Although OT, this seems tb somewhat in the spirit of the NG.

Can anybody comment on the safety of transferring money from one's bank
account to PayPal?

The idea of supplying my bank account ID/routing #/whatever to an entity
that, AFIK, has been hacked at least once bothers me.

OTOH, transferring money from a credit card (safe or, at least liability
limited to $50 worst case) was quite expensive last time I did it.
