Default Is my ebay and Paypal linked or not?

I cannot for the life of me see whether my paypal is linked to ebay. I looked under every option. But here is the thing. I do not sell more than 5 items a day, so my ebay is under and individual account NOT a seller account. I still can recieve payments at the end of auction through paypal automatically without sending the customers an invoice. And in paypal when I print a label it gives me a "return to ebay" button which takes me right back to my ebay screen. BUT, off and on when I mark payments as recieved in ebay (for someone sending a money order, I then click "print shipping label" in ebay and it takes me to paypal to login and then will say "The buyers info could not automatically be prefilled because your paypal and ebay accounts have not been linked". I have never gone into ebay and purposely tried to link them (that I can remember). Anyway, its confusing to me, can you still do what I currently do with my auctions (taking automatic paypal payments and have paypal preferred listed in my auctions) but at the same time not be linked between accounts? Remember this is not a seller account, just an individual!

Paypal >> Profile >> Auctions (under Selling Preferences)

If you don't have any accounts listed, you're not linked.

Sorry to be such a pain in the @$$ with this but Im not sure if Im checking the right things: Here is my "my ebay" views on the left of the my ebay page. I clicked on "Prefrences" under "My account" which brought up what I will also paste below this:

> I do have my paypal email address listed under payment addresses in ebay, and when someone pays me by paypal through an ebay transaction it does show marked as paid with the $ sign under my items sold in ebay. BUT, when I get a person who pays by money order and I mark the item as "payment recieved" in "my ebay" and click on "print shipping label" it takes me to login at paypal, but IN paypal when I go to print the label it tells me "the buyers info could not be prefilled bc your paypal and ebay accounts are not linked". and then it tells me how to link them. Remember this account is setup as an individual account NOT a seller account, although I do sell small amount under it (like I said, usually no more than 10 items at a time).

Any ideas?

Account type Individual


Right there is where it shows its an "individual" account. Maybe my account will not work for someone who sells hundreds of items. Do those accounts have to be registered as a "seller account"? Maybe this is why I am having problems finding the options you guys are?

What is meant by linked?
I haven't registered a new account in over a year, however I might be forced to soon. I don't recall ever entering my Paypal info when registering, but I have on occassion paid my seller fees with a PP address using the same email that I used when I registered and also entered that address in a listing so buyer could pay via PP immeadiately.
If that is the case, could you just not check the PP box but put it somewhere in your listing and then send them a separate invoice through my messages?

Keith,

I THINK this means you need to go to Paypal first, then the others:

I could be mistaken, tho!
