    PayPal is an online payment system that is an easy and safe way to transfer and receive money, make an online-payment, as well as set up a merchant account. It is an electronic alternative to traditional paper payment methods.

    "Paypal used to be amazing. Now they have been bought out and the quality is going down. I have had paypal for 8 years. Never a problem. Now I have been hacked twice and the interest rate on their store card went from 14 to 25 % though I pay it off every month. Won't use it anymore. Going to apple pay or google wallet."

    "This is interesting but as I've discovered, not really necessary. You might like layering and so this would be good for that purpose, but again not a necessary add in or plug in for the average computer user. "

    "I use Outlook everyday for my line of work and have found the Outlook StatView by Nirsoft plug in to be extremely useful. Not only does it display all of the necessary data that I need (such as knowing the number of outdoing and incoming messages that I have from a single screen) but it is also very quick and efficient.

    "Not worth it to me. Dealing with attachments in Outlook can be a bit of a pain, but this doesn't make it THAT much easier where I can justify the price. For now it's back to the old way for me until I can find a cheaper (or free) option."

    "SendAware isn't really all that useful. It basically helps draw attention to email recipients, but it really isn't that "smart" as software goes. I found when I overlooked something once I would just overlook it again. It lacked powerful features to draw attention to, for example, unusual behavior or apparent typos. So I don't really understand what the point was. Pass!"
