I am a new member in mylot n i was trying to register my account for paypal, now if i select a personal account option it`s asking me for a credit/debit card numbers. Was just a little concerned about it. Can someone please help me with this or is there a way in which we can open a paypal account without giving this kind of information???

You should only have to enter credit/debit card numbers if you want to link your account to a credit card. I know plenty of people who've opened paypal accounts without having a credit card. You should be able to skip that step. I know I was able to - I don't have a credit or debit card, but I have a paypal account.

It is purely optional to add a credit/debit card to a paypal account. i live in India and I do not have a credit/debit card... but I do have a paypal account without using any credit/ debit card

Open a PREMIER ACCOUNT WITH PAYPAL. Personal account will be of no help. Skip the question regarding credit card. You just have to fill all other questions. If there is any problem, get back to me.

For some reason Paypal appear to have different rules according to the country of the person registering, so it is difficult to answer this for you. I live in the United Kingdom, and even though I do have a credit card registered with Paypal it was not essential. I would be allowed to operate a Paypal account without a credit card. However, I see that you are from India, so the rules are likely to be different. I suggest that you check with the Paypal website to find out the requirements.
