There are two ways I've made payments:
1. Use a credit card or debit card through paypal, that you've linked to the account
2. Use the bank account to pay

So you start the transaction through the ecommerce, go through the links to paypal, choose how to pay and it should do the rest.

I'm really not that paypal saavy. If there are problems beyond this, perhaps someone else on the forum knows more?

Ok, so maybe they are just slow or somegthing.

I logged into my account, and even though they (PayPal) said it's at 100%, I still couldn't add money to my account!

I do not use PayPal that often. I recently bought an item from EBay,
and PayPal ( pretended ) to threaten to limit my transaction if I did not link my bank account
as an extra step towards having more "verification" of my personal information.

( I personally do not believe in allowing hackers that much access to my stuff. )

I hesitated to make my payment. Waited one day to think about this situation.

I was inspired by a combination of my impatience with PayPal tactics, and my gut feeling
that PayPal was just "pretending" to threaten to stop my transaction. So I just went ahead
and push forward to make my payment, and there was no problem. The seller received the
payment from me.

I visited my Credit Union to ask questions about Identity Theft and PayPal, etc. . .

She explained that if I only link a credit card or debit card to PayPal, then this is
one layer of isolation to protect my bank account.

If the hackers break into PayPal, then we just replace the card.

However, if my checking account is directly linked to PayPal and the hackers break in,
then I would need to go through the bigger hassle of swapping out my entire bank account,
closing the old account and opening a new one.

I cheated. I linked a bank account that I closed a week later. Once it's done, they don't check it's validity anymore unless you try to ise it.
