I have pnly used paypal once before so don't have funds sitting in it - was planning to pay for an ite I had won with my debit card through paypal but the seller doesn't accept credit or debt cards through paypal (not sure why)
My other option is a personal cheque. Now do I need to put the cheque guarantee number on the back?

hi, you can put your cheque guarantee details on the reverse, but most ebayers will still wait the 5 working days for it to clear and some of them wait 10 working days as cheque can take longer to bounce then the 5 days.

personally i wouldn't put my detaisl on the reverse as i would keep my cheque/debit details confidential

so it isn't expected that you should put the guarantee number on there then . . .?

there is no point writing it on the back. it means nothing at all. the cheque still has to go through the clearing cycle. the seller doesn't have your card there to see so there is 100% no point.

are you able to send a postal order instead?
