    Don't know if this is in the right place, but didn't really know where else to post this! I know it may sound stupid, but i'm clueless :/ ...how do you pay on eBay? whenever i wanted something from eBay i used to ask my dad and he'd get it for me, but i've recently created my own account and want to buy my own stuff. I've heard that PayPal is recommended, do you have to register a credit card with PayPal, or can it be a debit card?

    Generally you use PayPal because a lot of sellers won't trade with you if you don't use it, but you can use a debit/credit card if you wish or also meet up and pay the seller of an item with cash.

    You can register a debit card with paypal. You'll have to wait a bit, I think, before you can use it because they have to sort of validate your card and they put two small amounts in your account and you have to confirm them by saying how much it was. (Or at least, that's what I had to do - though it was a couple of years ago...)
