Payment on Ebay
So recently I have begun to look for an entry level road bike. However I found that in my price range, the only decent bikes you find will be a used bike. So I began looking through ebay and found a great deal, but since I am new I do not really know what I am doing..
So heres my question: I haven't registered any type of credit card or pay pal account. Can I bid, and then do that after? Or do I have to register on pay pal, or put in my credit card before hand?
Thanks a lot, and sorry if this has been posted before..I couldn't find anything when searching.
Also, if I do have to register, or submit my card information how do I go about doing that?
paypal is kind of a middle man thing. you can transfer funds from your credit card or bank account (i suggest credit card) to your paypal, and then from paypal to the seller.
with that being said, many people like you to pay quickly and usually wont send anything unless they receive payment. you should probably have you paypal account all set up (credit card on file and varified) and attached to your ebay account before buying anything

Sten: Of course, in Thailand there is no skiing.
i'd assume you can't bid without an account, so make an account. you don't need to hook it up to your credit card or bank account either, you can send a money order which is basically a check that can't be fake. make sure the seller accepts money orders though; many dont because they have to be mailed so they take much longer than sending the money through say paypal. as a new ebay buyer, remember, if you win the auction - pay for the item. its the most annoying thing as a seller to have a non-paying buyer!
you dont need a paypal account to bid, and if you win you can make one then pay. it doesnt take to long to make one.
