If you have been living in the work-at-home world for any period of time, you likely have a PayPal account. If not, you will soon. PayPal is a popular method of payment for online jobs.
What has made PayPal so popular among both consumers and merchants, or clients and contractors, in this case, is that it is secure, allows for international payments and payments can be received almost instantaneously. When someone sends you a payment it arrives in your PayPal account within minutes compared to days when receiving an ACH deposit in your checking account or check by mail.
Because PayPal offers a debit card to customers, many work-at-home agents prefer this payment method as they can receive payment from an employer and immediately use those funds to pay their bills online or head out to do their grocery shopping. They don’t have to wait for funds to clear before they can be used as can occasionally happen when depositing a check.
