Question Online payment services

I am curious if anyone has had any experience with online payment services such as PayPal, Google Pay, Venmo, I Pay, or whatever. Any thing good, bad, Horror stories.
I had used PayPal a couple of times, but never trusted it, mainly because it was associated with Ebay. I had heard that Apple I pay was the most secure, couldn't say.

I have used PayPal basically since it started. I have never had any problems with security.

I've never had problems. I've used it for about a little over a year lots of times.

My problem with it was I purchased something, for a company I worked for, and used company CC. I turned in a memo, to authorize the purchase, which never got to the right person. After a couple months, the accountant denied the charges and the guy was unpaid. I got some phone calls, and made a bunch. It took months to straighten out. While the guy waited for his money.

I have been a member since 2002 and have never had a concern. And I use it for all internet purchases. If someone does not use PayPal, I do not purchase from them. I transfer money to and from kids and friends and some clients.

no offense, but i don't see that this was PayPal's fault.

Only experiences with Pay Pal have been positive, use Google Pay only for my phone stuff and that works for me.

I use PayPal quite often for Internet orders. Never had any issues. I have ApplePay on my phone linked to a credit card. It is much faster (and safer) for transactions on gas pumps. Too many credit card skimming devices in gas pumps now days.
