Here's what we found for "How to pay for items with credit or debit cards "

Credit and debit card payments on eBay are processed through PayPal, so you can use a card to pay for an item even if the seller only accepts PayPal. There are two ways to pay with a credit or debit card:

If it’s linked to your PayPal account
  1. Select pay with PayPal at checkout.
  2. Select the card you'd like to pay with.
  3. Select Continue to complete your purchase.
If you don’t have a PayPal account, or your card isn’t linked
  1. Select the option to pay with a credit card at checkout.
  2. Enter your payment information. If you want us to save your credit or debit card information so you don't have to enter it every time, check the box to Save this card to eBay.
  3. Select Continue to complete your purchase.

If you want to link a credit or debit card to your PayPal account, go to your wallet on paypal.com and link a card.


When you pay using PayPal, you’re covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee. If you choose to pay by credit/debit card, you aren’t covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee, but you may be covered by PayPal Buyer Protection or your credit card provider.
