i've used my card with paypal now they say i have to link them to my bank acc. i just don't want to give them access to my whole bank acc. don't understand why there is a limit of how much i can spend without linking my bank to them. hackers can go anyplace and how do i know p.p. will stand behind me if my acc. gets hacked?

You would rather give your credit card, debit card or bank account information to a perfect stranger?
There isn't a safer on line financial service available. PayPal doesn't share your financial information with anybody.
You attach your credit card, debit card or bank account to PayPal and you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
And, 95% of all eBay sellers will only accept PayPal.

Everyone has to become verified, attach a bank account after they reach their lifetime spending/sending limit.
Open a free checking account and use that.
Do not attach your main household bank account.
Otherwise, your eBay purchasing will be very limited.
