Paypal’s interesting find

PayPal Inc.

Okay, I do a lot of stuff on the net. And I am not as security conscious as I should be. I needed to order some new scrubs for the new assignment. Most of my Navy scrubs have “Property of Methodist Healthcare” stamped on them and I am sure that would be frowned upon at the new place. So I went to my favorite online uniform store Lydia’s Uniforms and found a few things I like. But they don’t take paypal. But I’d heard of something a few days ago that I didn’t know about before. Paypal‘s Secure Card plug in doesn’t work on Macintosh, but we can get it anyway. So I generated a one time use credit card from Paypal and used it to pay. I know it’s a hassle to generate a new card each time I want to pay for something, but I’d have to go dig out my check card from my purse anyway. So I might as well do it this way.
