If your cards has a Mastercard or Visa logo on it then most likely you are protected from fraudulent charges. Check with your bank to make sure. Either way you don't need to link it to a Paypal,

Also, it's a bit funny to see everybody give the advice "use paypal: it's safer". It's definitely NOT safer.

You are more likely to be screwed over using Paypal than when using the services directly provided by your bank. Paypal is not a regular bank and not subject to the same regulations and rules. They can freeze your account indefinitely and block your transactions based on whatever they consider suspicious, they can mess with your money far easier than any bank and will not necessarily reimburse you in case of fraud (like a bank would).

That doesn't mean Paypal doesn't provide a useful service in many situations, but as a general rule of thumb: if you have no particular reason to add extra variables to your financial transactions, don't.

They say PayPal could freeze and do no refunds... I have this debit card which also works as a credit card... It's called Visa Web. Neat thing

paypal + bank account = fastest and easiest way to use paypal once you have it setup.

thats what I sue when its available, which is most of the time. the only time Im
I use debit online is when a company that has both physical and online stores doesn't accept paypal. If the company is online only, they should have paypal and you should stay away from ones that dont. now if you are on ebay, you and the seller should always use paypal.

everyone has different experiences tho, I myself have never had real problems with paypal. make sure you read all the faqs from whatever website you buy from or whatever service you use and ask their customer service questions if you must . you really have to make your own judgement on what you are comfortable with as people like us here on ISH will either have you jumping the gun or be paranoid on these things if you just base your decisions on our advice
