No set up fee.
PayPal is free when paying for domestic purchases.

Safeguarding buyers' financial information by not sharing buyers’ financial information with sellers, enabling the buyers to feel more secure and confident about buying from PayPal merchants.

Industry-leading use of data encryption. PayPal is renowned for their extensive use of data encryption.
