yes, you can top the card up, the balance appears the next working day. to spend on your junk.

Yes, it's much quicker than transfering your paypal cash into your bank account. Only prob is you get charged for withdrawing cash (about 2.50 per withdrawal, I think), but it's free if you just want to use it as a debit card.


i think that there is only a certain amount you can transfer to it in a year though and its not that much well 10 grand so depends on how much you sell on ebay

Ive never been charged any fees (apart from paying £5 for the card), i just top up the card from paypal, and spend the money in the shops.
