I would like to see PayPal as an option for the AutoPay system. PayPal is an option with manual payments, so there’s no logical reason it also couldn’t be used as an automatic payment option too.
The main reason I would like to see PayPal as an automatic payment option is so I have one less site I need to update when my card details change. I love the convenience of automatic payments, but I also like the convenience of PayPal too.
From a security stand point, the fewer sites that have my card details, the less likely it is that they’ll be stolen. It doesn’t completely eliminate the risk, and of course DH does their best to protect our card details, but reducing possible access points is always a good thing when it comes to security.
Besides the convenience and security aspects, making PayPal an automatic payment option also opens up the possibility of using a bank account for automatic payments outside the US. Heck, even the balance of a PayPal account could be used for automatic payments.
I hope DH will seriously consider implementing this suggestion.
