Should You Buy Viagra With PayPal?

Overview: There are multiple methods to discreetly buy lifestyle medications online. However, none of them are perfect, and you should know the benefits and drawbacks of each method.

Confidentiality is top of mind when we make any online purchase, and that’s particularly true when it comes to buying Viagra and other lifestyle medications. Men can struggle with shame and embarrassment over erectile dysfunction, and buying online can help, but only if your payments stay private. [Español]

Some online sellers of Viagra accept PayPal as a payment method, and if you’re familiar with PayPal and comfortable using it, it’s an excellent option for buying Viagra and other lifestyle medications online.

But if you’d like to know all your options, here’s a look at the pros and cons of different ways to pay for Viagra.

Yes, Virginia, You Can Buy Viagra With PayPal

PayPal has a lot to recommend it for lifestyle medication purchases:

  • It’s fast and convenient, with apps, browser tools, and one-click purchase options.
  • When you pay with a credit card, it offers an extra layer of security and customer service on top of those offered by your financial institution.
  • It’s discreet. It generally only puts whatever data the merchant provides in their PayPal account on your credit statement, so you (or your partner!) won’t open an envelope and see VIAGRA slapped on your statement.
  • It’s easier to use  for service members, civil servants working overseas, and other groups that may need to buy from an American pharmacy and have their prescription mailed to them.

While buyers can feel fairly confident using PayPal as a payment method when shopping online, there are a few concerns:

  • Your PayPal account is accessed with an email address and a password. As with any online account, if you’re not using strong passwords, your account could be breached.
  • PayPal purchases are logged to your credit card history with merchant names on the statement. Coupled with the lack of anonymity of a PayPal account, it wouldn’t be that hard for someone with access to your PayPal account to determine exactly where you shopped and what you bought.
  • You may have to pay a slight merchant fee.

Paying For Viagra With Venmo, Stripe, And Other Online Payment Platforms

In the last few years, apps that allow user-to-user payments, like Venmo (which is owned by PayPal), Stripe, and Cash App, have become part of everyday life, to the point where businesses use them to issue paychecks and landlords use them to take rent payments. Venmo alone has more than 60 million users as of 2020, and 40% of Americans used them at least once as of 2019.

Like PayPal, you can connect them to credit cards instead of a bank account, adding an extra layer of security to your transaction. They also work internationally, making it easier to buy online.But unlike PayPal, the payments are user to user, so there’s generally no merchant information on your credit card statement.

There are other privacy issues, however, with these payment methods. You’ll at least need to provide an active email or social media account to log into these apps. While you can technically make transactions “private,” those transactions will still be visible in your personal feed and the personal feed of the other person.

There may be other concerns as well. On Venmo, all transactions go on a social media-like feed, and you have to fill out the memo field to make a payment.

Finally, there’s the cost. Generally, these apps charge a percentage on top of the cash you send, which ranges from 1% to 3%. Considering that generic medication, in particular, is seeing volatility that makes it difficult to secure a good price, that may not be palatable to you.

Further, the customer service isn’t as robust; if a user vanishes from the app, you may be able to get your money refunded, but that’s about it.

Buying Viagra with Credit Cards

Paying with an ordinary credit card may or may not be more private and discreet than paying with PayPal. If you share a credit card with your spouse, they’re going to see the transaction on your statement.

However, credit cards do offer purchase protection against fraud that makes them a top choice for online shopping for millions of people. And using a card directly means you won’t pay the merchant fees charged by apps.

Buying Viagra With A Prepaid Visa Gift Card

Another discreet way to pay for online purchases is to use a prepaid Visa gift card, or similar gift card service offered by Mastercard or American Express.

  • They’re accepted anywhere the payment processor accepts their credit cards.
  • They’re loaded once, with a set amount of money, and can be funded with cash. Some are refillable.
  • There’s no statement or other tracking, although some cards may have a website where you can check balances.

You do have to register your card online, however, with a working email address. This may become more restrictive over time, as these cards are a favorite tool of financial criminals and are becoming subject to more regulation.

Buying Viagra with a Money Order

Some online facilitators that sell ED drugs like Viagra accept money orders, which can be purchased at any Post Office with cash. However, the money order will need to be processed before the product ships, so there may be a slower turnaround than you want.
