Thanks Ranger

paypal will give you a mastercard number to shop online with, though

I don't mean the actual physical mastercard, either, although you can get that too. Also a Visa now.

Ya I can't find it on Paypal... can you help me?

Special J July 9 2005 10:22 PM EDT

it is the paypal mastercard debit card, and from what I understand it is only good for the money already in your paypal account.

AdminJonathan July 9 2005 10:26 PM EDT

no, I'm NOT talking about the debit card

at the bottom of your account page, click Shops

then on the right of the Shops page, click "Shop Anywhere"

there you go

Is that an US only thing? For me, doesn't even has a 'Shop' link at the bottom (or anywhere else) of the page.

{CB1}Lukeyman July 10 2005 8:42 AM EDT

I can find shop, but i can't find anything like shop anywhere

{CB1}Lukeyman July 10 2005 8:46 AM EDT

found it, on the bar, after you go to shops go shops/vdebit

Thanks Jon, thats great!

I don't know Bart. At the bottom of the page, there should be a whole bunch of links, such as:

Mobile | Mass Pay | Money Market | ATM/Debit Card | BillPay | Referrals | About Us | Accounts | Fees | Privacy | Buyer Credit | Security Center | Contact Us | User Agreement | Developers | Shops | Gift Certificates/Points

One of them is 'Shops', as you can see. The link is

This is the bottom of my paypal page:

Mass Pay | Referrals | About Us | Account Types | Fees | Privacy | Security Center | Contact Us
User Agreement | Developers

Also, when I visit that shops link directly (while logged in) I get:

"Shops are currently unavailable."

{CB1}Lukeyman July 10 2005 9:58 AM EDT

hmmm, weird

{CB1}Lukeyman July 10 2005 10:03 AM EDT

go to Auction tools/bottom of the page and click view all tools/ look in htere, it should be around the bottom/ Virtual Debit

bartjan July 10 2005 10:14 AM EDT

Mmm, found that "view all tools" page, but also noticed the last column in that table...
