They're meant for the initial setup. After that with eBay, you're able to pay your balance from your Paypal account via the "One Time Payment" option.

You don't have to use paypal to pay, just click on other payment method and pay directly with you pre-paid card; best not to even get paypal involved at all.

Ebay send you an invoice every month for its fees.
you can buy them using your gift card or prepaid card that you used during the registration for the seller account by choosing other payment link that will direct you to another page from where you can choose between Paypal or Credit card or bank account.
thx

I was doing very well on ebay and someone had seen some items they wanted immediatly and wanted to pay alot for them (so of course I said OK, because we need the money we had a premie my husband had been out of work and we have alot of bills) Anyway I ended the listings (one did have a bid) and relisted them as buy it knwo features which then this girl could buy these items with buy it know.. Well of course know this girl has not paid me cannot get a hold of her and all of my accounts have been shut down.. I want to continue on ebay but not sure how to do this with paypal and ebay involved..
I did recieve the following letter from paypal today and wanted to know what people thought I and how I should get myself set back up since paypal does so many security checks... PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME I REALLY NEED TO MAKE MONEY AND IF YOU WANT TO CALL ME AND HELP ME WITH THIS I WILL GIVE OUT MY NUMBER PRIVATLY.. ANYWAY PLEASE SOMEONE GET BACK WITH ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO I CAN RESTART MAKING MONEY..

That doesnt make a difference in your case. The thing is is that you broke Ebay policies by ending a listing for a buyer. The buyer was probably an Ebay snitch and they turned you in

Just an FYI... you may want to reconsider using Paypal for paying ebay fees in light of PayPal sharing ALL their information w ebay.

But this is more worrisome:
I recently tried to open a FedEx account with a prepaid card (2 different ones, actually). Although the prepaids worked everywhere, including ebay, Fedex claimed the card could not be authorized. Using a real credit card worked fine for the FedEx acct. These were $100 gift cards, so I don't think FedEx was doing a trial authorization for more than $100, to fail them.

This begs the question:
Does a credit card provider communicate an extra bit (literally, a binary bit) of information when veryfing a card, which says this is a prepaid card, or a card with certain limitations?

The ramifications are serious.
If the majority of all new account registrations are done with a real credit card, and folks generally accept eBay's urge to use the bank account for seller fees, than only 1% or less of registrations may show a "limited type" card, combined with an insistence on using the CARD for future eBay fees.

If that's not a flag, then I don't know what is.

And ebay knows this is a methodology suspendees are forced to use...
And eBay has a T&S team currently bent on using statistics like
"1% of all sellers cause 35% of all mischief", and
"2% of sellers provide such a poor experience for the rest, they need to be cleaned out"

I'm afraid that if you register with the scenario above (your only choice, really), you will forever be under the microscope and scrutinized by T&S thugs.

Just food for thought.
