Why Use PayPal


PayPal is used by a large number of international businesses and individuals as their main means for sending funds to freelancers.

With PayPal, you can connect and receive payments from clients all around the world outside the Philippines – whether online, on mobile or via email.

Your PayPal account is built with one of the most sophisticated payment platforms to help keep your financial data safer and more secure. PayPal helps protect against fraudulent transactions and theft. Each transaction is not only fast and easy, but also safe against theft and fraud, so you can have the peace of mind to focus on your craft.
