no need of giving your credit card number to your paypal account.But if you want to withdraw more than 500$ a month.Then you need to give your credit card number.

its ok. no problem with that . u cannot withdraw funds if you did not link your card on paypal. thats why they need it. and also u cannot purchase some stuffs in the internet without verifiting your paypal account. u must link your card to your paypal.

You can attach credit card later on, no problem et all. Basically its used for verifying your a/c and making purchases. But make sure you open your paypal a/c with legitimate information, so that in case of any disputes you can verify your details on paypal.

That is ok and you can still withdraw unlike what other say. However do check on Paypal Faq as I know it got different rule for different countries users. I link it to my credit card so as to get verified, that's all and I got another Premier account which is not linked to any credit card but I can still withdraw as normal just that that's a withdraw limit for unverified member.
