How Do I Buy Something On eBay?

About eBay's Feedback System

eBay is famous for its highly successful feedback system. Each item for sale on eBay shows how many transactions (buying and selling) a particular seller has had on eBay, and the seller's feedback information. Below is a description of the "Seller info" area on eBay:

How Do I Register With eBay?

If you have never bought anything on eBay before, you will need to register with them. Registering is FREE..

What Is PayPal?

PayPal was developed as a way to keep a buyer's payment information (credit card, bank account, etc.) from being seen by sellers. If you buy something on eBay, the majority of sellers will accept PayPal as a way to pay for your purchase.

PayPal is free for buyers. If you use PayPal to pay for an item, PayPal has your payment information but they do not show it to anyone you are paying.

To pay with PayPal, you sign up with PayPal (it's free for buyers) and give them payment information (like a credit card or bank account info) you want to use in the future when you buy something. When you make a purchase from an eBay seller or anyone else that accepts PayPal payments, you send the money from your email address to their email address, and the seller never sees your personal payment information.
