    Default Pay money through Paypal?

    Hi,

    This may sound like a stupid question. I set up a Paypal account so that someone could pay me for the photos. I've got the money and transfer it out to my bank account.

    Now I want to use Paypal to pay someone in ebay, my Paypal account is now $0. So do I need to transfer money into my Paypal account first so that Paypal can pay the seller?

    Thanks for the help.

    Your paypal is link to your credit card account hence if you make payment it should deduct from you credit card. No need to transfer.

    go through ebay to paypal and pay the person
    your paypal should be linked to a credit card or/and bank account.
    you can pay the person straight up from the cc or bank account.
    you dont have to transfer money to your pp acct and then pay the money forward.
    (besides transfering money to your acct takes 3-5 business days while paying as i have mentioned is instantaneous)

    I have used Paypal since yr 2000 when i started buying & selling on Ebay. It's good & easy.
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    Just note that if you are purely dealing with USD then it's alright, else they give you really lousy rates when you do exchange between currencies.
