Should every website be required to have Paypal as a fund source?

  • Yes this would phase out people stealing you money

    PayPal delivers one of the most secure payment platforms in the world. After more than a decade as a leader in online payments, we've learned a thing or two about keeping your information safer.

    We can spot problems before they happen
    We use fraud prevention technology that monitors transactions for suspicious activity
    We have a team of over 2,000 specialists, working to protect you from fraud and identity theft
    To help identify fraudulent activity, every transaction is reviewed by state of the art security models
    We ensure users who send or receive large amounts of money have successfully completed our verification system and identity check
    PayPal uses state of the art encryption
    Working to safeguard your financial information is one of our most important priorities. That's why we automatically encrypt all sensitive information sent between your computer and our systems, making sure your information is kept private.

    The geeky details
    When registering or logging in to our site, we verify that your Internet browser is running Secure Sockets Layer 3.0 (SSL) or higher. Information is protected by SSL with an encryption key length of 168 bits (the highest level commercially available). We store your personal information and ensure it's heavily guarded, both physically and electronically. To further safeguard your debit and credit card numbers and your bank account details, we do not directly connect our firewall-protected servers to the internet.

  • Sorry, no way

    A requirement such as this would be a blatant violation of the rights of the website owners to accept payment as they wish. Website owners should remain free to choose how they want to accept payment and not be forced to use a certain payment services provider such as Paypal.

  • Not a chance

    Not only would this create a massive monopoly, but it would also unfairly force web developers to include a specific service. Kindly ignore the PayPal shill on the Yes side, this is an awful idea. Creating a monopoly like that would have disastrous outcomes, and also eliminate PayPal's competitors. Why even ask this question?

Paypal sucks. It used to be used for money laundering. It used to be used to deposit funds at internet poker cites as a way to circumvent USA laws.

Nato1111, why do you use paypal. Most people have a debit/credit card and have no use for paypal.
