    hey there, ive got a paypal account, and ive decided to start getting paid for parts through it. what do i need to do in order to get the money? if i dont cash it, will that money be used towards a purchase i make, or will the purchase come off the credit card (meaning that the money i get paid goes somewhere else and can only be cashed). help me :o

    thanks

    If you want the cash, you have to verify a bank account with paypal.

    Yes you can use the money you receive to pay for other items. Whenever you pay for something with paypal, it asks you where the funding is coming from that you intend to complete the transaction with, just change it from your default.

    do you have a positive balance? I usually just go to the send money tab, type in the email address and bam!

    so the status on the payments made to you are still "uncleared" that means that who ever payed you had it drafted from thier bank account through paypal (they didn't have it already in their paypal account). It takes 3 business days to clear that way.

    edit: if you had to upgrade then that person paid you through a credit card

    note now paypal will get a small % of each time you recieve money...not spend it
