I think you can also be issued a virtual paypal mastercard number instantly as well. I am not sure of the details, but I remember them having this feature.

Sorry dude, they don't accept Paypal, although as suggested above, try getting the extra Paypal funds transferred to your bank account and pay from there.

you can request a paypal debit card, too, in which case you could use it. That's what we have.

Don't you need a business Paypal account to be eligible?
uhmmm.. probably? I actually don't know much about paypal other than how to use it.. the account is my fiance's and he set it up long before we met.

anyone can set up their paypal as a business one, though, can't they?

You can use the Debit/Credit card feature I think so long as you're a Verified user. They just give you a credit card number and expiration date, and you use that when filling it billing information - which is pretty frikkin' cool!

The downside to this thing though is that your limit is $150 a day I think. So, you can't buy a computer with the money in there, and I had trouble buying some RAM back in the day when I used it... so as long as you're only buying below $150, the feature is great

I did the bill me later option. While it may cost a little more I really needed the new computer and it beats paying out the wazoo on the Apple Card.

I recommend it (so far).
