    Hello, so I'm looking to start using ebay. So I opened a paypal account. I wanted the free one. I'm worried as it looks like it's given me a premier one. Am I right in thinking this will only cost me if I use it to sell something? Or is there a monthly fee or something? I've looked all over the site, but I clearly missed something. So lovely people, any answers?

    Paypal Premier is just an extension of their basic account that is designed for handling larger transaction volumes. It will allow you to accept credit and debit card payments in addition to merely transferring funds online, but you would be charged a fee if others pay you in this way. I'm unsure of what their policy is with regards to downgrading accounts, but you could consider e-mailing them if you were indeed mistaken and asking if it is possible to change.

    You can change back to the basic account (your only allowed to do this once), just send them an email and they should change your account, if you have any worries.

    I've used pay pal for 6 years and never had an issue. Most eBay users use it and most never had a problem.
