How can Paypal store credit card numbers and ccv?

How can paypal store credit card numbers and CCV without worrying that the database can be compromised ?


You cannot store the CCV number. Paypal uses this number to verify the credit card. Then they store the rest of the information encrypted, and the record is marked as "verified".
