paypal questions...

i have a few quick questions i hope people here can help me with....

first the facts...

i would like to send $40 to someone privately for DVDs via paypal.
i would like to use my credit card for this.


can i make this transaction WITHOUT giving my bank account info? (i do NOT want paypal having access to my bank account which has a substantial amount of money in it)

can i simply just click a link and send the other party a $40 payment as if i was shopping at an online store or is it more complicated than that?

thank you for your help!

Yes, you may make payment via credit card without disclosing any bank account numbers.

Once you have registered, all you have to do is enter the recepient's e-mail, an amount, select the type of payment from a list, add a note to the transaction if you wish, and press enter (actually, it's a two-setp process, the first is to verify your data and the next makes the payment).

To make a payment with a credit card, you must have a "Premier" account. The recepient must have a either a "Premier" or a business account to be able to accept a credit card payment and will be charged a 2.9% fee plus 30 (35?) cents for the transaction.
