    As I remember I added my checking account and debit card number. I am one of the few that has no credit card.

    Been a long time ago since I set my account up. Seems like they needed a ton of info so I could set it up to buy and sell.

    I would go to your bank and open up a free checking account to attach to your paypal rather than your main account. That way if something happens you can close it and not have it affect you much.... Same with the credit card.. Either get a MAC Debit attached to your free checking or use a very low limit card you have..

    x2 - good advice.

    I definetly would NOT use a primary account of any kind. Get a low limit Visa. Safer if there is abuse. Your checking doesn't get hit by fraud or problems.
