using a different credit card on ebay
Well, ebay sucks once more.
I havent used ebay in awhile.
My bday is coming up and I want an MP3 player. My mom said she would buy me one and gave me her credit card number, etc.
So I click on an MP3 player on ebay and win the auction.
Well it turns out that since my account is registered and is the account I won the auction with, I cant use a card that is NOT in my name.
(you could if the merchant selects credit cards other than paypal.)
So now I have no other way of paying for the MP3 other than going through my credit card. Thats fine but I already bought other stuff and am maxed out for awhile.
So in short. EBAY sucks with that PAYPAL security crap.

A) Have your mom make a deposit in your account so you can use paypal?
B) Go to the ATM with said credit card, take out money, deposit money into your account then follow steps in A)
C) Send a Check or Money order that your mom gives you

CAUSE ITS MY BIRTHDAY DAMMIT. Moms buy things for their sons on their birthdays.
MASS. SUCK IT I do make big bucks but right now, I am very broke. Winter time wasnt nice and I put a lot of money back into my business such as equipment.
I just realized I can stall on the payment for a few days. It said pay within 48 hours but they can suck my dick on that one.
But. As clever as I am, Im gonna make an account on ebay for my mom and then... With my account, Im gonna set up an auction, then have my moms account buy the auction and pay with paypal with her credit card into my paypal. Im so SMART....

I tried that and it kept putting my last name under the card holder name.
Im gonna go back and retry it since you said it could be done.

Heres a question. How do you know who to pay in your paypal account since you dont log onto your account that has the won item? Do you just write down the auction number?

no we have different last names....
when i win.. and click pay pal it dirrects me to log in on my paypal account, but i cant, so i click on something else.. I dont remeber exactly what but play around with it...i think it gives you an option of "not already a paypal user? register now" or something

Im loged in on my ebay account, but not "my own" pay pal account persay....
its registered in my moms name and her card, since my card is already registered i cant reregister it.. so just make a whole new name and stuff for paypal, not ebay

I just registered her and used her account to pay for my ebay account item. It worked so far. Thanks.
