    Would you know what this sentence from the Inquirer story means: "Paypal Philippines account can only send up to US$500 for the eternity of the account."

    Does it mean that once you register, you can only accumulate $500 worth of purchases then your account will be terminated? Or does it mean you can only have $500 worth of purchases charged to your account at any given time?

    Also, secure ba itong PayPal na ito?

    I think the limit of $500 is for single transaction only but I'm not sure. By the way, PayPal is better than credit card online purchases as you don't have to give your cc details everytime you make an online purchase.

    Just enough for an Aimpoint or an Eotech.. :thumbsup:

    Balita ko sa BE forums, paypal is very anti-gun. Once they find out na gun-related yung mga purchases sinasara agad yung acct even kung mey laman pa. :sad:

    Hindi naman sinasara pero may extra if firearm purchase.
    Kung gun related naman ok lang. Ebay have lots of gun related items, as long as hindi firearm ok i-benta doon.

    Has anyone heard of click2pay facility? They say its similar to paypal, though it employs an e-wallet daw. Any feedback on this?

    I also don't have a credit card. I opened an Eon VISA cyber account at Unionbank and it also serves as a VISA Debit Card which you can use like a credit card for purchases online. The advantage of a debit card is that it relies on the existing funds in your atm account. You only have to put funds into that account before making a purchase so there is less risk of your account being used in fraud. I also used the Eon VISA card in registering for PayPal. One thing that is also good about Eon is that you dont get monthly statements and you can just check online for it anytime so that the wifey will be clueless on the price of that very expensive toy you bought.
