Because PayPal offers a debit card to customers, many work-at-home agents prefer this payment method as they can receive payment from an employer and immediately use those funds to pay their bills online or head out to do their grocery shopping. They don’t have to wait for funds to clear before they can be used as can occasionally happen when depositing a check.
