Why Paypal is so popular even in online games?

Nowadays, PayPal is one of the most widespread payment systems all over the world. It makes internet payments easy and quite fast. Even online gaming providers which have the premium content option or gaming staff for real money are accepting PayPal in their products. What is more surprising, even online casinos like ones from this list http://free-slots-no-download.com/paypal/ allow you to make payments with it from your account. So I am interested in your opinion about it. How do you think, why it is so popular?

I wear a lot of hats...

It also offers security to the buyer whose credit card remains hidden for the seller.  The seller can be certain te receive it's money.  So, in the end it's a win-win.

It's also got the reputation / first to business.  I've seen other payment gateways but PayPal was there first and had hooked up with Ebay so became extremely popular as the go to for sending money to other people online.  Could you even name another payment service that does something similar to paypal (without google)?

Hi,

For me it is all about not having to give out my credit card number (except to PayPal itself - but still one party rather than many), plus I carry no balance in PayPal, so it is hard to see how I have much risk beyone PayPal itself getting hacked and somehow putting a charge on my card.

Today, lot of payment methods are available online but Paypal is a very secure and old payment method that got a lot of trust from its user.  That's why people are using Paypal
