My membership is coming up tomorrow. Has any one renewed since the upgrade ? Did you had to open a Paypal account to pay for it ? I am reluctant to do that because I don't want my credit card to be on file at Paypal. It used to be that you could pay with a credit card without opening an account. Now there are only 2 options : either you already have an account or you need to open an account. Frankly, I have a Paypal account that I opened years and years ago and never used. I am not even sure my login and password would still work so old it is. And having moved the information there is not any longer accurate anyway. I really don't want to open a new account and am considering not renewing my membership if I have to.

I've had a PayPal account for quite a while, have had no problems with it and find it pretty handy!

I opened it when I was going through a phase of buying on ebay. Now I find it handy for shoes at Zappos. :D And it makes it easy to make contributions to rescue organizations and shelters. :)

I purchased a membership when it was necessary to edit my posts--I wonder if it still is. I make so many typos, and have so many afterthoughts, I really need to be able to edit. :)

I've had a paypal account for years and don't know what I'd do without it. I use it all the time and I've never had any trouble.
If you have an account and just don't remember your password you can sign in and then click the link for a forgotten password and they'll send it to your email address as long as that's the same email you opened it under.

My job pays me through pay pal. It is very secure. I would just log in and change your info. If a website says "https" it is a secure site. If it says "http" it is not. :thumbsup:

Don't you mean http is secure and https is not. In that case, this is not a secure site, nor is Neiman Marcus or Louis Vuitton or Tiffany's.

Mindi is correct to a certain degree about sites that use "https" in their URL. It's not the be-all-end-all of online security but it does help. That said, not having it doesn't make your site unsecure. Also, you have to keep in mind the purpose of the site and what https does. SM does NOT require it because we don't store, process or transfer sensitive data -- that's why it's done through PAYPAL. :)

Most all sites we visit are http and then when you go to the check out area or really any area where you are inputting credit card information, you will see that it will change to https. That is standard "best practices" for the web. If we are not inputting personal info there is no need for the page to be secure ... we are just looking at the page .. there is nothing for anyone to "steal".

Credit card companies demand a certain (high) level of security for sites that do a significant amount of business using credit cards.

Thanks Sher......I only looked on the pages that first come up. I am glad to know that and Mindi's Mom was correct. I will look from now on......to be sure.

I love paypal! I have had a couple of problems in the past, but pp always resolved them in my favor. You don't have to have a credit card as a back up. You can just use your checking account to link it to. What I did was open a seperate CA from my main one that I use all the time and use it only for PP, etc. I also have the PP Business Debit Card. I actually use it more than my bank d/c, as I get money back every month from using it, anywhere from $10-25.00
