Hello everyone, I was just wondering if there was a way to pay bills with paypal? I mean without transferring it into the bank account. I have the debit card with paypal, so could I pay with that? I think all of my bills except the credit cards would allow me to. The debit card with my bank account is what I usually use. The credit cards has to be a check or transfer out of my bank account. So I guess there would be no way to pay those with the paypal money other than transferring it? Has anyone ever tried to pay a bill with the debit paypal card, if so did it work? I was just wondering because it would make it a lot easier and quicker on me than having to wait for the transfers. It would probably give me a couple of extra days to make some money as well, that way I would just have to wait for the site to pay me rather than waiting on that and waiting for the transfer from paypal into my bank account. Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone knew?

yes , you can pay bills with paypal. you can pay bills using their balance or their bank accounts . this service is available only to customers who have linked a bank account to their paypal account . look at the company you need to pay . some company now take paypal directly as payment .

I have not tried it ever. But you see, I'm from India and I think here it is not possible to pay the bills directly from Paypal.

It would seem logical that if you have the debit card and your company that you owe money to accepts debit cards, you would then be able to pay the bill. I would ask questions and see if the company accepts debit cards when paying bills. The most they could say is "no".
