Transcript of PayPal - an information system

What is PayPal?
PayPal is a service that enables you to pay, send money, and accept payments without revealing your financial information.
But how does it work?
PayPal acts like a digital wallet where you can securely store all your payment options, such as your bank account and credit card,
And then lets you send money to each other via email, without letting either party see the other's credit card or bank information
After you register your email adress and link it to your bank details, Paypal encrypts this data and stores it so the only person who can see it is you.
Then paypal uses your email adress to represent all of your information, and automaticaly completes the actions to transfer money, using tht information linked to the adress.
PayPal acts as the middleman holder of your money.
