When you open a Paypal account it is generally set up to Buy an item. In order to Sell on ebay you will have to upgrade your Paypal account to a selling account. Or have what is called a premiere account.

Follow the instructions given and link your accounts to make purchases. Worry about selling in a month or so after you have tried out the site a few times.
