    If you set up a Paypal account, they give you certain passwords, etc. Paypal will store your credit card or debit card #. Then when you order from somewhere, like Ebay or some stores, you can click on PayPal logo to have the payment go thru there. I found that almost immediately, PayPal has withdrawn the money from my checking account. ( I use debit card) I have had NO problems with orders when I go thru PayPal....

    You probably have a personal PayPal account. There is no charge for these accounts. Someone else with a PayPal account can send you money and there is no charge as long as they do not send it via credit card. When I want to be paid via PayPal, I always specify in my listing that it has to be non-credit card PayPal.

    If you have a personal account and accept a credit card PayPal payment to it (the website will ask for your approval before it is put into your account), your account will be automatically upgraded to a business account. Business accounts are charged a fee *every time* a payment is made to them, whether it is made with a credit card or not.

    In order for someone to pay you via PayPal, they must set up a PayPal account of their own. I'm not sure what all the different ways are to set up a personal account. Mine I set up with an automatic connection to our checking account; it takes 3 to 5 business days to do the verification process for this kind of setup.

    To actually make a payment, the person needs your PayPal email address. They go to the PayPal website, log in to their account, and then make a payment to the PayPal email address you have given them.

    I send an invoice via paypal to their email address and they make the payment through paypal even if they do not have an account. Yes I am charged 3% for accepting payments.

    How do you get paid if you use a credit card with paypal?
    I have only made purchases using paypal and they add the amount to my credit card. Also, I have had no problems using paypal.
    Thanks..........

    They need your paypal email address, and then anyone can send you a payment that also has paypal. Also if you deposit your money into your personnal checking acct. you can transfer money from your checking into your paypal, there is a tranfer buttom on your pay pal, in that way if some doesn't have paypal you can dep. in your cking and then transfer to paypal, the way you can spend from you paypal. Hope this helps. Lace
