    So I have a verified PayPal account with a bank account attached to it. Do I need to have a credit card on file to buy something? Or can I buy with just a bank account attached.

    Depends on which country you're living in. PayPal has different options for each country. Some countries, yes, no need of a credit card, but some others do.

    Not sure about other countries, but in the UK you need both - a bank account and a card connected to the PayPal account. As PayPal puts it - it's because the card is your backup payment method if the bank payment (also called "Instant Bank Transfer") fails.

    There's some more information here: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4055559

    Either upload funds from your bank and shop.
    Or you need a credit card attached to it.

    not true, im from uk had pp account 8 yrs
    i did have a cc on my account until 2008 but after 2 hacks i removed it
    no problem with pp there, just means funds only go 1 way, pp>bank
    not the other way

    So for a US PayPal account I can buy things with just a bank account attached and not a card?
