Don't you love it when you're about to make an online purchase, and instead of wasting ten more minutes of your life pulling your credit card out and typing in numbers for payment and shipping, you see the little PayPal icon? Sweet relief! I'm so stoked when I can just log into PayPal and complete my transaction. In a move that's way too convenient for my online shopping problem, PayPal has introduced a plug-in so you can use PayPal every time and anywhere you shop online.
All you need is a PayPal account and to download the plug-in — with sites that do accept PayPal, it will automatically populate all your shipping and payment info when you click it in your browser. For sites that don't normally use PayPal, the plug-in generates Secure Cards, one-time use numbers that deduct from your debit card. Unfortunately for Mac users, the plug-in is not available yet, but Secure Cards are. Like I need to more reasons to shop.
