    Well, confliction info from my search, half of which looked sketchy. So I thought I would ask.

    You can transfer what you have on Paypal to your credit card and use that for Amazon purchases. I think it's because Amazon has Payments, so it's kind of a competition thing to Paypal, even though Paypal can be used for almost everything.

    I have a Paypal Business Master Card maybe you can apply for one. No fees with a 500 withdraw limit and 1% cash back.

    Edit Holy shit does that sound like advertisement :rofl2:

    They said no from what I could tell. I wonder, how does the gifting thing work on Amazon?

    You can use a Paypal debit card on Amazon, but Amazon automatically runs it as debit and you need to run the card as credit to get the 1% cash back.

    I know, but only if you get the option to run it as credit. Places like Amazon and Wal-Mart don't give you the option though.

    And I know for a fact that if the amount is less than $40 the Wal-Mart where I live automatically runs your card as pinless debit without any say from me. Not sure if that's legal or not. I do know running cards as debit is cheaper for the retailer, so that's probably why they're doing that.

    Get a PayPal debit card and you can use it on amazon and every other site. It's what I do. It pulls from your PayPal balance.
