Here is the URL for their website: https://www.paypal.com
"PayPal lets you pay anyone with an email address and is the world's #1
online payment service -- it's accepted on over 3 million eBay(TM) auctions
and thousands of online shops. You can also use PayPal to pay your friends;
it's a convenient way to split the phone bill with your roommate or send
cash to someone in another country.
"When you send money through PayPal, you can fund your payments with your
credit card or checking account. You won't have to worry about your
privacy, because PayPal keeps your account information safe.
Making a purchase with PayPal is more secure than mailing a check or giving
your credit card number to a stranger. That's why over 9 million people
from around the world use PayPal to move money."

It's not hard to sign up for PayPal, you just have to wade through a lot of
irrelevant material and self-promotion in the process. I've used it once
and it works.
