Shop Confidently This Holiday Season With PayPal

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege to sit down for a holiday dinner at Pray Tell with a few of the city’s most notable influencers and the great people at PayPal. The dinner was absolutely fantastic, as chef Sonia Mondino cooked up more courses than I could count, to tickle our taste buds and fill our belly’s. Chef Sonia informed us that each dish was inspired by a traditional Italian Christmas dinner that she often enjoyed as a child. The night also had various holiday inspired cocktails and a full antipasto bar, similar to what you would see at an Italian wedding!






As we ate, I got to chatting with the various staff at PayPal and I was delightfully informed at some of the ways they are working to make holiday shopping stress-free. As a long-time user of PayPal, I was unaware of some of the awesome benefits and security protocols that they have put in place. Not only do they ensure that you receive your purchases, but also protect your personal information. With that being said, here a few more ways PayPal users can shop confidently this Holiday season:

One Touch Checkout

PayPal’s One Touch checkout allows you to checkout faster as you shop across millions of online retailers. As there is no need to retype usernames, passwords, or 16-digit credit card numbers, users can save some valuable shopping time. Talk about simplifying shopping from your mobile phone when you’re on the go!

Free Return Shipping

Purchased something that doesn’t fit right, wasn’t what you expected, or you simply changed your mind about it? It’s no longer a big deal! PayPal’s newly launched Return Shipping on Us service now foots the bill for return shipping costs on eligible items.







Purchase Protection

Shop with confidence. If something goes wrong with an eligible transaction, PayPal’s Purchase Protection has you covered. Get a full refund if an eligible order is significantly not as described, or doesn’t arrive at your doorstep.

Shop Anywhere From Everywhere

PayPal connects you to more than 13 million online retailers and sellers, from local artisans to big retailers all around the world – so you can find one-of-a-kind gifts, all while staying cozy on your couch on any connected device.






The night concluded with a Secret Styler gift exchange (think Kris Kringle, but with influencers). Before the night of the event, each of us was paired with another guest and was asked to purchase a gift for them using PayPal. I was tasked to buy something for Catriona of Coco & Cowe. After getting some help from a couple of friends, I eventually decided on gifting her a Fuji Instax Mini 8 and an Illume Majestic Glass Candle!




Overall, I want to thank PayPal for the wonderful festive evening. This holiday season, shop confidently with PayPal to alleviate some of that gifting stress!
