    Default Are online payments difficult with a PayPal card?

    Does anyone have the PayPal card? Not the debit but I think it's a Mastercard. Anyhow I was thinking about this and wondering how easy it is to pay bills online. If my Paypal account is short, is that a big problem? Don't want lots of hoops. I do lots of buying and selling on eBay, that's why I'm looking at it.

    I also need more credit for a trip I'm planning. My 2 $500 limit cards are going to be maxed out by the time I get back. Also would there be any considerations for offline purchases like a tank of gas or a motel room?

    I had this card, it's actually pretty good. Not sure what you mean by your Paypal account being short? It is a Mastercard. If you treat it well it will grow with you. They gave me a 3k limit to start, and after 4 months of heavy use and paying in full before the due date they raised it to 5800. GE is known for generous CLIs if you treat them right.

    You can go online and pay them from your Paypal account. The Mastercard is just that, a credit card, so you can use it anywhere. You don't have to pay it from your Paypal balance you can use your bank account, just as you can to pay your Paypal account. It's as easy to do as any card that allows online payments, it links up with your Paypal account.

    Any questions I can help with please ask I'll be glad to share what I know.

    I was asking because I don't always leave enough in my PayPal account and I didn't want to find out after I charged on it that it could only be paid with PayPal.

    I previously tried a prepaid card that could only be loaded from PayPal, but I never had funds in my account to do it, then when I sold something on eBay, I forgot and deposited the funds in my bank account, so I never did load the card, I just threw it away.
