Default loving paypal

Got all my wife's Christmas shopping done on line, and all paid with paypal. She will have no idea where her presents came from Now if I can just keep her from peeking in them. Last year I had to hide her presents in the trunk of the Miata.

You don't have a CC hooked up to your paypal account? It's how I pay for my ebay hookers and blow, and my wife's presents. She's a retard though. She buys stuff for me on Amazon and I get the email notification at work that it was sent.

I have a CC on file with Paypal, also linked to my checking account. When I go to buy stuff it doesn't really give me the option of how to fund the purchase, it just wants to pull it from checking, which the wife can see, and that is the problem. Last time I went to buy parts from 949 I went through their Paypal checkout, didn't sign into my account because I just wanted to use the Amex (for which the wife does not see the itemized charges ). When I put in the billing address of the credit card, Paypal says "we see you already have an account" or some **** like that and wouldn't let me continue with the credit card. Of course I called Emilio and he took it over the phone no problem, but is there some secret to forcing Paypal into taking my credit card? This would really help make my life easier.

I'm so glad I clicked on this thread. Had forgotten to order my wife's new iPod Nano.

She's been waiting years for them to make one with an FM tuner before upgrading from her ORIGINAL nano.

She'll never know it's coming thanks to PayPal and some recent part sales.

Chicks dig surprises.

When you are sending the money, look right below the Payment Method area. There's a small link that simply says "Change". That will allow you to change to the credit card or whatever you have linked to the PayPal account.

I use the PayPal debit card sometimes, it's a MasterCard debit card that pulls the money straight from your PayPal balance. Free for purchases, $1 fee for ATM withdrawals.

buying with paypal is fine but then when you accept it as payment and some douchebag does a reverse chargeback on your *** 3 months later after you've thrown away the shipping receipt that it blows...
