Can I use a ebay gift card without using a paypal account?

 

 

I bought a $50 ebay gift card and i do not want to use paypal or even create a paypal account, i just want to use the funds on the card.    

if i do have to use paypal do i have to put in my bank pr credit card info? I do not wish to do that because i do not trust things like that. 

 

 

 

Thank you.

You have to use Paypal to pay with the Ebay gift card. You can use Paypal as a guest but if there is a problem with the transaction such as you don't receive it or it's not as described you will have to register with Paypal to receive a refund.

Using a credit card through PayPal is by far the safest way to pay for anything online on any website.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

Login to PayPal!
