    PayPal

    I've had a number of problems with this PayPal system. Waiting for ages for money to go from my bank into the PP Account caused a long wait for goods I'd bought on eBay.

    My friend yesterday told me that I can add my credit card to PayPal and pay for things with just a click of a button which means anything I win I can pay for straight away without having to add funds, I've added my card and was just wondering how it is done when I win an item in an Auction...if I do haha.

    Any first hand experience would be great as the PayPal help centre isn't that good really online.

    Many Thanks.

    your friend is right. they just take the money for any purchase from your credit card and pay the seller instantly.

    Thats great, thanks CSI Man!

    You just click send money and choose your payment method and you are ready to go.

    also i find the easiest way is to add your bank details and then do a bank transfer which the seller gets immediately and paypal request via direct debit a couple of days later. this is brill if u want to get something that finishes before you get paid for a day or 2. plus doesnt charge seller fees for using either, unlike card. 8-)

    Only if the seller hase a personal account. Most sellers will have a business account (even if they are not a business) in order to accept more than a couple credit card payments a year, and as such they get charged the same amount whether it is via bank transfer/credit card/PayPal funds,etc.

    Also, if you pay by Bank Transfer you do not have the protection that a credit card can give you in certain situations.
