Question about PayPal

I've never used PayPal and I want to start selling some things on Ebay.

What info will I need to start selling things using PayPal? Just a credit card? Or do I have to enter a bank account into PayPal as well?

I don't want to deposit the money I make in my bank account, I'll just re-spend it on Ebay.

Open a small checking account that has a debit card attached. Use that account, and you can transfer money from it to your regular account from time to time. (or the other way around)

That is also a good way to keep track of your e-bay activity for tax purposes.

I would highly recommend linking your credit card to your account and then using only your credit card to buy/transfer money. That way if you get screwed, you can dispute it with your CC instaed of dealing with Paypal, as they're not the most easiest people to deal with if you get screwed on a deal.

Can I accept money from other people if I only have a credit card on file?

I'm not sure if that would make me "verified" or not.

I can't seem to find the option to add funds with a credit card.
Can you only transfer funds from a bank account?
