    I've recently joined eBay and i've set up and validated a paypal account using a banka ccount in order to pay funds into it.
    What i was wondering though was whether i could purchase items on eBay and pay for them through Paypal even though there are no funds in the paypal account but there are in my bank account.
    This is what Paypal says under Add Funds:

    "You may make payments from your bank account without adding funds to your PayPal balance.

    However, if you feel more comfortable knowing that there are funds in your PayPal balance, you may add them now. While waiting for the funds to clear, you may continue using your PayPal account as usual. "

    I'm not quite sure how to interpret that.

    You can do that, its fine. You dont have to have money in your Paypal account.

    Yes you can, you don't have to have funds in the paypal account. Simply bid for something and once you win the money will be transferred from the bank account to the sellers account in paypal.

    You may end up sending an E-Cheque (it's a strange paypal thing, you can't make it happen or even stop it happening!) which will take about 15 days to clear.

    Fortunately I only had the e-cheque thing happen to me once...:rolleyes:

    Just be careful with that, the money doesnt leave your bank account till about a week later (you may forget and theres zilch in your account at the time, then your bank charges you an overdraft fee).
