Good morning, can someone tell me other than ebay which I don't use, where can I use the money in my paypal account. Is there a site that tells you where you can use it? I tried to look in search and did not find any thing other than ebay, I have made payout for the second month and was wondering while it is piling up what can I do with it, won't transferit to a bank account so if ebay is only place to use it then Icould have a problem or will have to look ebay over and see what they offer.

You can get a Paypal debit card, and you will be able to use it everywhere. Just go to the Paypal site and look for the debit card(there is also a credit card, so make sure you look to see which one you are getting. There is also a list of sites where you can use Paypal, just go to shop on the paypal website, and it will give you a tons of options. Good luck!

Thank you for the info, I wanted a debit card to use the money in my pay pal account and was told I can not have one unless I give them my bank iformation to get a debit card to use the money out of my paypal account, I did not want to do this,paypal is not a very secure site and they will lock up your accounts for no reason and hold them there for up to 6 months so not giving them account numbers but will look for the list of sites thank you

there is a list when you log into the Paypal site giving a list of various retailers where paypal is accepted. On the UK site its under products and services and then Shop Online Hope that helps Cam

There's no list of sites that use PayPal. Any site you want to purchase stuff from, check the payment options and see if they accept PayPal, a lot of sites do.

There are lots of sites which use paypal. Instead i would advice you to transfer your money to your account and then do the shopping.

I do not use any online sites, I have my paypal money transferred directly to my bank account and then I take it out and do whatever I want with it.

I guess we have the same problem bdugas, My paypal is not yet verified and don't want also to connect it to my bank account, I tried to bid at ebay but it won't let me as long as it will be verified, I didn't use my money yet at paypal and hoping to learn from members here with your post!

I'm pretty sure you can transfer it to your bank account as I have had friends who have successfully done this or there are many sites that accept Paypal! ~Heavens~
