PayPal And The Buyer

Writer Wishes to Remain Anonymous

As a buyer, not a merchant, I was wondering whether to use PayPal.  It appears that all the complaints come from merchants.  Are there problems or potential problems, faced by buyers using PayPal?  The merchants’ experience makes me suspicious, and looking at the PayPal site I found that they provided virtually no information to potential buyers who use PayPal.  On regular credit cards one has protection against nondelivery and some other fraud activities.  Would I have less protection with PayPal? Are buyers charged for auction purchases made with PayPal?

How can PayPal work for the buyers if it does not work for the sellers?
