Selling (and buying) online 1

Buying online has become one of the most important ways to trade in the world.

It doesn’t have to be physical things that you buy, it can be services including paying bills such as your TV licence.

In order to buy online, you need to have a payment method which might involve using a credit or debit card or possibly a payment services such as PayPal.  PayPal is a secure service and incurs no charge when you buy, only when you sell.  PayPal works best if it is linked to one of your cards or your bank account.

However, you may want to limit access to your financial details by setting up an independent “top up” or prepaid card.

But that is not what we are looking at today.  We are going to sell online.  Not as a business, but as an individual.
