My paypal account is not linked to my ebay account apparently. wtf? How can it not be?

Ive been buying and selling on there for years without a problem, I opened my paypal through the ebay site.

Any ideas? Im really fed up now, was trying to buy a ds (nintendo) game for ds (son!) birthday and the item went for much less than I was prepared to pay. Or does anyone have a Mario & Sonic at the Opympic Games they would like to sell me? grrrrr.

You need to affiliate it to your ebay account. This is the step-by-step guide.

Thanks for that lou, but I went through the steps, addresses were aleady there. I clicked on the paypal link and it just told me i'd created a paypal account and to start entering all my bank details etc just like I did when I first opened it. Im paypal verified etc...dont understand?

btw, ebay automatically take my selling fees from my paypal accout, surely its already linked?

Do you have a credit card on file with paypal and or ebay?

I am only asking because I have set my preferences to block bidders who dont have a credit card on file.

it's a glitch - have a look at the ebay boards, pinks have posted about it.
