Default online shops (please help)

I live in europe (Belgium) and the problem is that I don't have a shop in Europe that sells after market stuff and hop ups for the Savage.
So I have to try to buy all this stuff online from a US shop.
All online shops I visited on the internet use this payment thing called PAYPAL. Shops like www.extrememotorsports.com and www.meganitro.com and www.nitrohouse.com and many more all use PAYPAL.

What is this ? All stuff I tried to buy from these online shops didn't work because I don't know what to do with PAYPAL.

Can you tell me what to do, so I can buy stuff with PAYPAL.

thancks.
David

paypal is a company( an ebay company) that allows you to pay for stuff online and draws the funds out of your bank account or off your credit card.

go to www.paypal.com

sign up and they will need a credit card and your bank account #'s

then there are some verification process' like;
2 small depostis in your bank account made by paypal(mine was $.21 ans $.31)
thats to verify you paypal and bank account are "linked"

then there is address verification.
maybe a few other but i forget.

if your one of those paranoid people who think the web is 100% scam dont do it.
i have used paypal for over 2.5 years and never had any kind of fraud even attempted.

ebay bought out paypal because they realized how simple and fast it is when making payments.
fast by i mean seconds.
some credit card orders take up to a few days to go through.
paypal is instant, which means you get your product shipped asap

i even got a paypal debit card from them since i do a lot of selling on ebay. i can use it like any credit card.

sign up for it its great.

Hé packfan

I tried www.paypal.com but it's only for US citizens. I can't sign up with my European zipcode and country.

Any suggestions ?
thancks.

pretty much LOL. Ive been using them for 3 1/2 years, and have had alot of over seas people pay through paypal. But I do accept credit card payments so that makes it alot easier.

it will prolly take till the end of next week to get it all set up.
the small deposits they make in your bank account wont be made until like the middle of the week.
once those are done just follow the links inside the web site for account verification.

then once you find something to buy, you just click send funds and put the sellers email address in the proper area.

Ok, I'm looking forward to it. I mostly can pay with paypal direct on the website wright, or do I have to open www.paypal.com first in order to pay the stuff I want to purchase ?
