Payment methods

Credit vs Debit cards
For one thing, with credit cards you aren’t liable if someone does fraudulent credit card transactions, so long as you report the fraud in a timely manner. After all, its the bank’s money, not yours.
Secondly, credit cards give you leverage when it comes to disputing transactions with a seller. If you pay with a debit card, you can’t get your money back unless the seller agrees to it. With credit cards, the money you paid for a product isn’t counted against you until due process is complete, debit card holders however can only get their money back after this step.
Ultimately, banks are much more protective of credit cards since it’s THEIR money on the line, not yours. Ideally, there shouldn’t be a difference, but you know how things go.


Using PayPal might even be safer than giving your credit card number (or bank account information) directly to the website you’re buying from; you can keep that information in one place – at PayPal – instead of spreading it around everywhere you shop. If something happens, you won’t need to cancel your cards and update all of your automatic billers – you can just secure your PayPal account.

Paypal Funding method: for extra protection, it’s a good idea to complete PayPal purchases with a credit card (use your card as the funding mechanism – not an "instant transfer" from your bank account, debit card, or PayPal balance). Why? If PayPal decides not to refund your money, you can try again with your credit card issuer. What’s more, a credit card is not linked directly to your bank account like a debit card, so you won’t have an empty account while you clean up the mess.

On-line banking: …Need this to keep a close check on debit card and credit card transactions.

Delivery Address:

Home Addresses in Spain are often difficult to find, and you may need to wait at home. Look at using drop-off point such as Mailboxes (50m from the Club) for the delivery address.
