For me it's safe and as long as you monitor every balance and all things related on your funds it's safe. Of course it's paypal.

Dear friend, I had my debit and credit cards linked with paypal for last few years. I had not yet faced any problem. Moreover it is so convinient that I could easy transfer cash from paypal account to my bank account. From my experience it is secure.

Hi, It is perfectly safe to use your credit card information in sites like Paypal or AlertPay. However things can go chaotic if there are Trojans in your computer http://www.bukisa.com/articles/358158_assumption-is-our-worst-enemy The main job of spywares is to record all the keystrokes and send it to the hacker. Backdoors and Trojans cripple the security mechanism of your computer. In such a case private information that you enter may be revealed to persons with malicious intentions. My suggestion is that you use a good antivirus along with an anti spyware or anti rootkit program in your computer. Even if you have already registered your credit card with these sites, don't log in to them if there is even the slightest sign of malware infection. Thanks. God bless you.

Paypal is the only one I know about for sure, but I've had my bank account linked to my account there for years and have had no problems at all. I'd say that it was safe just from that experience!

Anything you link to paypal is safe, it only not becomes safe when you give your password out or fall into the hands of a phishing website.
