I am an avvid Ebay seller and buyer. I don't do much shipping via internet so I go to the postal service at least once or twice a week. Because I consider this a part time job and am in business for myself I needed a credit or debit card that I could keep track of using as my business account.

After signing up with Paypal, I noticed that they had a Visa Debit card available to their members so I decided to sign up. I rceived the card in about 10 days, signed into my Paypal account and activated the card.

It works exactly like a credit or Visa/ Mastecard logo debit card. All I have to do is swipe the card and away I go with my purchases. I use it often for shipping and buying business things and I haven't once had problems with it.

I find that it is very easy to tell what my balance or charges are. All I need to do is login to Paypal and the charges are right there.

I do find that there is a downfall to the using the card. Unless you are using it for purchases on Ebay, they charge you a 3% fee for using the card. I think thats a little high, but I try not to think of that because after all this is for my business.

I would reccomend getting the card for anyone that is a seller or a buyer to Ebay. It is easy to create a Paypal account. Just remember that you have to wait 90 days to apply for the card, but once you get it, you will be very happy you did.
