I have been trying to purchase an item for the past 3 hours with my perfectly fine visa credit card, I called my account holder and they said there was nothing wrong with it and I made absolutely sure my data was correct when I entered it! I do not have a paypal and this happens almost every time I wish to buy something off of ebay! What do I do? I am extremely upset about this and demand an answer or this problem to be fixed!

EBAY does NOT HANDLE purchase PAYMENTS in ANY way, shape or form.
That is what PayPal is for.
If you want to buy on ebay - open a PayPal account and register your credit card with PayPal.

The only way you can use your credit card without Paypal is finding a seller that is has a merchant account that will accept credit card payments directly.
There are a few, but the majority of sellers request Paypal payments.
It is easy to link your credit card to a Paypal account. Is there some reason why you can't open a Paypal account?
