    Default Does Paypal accept American Express?

    Does Paypal accept American Express or not? I want to use my Amex credit card to make a payment for an ebay auction. Will they accept it? Does Paypal accept American Express gift cards too because i have one of those for $100 that I might use for payment instead. I dunno.

    Paypal does accept Amex. That's actually the card I use whenever I use Paypal payments because of the extra fraud protection and dispute resolution I get through Amex.

    But does Paypal accept American Express gift cards? I highly doubt it. To add a credit card onto your Paypal account the billing address has to be verified and I don't see how that could be done with a gift card but I could be wrong on that.

    Not to be mean but instead of posting this question on a forum would it have not be easier to login to your Paypal account and try adding an AMEX and see if it works? LOL I'm sure Paypal tells you what cards it accepts on the site.
    OBAMA
    Stop talking crap about him!
