PayPal Pay After Delivery only charges you when package arrives

PayPal has established itself as one of the most convenient way to pay for goods online, but it still hasn’t skirted that inherent risk of paying for an item long before the consumer receives it. Until now.

The company has officially announced the launch of its Pay After Delivery service, which allows users to pay for their goods a full two weeks after they have placed the order.
