    You log onto paypal with your username and password. Then you can set up how you want to pay--with your credit card or from your bank account. All you need to send or receive a payment is an email address--at least that's how it used to work. The money shows up instantly. Ebay now has direct links to paypal that makes it so easy. Hope this helps...

    You can pay and receive payments via paypal very quickly. Don't forget when you are on the receiving end there is a fee of about 2%. If you already have an account more than likely you have things set up. Just verify your profile and make sure that the links bank account or credit card is valid and up to date. To withdraw funds from people paying you its easier to link the account to a bank account so you can get the funds electronically sent at no charge. Otherwise there will be fees to send it by check. Last thing, if you rent or are planning to rent points make sure you verify all your accounts because an unverified member can only withdraw a certain amount from the payment. For example if you receive a $1000 rental payment your paypal account may only allow you to withdraw $300 at one time. Paypal will walk you through the process of getting this straight.
