    eBay's terms and conditions state u need to be 18, and u should atleast have a solo/switch card absolute minimum. Although it states u have to be 18, u can *pretend* to be, which is what alot of people do, and u just need a bank account and preferably paypal if u dont have a solo/switch. Infact Paypal.co.uk teams up with eBay, and personally I think they are both very very safe and secure. I have a solo card and my trick is to just leave £10 in that card, and until i purchase, i will add money to the card, or if I've sold, i will take the cash out and put it into another bank account of mine.

    I have signed up for paypal and I'm waiting the 3-5 working days hfor the 2 small amounts to be put into the account before I can verify it.

    So the bottom line is, I need a switch/solo card to sell
    Do you have to be over 18 to get one?
    I might go to my bank and get one because I have a load of PS2 games I could sell and I really need some money.

    Halifax are the only place I've found for under 18 credit/debit cards, other than that use a parents or an old sister/brother.

    However, they will charge this same card every month with all your seller fees.

    I'm on HSBC's Right Track Into Study account, which was automatically upgraded from my Livecash account when I turned 16. And I got a Solo card.

    Just wondering, what advantage does this give exactly? I have one current account which I use for pretty much everything! And my Solo card is tied to it. Also I do have a couple of Post Office savings thingies that mum and dad set up but I never use them myself, I think they put money into them every month or something though to go towards my university costs.

    A Solo card's just a switch though isn't it?

    Is that the only place? It seems a bit pointless to have a card which only one place accepts it.

    Ebuyer do, and a few other places such as amazon and 123 reg i've tried- a lot look at it in a similar way to the switch card so i reckon there's some kind of compatibility. I also got mine through HSBC's right track study account.
