adding a bank account it takes out usually a couple days after you pay for goods (though make sure you have funds incase its quicker but usually 3 days in personal opinion, adding credit card it takes out instantly, hope this helps :)

so i add the bank account, set up a direct debit now, before i buy anything off ebay.

then i can buy anything straight away?

not with bank account you have to wait for them to put two small amounts in ur bank to verify it is yours, usually amounts between 1p and £1 think that takes bout 4 days from memory, but you can add your bank card (the long number) and use that instantly up to a certain limit without being verified I think !

never knew paypal was usable by debit do you still need to be 18 as my son 16 wants one but i thaught it was credit only if e can saves my having to use mine for him all the time cheers

oo and how much does it cost to use as when i use it for hukd i dont get charged once again cheers

not sure on the age thing? and tell me if I am wrong, but if can pay by direct debits in general and have a bank acct and sort code should be possible? and they charge the seller not the buyer generally on ebay when sending a payment. but paypal gift wise for this site you get charged unless you have funds in ur pp acct if that makes sense?
#10
ahhh thats i get you he has always sold something then baught what he wants with the funds will have a wonder on the site now cheers

setting one up and its asking for his 8 digit account number how will i find it (debit card)
#12
i found that you can just use his debit card! on 'my account', click on 'profile', just click add or remove card. i used my dads in the end and realised he was using AMEX.

you would be well advised NOT to link your Paypal account directly with your bank account, that means that everything you buy can come straight out of your bank account and makes it almost impossible to open a dispute about service or goods , you would be far better registering a credit card with them and paying off the balance in full when your statement arrives. A friend of mine who incidentally is a Solicitor had her bank details hacked through Paypal and lost £1000 from her bank.At least you have some added security when you use a credit card.
