It is because Paypal charges the seller a % each time that they make a sell. Also, paypal is owned by EBAY, who is a competitor (half.com is to amazon.com marketplace.)

I just downloaded something yesterday called Paypal Plugin. Haven't used it yet but they claim you can use your paypal acct to pay merchants even if they don't take paypal. They seem to create a temporary credit card for 1 transaction.

You can generate a one-time use card number without the plug-in installed by going to Profiles - Paypal Plug-In.
