Selling on ebay for a 14 year old

  BIG Ben strikes 10 again! 12:14 05 Apr 2005


I wan't to sell some stuff on ebay,but rather than use my dads card to pay for it id rather use mine,is it possible to use my cash card to pay for the selling fees or not?

I have a NatWest Solo card

I don't think a Slo card is the same as a credit card, so it probably won't offer the same protection for on-line purchases. Worth asking NatWest first though, in case I'm wrong.

When you set up on e-bay as a seller, you need to provide both a credit card reference and a bank account reference. You are then asked which of the two you want to have the costs deducted from.

As octal rightly points out, the use of debit cards online is not recomended due to the lack of protection in the event of fraud.

I only have/use a debit card for all PayPal transactions on Ebay and have not had any problems in 128 transactions (touch wood).

The main thing to remember is to check the sellers or buyers ratings and feedback, it is also possible to email the people who provided feedback and check with them (still not foolproof I know), if in any doubt don't trade, there are plenty of reliable traders on Ebay who make an honest living and very few conmen.

The percentages are way in your favour.

Use the Community tab to check on a trader if in doubt click here there is a forum and discussion board and it is all designed to help.

Happy trading.

I do have a paypal account which is registered on my card and i use it often to buy,And i use it rarely to recieve payments,although my account is un verified which isn't important to me as Ill never go over the limit of £200.

Perhaps I should beg for him to let me use his card to pay ebay selling fees.

Or perhaps I should ask him, him being a bank manager,but he was wrong about me not being able to use my card for paypal so ill just ask him to look into it,or i shall email natwest.

Hi,Sounds like you are experienced?

Is it going against ebay rules to advertise like a site,I don't want people to bid or pay for it.

Just to tell them some info ect.

Thankyou for the link and your help i shall check it out.

Sorry I'm not quite sure what you mean there, it's best to check with Ebay about advertising on their site, use the forum or discussion group.

Sorry,It didn't make sense did it?

I shall ask the discussion group.

Well I have always used my Paypal account to buy things from ebay and other sites,though its my dads ebay account but my paypal account,so he lets me buy anything I wan't (without permission) if im paying it from my account directly.

I won't tell if you don't ;-)
