    i created a paypal account so i can buy some stuff from dealxtreme, the think is that i dont own a credit card, i make money on my paypal account with sites like usercash.com and other like it...
    i wanted to know, if i can get any problems, if i actually buy anything with paypal, without having a creadit card added to my paypal account...


    thanks in advance

    You shouldn't need anything other than money in the account to pay for stuff with the money in the account.

    I added a debit card to my account. As someone says if you have a bank account added, you can just transfer the money into paypal from that. But it takes a few days. You need a bank account so they can see that you are who you say you are.

    so there's no way of paying stuff with paypal without a bank account or a credit card added to my account?

    I don't think so. PayPal needs 'something' to ensure that you have the necessary physical support for transfering founds, be it either a bank account or a credit card (which will always be associated to a bank account, BTW). They can't work on thin air, you know? [​IMG]

    The money is already in the paypal account, isn't it? Is a bank account still needed when paypal already has the money?

    If you don't have enough money when you buy something using Paypal. Paypal will pick the "necessary missing" money from your bank account you added (like a credit card).

    since i dont have nor paypal nor a credit card, i guess ill have to make the cash/money payment, that includes sending them the money via postal service, wich takes about 6-10 days in normal priority mail, and only then they'll ship the thingy, all the for 3 pouchs and a hori screen protection pack, that i cant find anywhere in european shops :\
