I found a club on ebay I wanted to buy but the seller only takes paypal. Any one here know if I can use a Visa card to pay through paypal. I do not want to join pp, however.
You can, but you still have to "join" PayPal to use it. Unless I'm not understanding the question.
How does it work, LB?
Well, thats that, I dont want to join, so I am out of it. Thanks.
You could always open an account, purchase, then close the account I think. Don't hold me to any of this as I know it has changed alot over the years. I hope I'm not misleading you.
no, not from what I know also.
I know I could use a credit card via pp if I wanted to buy it now, but we negotiated a lower price and pp wont let me use a credit card then.
Ask the seller to change the buy it now price in his listing to reflect the negotiated deal and then use your CC.
Great Idea, Steve. Thanks! It worked and now I am the proud owner (its on the way) of a Ping G15 3-iron. Now my set is complete.
My work here is done.
Brings back old memories. This is just the way Hammer4413 and I met; me selling and him talking me down. Then I informed him about the FGI site, and the rest is history.
And he's still cheap.

Yes this type of thing was what FGI was about and it happened frequently.
Good on Steve and congrats to ringo as well
Par4QC And he's still cheap
He's a big spender compared to most around here.
Getting an eBay issue successfully resolved always feels like a win vs "big brother".
So Steve, I was selling a Ping putter and the buyer wanted to use a cc, not PayPal. I don't see how I can take a cc as payment. I'm not a business...
Ended up telling him no, PayPal only.
I was unaware that a CC could be used for BIN until Ringo stated it above. It seems that if you have a PP acct, a buyer should be able to send you $ from his CC, but I don't know. I only came up with my suggestion when Ringo stated that his seller could take a CC on a Buy It Now (in the 7th post of the thread.)
What's the rub with Ebay and Paypal? I have been using both for many years and haven't had a single issue with either. And, I prefer purchases with Paypal everywhere I online shop. I make Ebay purchases and use paypal and it is charged to my Visa account with my local credit union. Never had a glitch.
I’ve always wondered this too. PayPal is pretty much the best company I’ve ever dealt with.
And, he has made quite a few purchases through all the years. Have never regretted lowering prices for that feller, having got the opportunity to meet him and play a few rounds.
Ebay is trying to get into the payments end of their sales, and cutting out PP. They sold off PP in recent years.
