    Yea you can do it with a credit/debit card BUT paypal will only give you I (I think) $1,500 in free transactions before you need a checking account....:sly2:

    I have a checking account and I don't think I've made that many transactions with them.

    Signing up is free and all, but you have to add a credit card before you can send money at all. I've heard Visa gift cards will work, can I do that?

    I just have a credit card attached to my Paypal. I get a 10k sending limit (not sure what time period that is over) and $500 withdraw limit every month. I upgraded (also free) so there's fees with every transaction, but it reduces the hassle of dealing with credit card transaction fees.

    I've been using paypal with my debit card for the past two years and I never had any problems. But you might get several spam emails about paypal. If you do, just ignore it.

    What's this about a credit card? I've got an account with just my bank account and I've received and sent money several times already.

    I found paypal a bitch to set up, but the convinience is worth the initial frustration.

    i get about 4-5 spam Paypal "verification" emails a year and i send them forward to Paypal and the government.

    But PP is so worth it, IMHO.

    I agree, Paypal is very useful, apart from eBay it can be used to pay in a variety of internet shops, so these other shops won't get you Credit card details, they just get paid through PP.

    I ordered my Castle Crashers and Classics City Commander set that way!
