what kind of payment method do you prefer for the things that you buy online. Generally I chose to pay at delivery with cash money

I pay with credit cards that give me some percentage back as cash, on-line or not. All credit card bills are paid every month so we never pay interest but we do rack up those cash rewards. We use whichever credit card is offering the most for what we are buying - for example, one card gives me 5% on groceries and another is 5% on car repairs and yet another is 3% on clothing. Others are only 1% but that's still better than nothing.

I don't use cash-on delivery : it is rarely available, and more expensive. I use generally PayPal or a disposable debit card to buy online. PayPal is my preferred method of payment, as they refund you if you don't receive your purchase. It happened only once to me, and it worked : it is a real security for the buyer.

I never tried paying with paypal because it's not available for the online stores that deliver in romania. anyway for international sites I know it works just fine. plus I think there's no commission for the transaction right?

@swissheart There are many online shops accepting PayPal in France. It is the seller that pays the commission. It is the more interesting option when you buy something in a foreign country, and often the only available for countries like China or Hong-Kong.

I usually use PayPal or direct bank transfer, depending on which method they offer. If the COD option is available I wouldn't mind that, either.

I use Paypal when available, otherwise I use a debit card. On Amazon, I mostly use gift cards that I get from doing surveys and stuff.

I used PayPal for everything. If they don't accept it I won't buy it.

I use giftcards when it's possible and Paypal for everything else. I'll also use credit card, but very rarely. I don't like putting my information online.
