How to Link PayPal to eBay

When making purchases on eBay, one of the safest methods of transactions is to use PayPal.

Both buyer and seller are protected, and you'll find that a lot of sellers will only accept PayPal as a method of payment. And as a buyer, there's no cost to using the service.

Linking your PayPal and eBay accounts is a very simple process:

  1. Click My eBay in the top right corner of the page.
  2. Click the Account tab.
  3. Scroll down to Paypal Account information and click Link My Paypal account
  4. You may be prompted to sign in to your eBay account again. Enter your credentials and click login.
  5. You'll then be prompted to sign in to your PayPal account. Enter your credentials and click login.
  6. When you see the message that you're almost done linking your accounts, click Return to eBay

How to Disconnect PayPal From eBay

Unlinking your PayPal account from eBay is a one-click process:

  1. Click My eBay in the top right corner of the page.
  2. Click the Account tab.
  3. Scroll down to Paypal Account information and click Unlink accounts and your PayPal information will be removed from eBay.

You can also revoke access through your PayPal account:

  1. Go to Settings > Security > Permissions you've given and click Update.
  2. You'll see a list of the sites or services you've granted access to your PayPal account. Find eBay and click Remove.

Using PayPal on eBay is one of many great tips for first-time buyers on eBay, including carefully researching both the seller and the item you're purchasing, and using automatic bidding.
