credit card verification is not compulsory ( upto certain limits ) . pls see the following information : http://www.mylot.com/o/affiliate.aspx it says : "Do I need a credit card to sign up for a PayPal account? We called PayPal and they tell us you do not need a credit card to open an account or receive funds. They did say that in order to withdraw the money to your bank you would have to link you bank account. " --------------------------------------- But if we verify our account with a credit card then certain limits will be removed and we can easily add / withdraw money from / to Paypal account .

Can i ask you one thing? Do you have a credit card nadia? Nadia is better than naadia. For your question, paypal can be considered as a virtual bank account. Your earnings from mylot,will be sent to your paypal account from where you can buy anything from ebay with that money online.
