It is already November, and Christmas is inching closer and closer. Although the gift shopping frenzy has yet to begin (it is only a matter of time), we still have plenty to do, be it clearing leave for year-end travel, gatherings with our loved ones, and so much more. Let’s face it — gift shopping can be a taxing experience, especially if you have a long list of family, friends, and colleagues with different age groups and niche interests to shop for (not when you have PayPal though).
Want to take the stress off Christmas shopping all while enjoying savings galore? Here are four reasons why you should use digital payment platform PayPal this upcoming festive season.
Safe & secure shopping
As much as I’d love to go down the straightforward way of carting out items without a second thought, safety and security are some of my top priorities.
Fortunately, PayPal has a reputation for keeping you and your payments safe with its unique fraud prevention methods, which include encrypting all sensitive bank and credit/debit card information. You can easily see both your inbound and outbound transactions with the click of a mouse, but PayPal takes protection to the next level by analysing accounts and monitoring all transactions in real-time.
Eligible purchases can also be protected by Buyer Protection. For instance, if you receive the wrong thing or nothing at all, the full payment amount (shipping included) can be reimbursed to you — less to worry about!
The best part? You can easily transfer funds from your bank account to your PayPal account and make purchases on international websites without a credit card.
Shopping online during the festive season can get hectic, but with PayPal, you can do so with confidence (even if you don’t know the seller) without fear of falling prey to scammers.
Huge variety of online shops
Did you know that PayPal is used almost everywhere in the world, including on our shores? Take your pick from an extensive list of online stores, be it big brands or indie boutiques, and get everything you need, easily and securely.
You can check out with PayPal when shopping at widely loved brands popular amongst Singaporeans like Nespresso, iHerb,ASOS, Giant, Sephora, and Love, Bonito, just to name a few. Whether you are shopping for clothes, furniture, Korean cosmetics, or even groceries, PayPal is a reliable one-stop shop for online payments.
Alternative forms of gifting — sorted
Can’t decide on a gift? It may be time to shop smarter and go down the fast and hassle-free route of gifting Netflix, Disney+, or Spotify subscriptions for all your loved ones.
For example, getting gifts for a gamer has never been easier with PayPal — you can get the latest PlayStation®Store digital releases, DLCs and more delivered directly to the recipient’s console or portable, or purchase games via Steam that can be downloaded and played right away.
Multiple recurring payments and subscriptions can also be easily managed, all in one place, so you’ll never have to worry about keeping track of what gifts you’ve already purchased.
But if you are seriously stumped without a single gift idea in mind, why not do it the old-fashioned way by sending money to friends and family (an ideal solution for those residing overseas)? All you need is the recipient’s email address and mobile number, and the money will go directly to their account. Those new to PayPal can also create an account quickly and easily for free.
What can I say? There is beauty in the intangible, after all.
Get vouchers with the PayPal Welcome Pack
Evidently, PayPal makes holiday gift shopping so much easier. From now till 30 November 2022, all who sign up for a PayPal will receive a Welcome Pack of three S$5 vouchers for your wishlist on these six brands:

Getting food and groceries for a loved one may jolly well be the best Christmas gift one can receive — it’s high time you treated your partner, BFF, or colleague to their favourite bubble tea, donuts, and gourmet burgers with Foodpanda.

As someone who rarely uses ride-hailing transport apps due to the high prices, I couldn’t be more grateful for good ol’ Gojek vouchers. Can’t say no to travelling across town in comfort, can you?
In the spirit of looking good for the festivities, it may be a good idea to give your bestie (or even yourself) a wardrobe refresh courtesy of ZALORA, a popular fashion retailer with both local and international brands to choose from.
From now till 31 December 2022, you can also enjoy 15% off + 5% Cashback if you use the code PPZAL22 (with a minimum spend of S$100) when you pay using PayPal.
