    Hi N9ne,

    PayPal can't withdraw payments to a credit card. You could only send the payments to a bank account that is on file.

    Please be sure that you are listed as an authorized contact on the credit card you register.

    You can choose to withdraw your money to a bank account as long as the account is in the same name as the PayPal account.

    Ok, well I'm in UK...

    I could use my dad's card [with his permission of course] to set up the account etc...? but how can I make it so whenever someone sends me money through paypal, it goes into my bank account or something and not onto my dad's credit card?

    yeah, you need a credit card to activate my Australian account - which I don't own, so it sort of defeats the purpose of PayPal IMHO

    Hi N9ne,

    You would need to have a credit card/bank account to withdraw money out of the system.

    -U.S. Users. In order to withdraw funds that PayPal is holding in custody for you, you must confirm the email address that you registered by responding to a message that PayPal will send to that address when you have completed registration, and you must register a bank account or credit card with PayPal. New PayPal Users (who have been in the PayPal system for 120 days or less) are required to complete two out of three authentication steps (confirm bank account, enter Member Number, confirm Social Security Number) in order to withdraw more than $500 per month. Some accounts, at PayPal's discretion, may have this limit even after 120 days. Some accounts, at PayPal's discretion, may have lower limits until the authentication steps have been completed. Account limits, if any, can be viewed from the "View Limits" link on the Account Overview page.

    Your business account will be automatically upgraded to a merchant account if you have reached a certain level of sustainable sales, I think it is $1000 a month. Basically what it does it lowers your fees because you do higher volume. Other than that, it is the same as the Business Account, IIRC.
    It is also explained in my post here:

    I voted Business (and I have the debit card.)

    From the rules:
    Users may register and hold one Personal Account and either one Premier or one Business Account.
    So you're only allowed a Premier and a Personal or a Business and a Personal; not a Premier and Business or two of any kind

    You can't have more than one account type at PayPal IIRC so I'm not sure why some people have voted for more than one
    Well I know some people who have more than one PayPal account.

    I.E. 1 Premier and 1 Business

    .. so I just added the option, just in case

    Premier and Business are the same thing, but Merchant is different.

    To qualify for a PayPal merchant account, you must be a PayPal member for at least 90 days, and received at least $3,000 in PayPal payments in the past 90 days. There are other requirements that you can fulfill to be accepted as a Merchant account, but this one is usually the case.

    The standard receiving fees rate is 2.9% + 30¢, while the Merchant receiving fees rate is 2.2% + 30¢
