I rarely buy off of e-bay, but there is one auction that I really want to bid on. In order to bid it says "paypal account required." Does this mean that I need to place money into my paypal account so I can transfer the money over if I win the auction? I would like to pay through paypal with just a credit card. Last time I bought an item on ebay I paid through paypal with a credit card but I don't think I logged into paypal.com in order to do so..I was just redirected somewhere by ebay. I'm confused.. I don't want to make a bid right now to figure this out because I don't want to make the bid go up quickly. Could anyone explain this 'paypal account required' thing to me?
