As you will note, PayPal isn’t well supported amongst Newegg’s competitors so it’s one more reason to shop there if you love using PayPal.

Final Thoughts

Newegg has excellent support for PayPal both in its app and through its online store, whether that be as a guest or signed-in shopper.

This is the least we would expect given that Newegg is a well-known and established tech retailer.

However, it should be noted that its main competitors, Amazon and Micro Center, don’t accept PayPal.

If you love PayPal as we do and you’re looking for new computer tech, then Newegg is a safe option.

If you can’t use PayPal for whatever reason, then Newegg supports a plethora of other payments options including most mainstream credit/debit cards, electronic wallets, and even cryptocurrencies through BitPay.
