihood is that the account holder will make ONE deposit, then return to their PayPal account and upon logging in and find their Paypal account restricted or closed. Happy myLotting!

The majority of major retailers do accept paypal. I have had a paypal account for a few years and never had any problems with it. I have heard some horror stories about experiences people have had but personally I highly reccomend it. It's safe, easy and I have never encountered any problems.
