Ok, I emailed my Company, to find out How I can Sell on places like Ebay, with out having to pay the company with a credit card I don't have and if I could use My paypal account.. The told me two ways the first was Manual and I understand that... The second the said I can process the order though a pre paid debit card...does this mean paypal? Can I accept the order then pay through Pay Pal? I am very lost here any answers would be great!

They might be talking about a debit card that you can get at your bank. I'm not sure if the gas stations or places like walmart sell them yet. They are debit cards / credit cards that you can purchase like a gift card. You go to your bank and buy them for a set dollar amount. It's like a gift card you would give someone to use at Walmart but instead of having to use it at a particular store the card has the visa/mastercard logo on it and it functions like a debit card. So, if you get one from the bank for $20.00 then you can charge up to $20.00 on it. I hope I'm making sense.
