I have been thinking when it comes to buying online there are a lot of risks to be taken. There is always the chance that you will be hacked and lose money, a lot of money. With a prepaid card like the one from Paypal, I sort of feel a bit more comfortable when using it. I only lose the money that I myself put in the card and can easily cancel anytime with no risk. I feel as though a prepaid is a fairly safe method to go.
