    You either need a bank account or a credit card, I believe.

    To be verified I think you do, but I don't think it's required.

    Credit card for the instant payment. Bank account if you only want to be able to do the e-checks. Lots of egg sellers don't do the e-checks because they can take several days to clear.

    Sounds like you can use it without having either. [​IMG] I think PayPal in and of itself acts as a type of bank for holding money.

    * Get a fee-free checking-- and just tell them you DON'T WANT ANY CHECKS, Jeff. SHRED any they send AFTER making ABSOLUTELY SURE they didn't charge your account for the darn checks. Treat it like a savings account, thereafter. See?

    Quote:You'd have to get one of paypal's debit cards, and then you would be subjected to fees for withdrawl & then again from the ATM you used.
